"Everything At Once" as written by and Lenka Kripac....
As sly as a fox, as strong as an ox
As fast as a hare, as brave as a bear
As free as a bird, as neat as a word
As quiet as a mouse, as big as a house

All I wanna be, all I wanna be, oh
All I wanna be is everything

As mean as a wolf, as sharp as a tooth
As deep as a bite, as dark as the night
As sweet as a song, as right as a wrong
As long as a road, as ugly as a toad

As pretty as a picture hanging from a fixture
Strong like a family, strong as I wanna be
Bright as day, as light as play
As hard as nails, as grand as a whale

All I wanna be, all I wanna be, oh
All I wanna be is everything

As warm as the, the sun, as silly as fun
As cool as a tree, as scary as the sea
As hot as fire, cold as ice
Sweet as sugar and everything nice

As old as time, as straight as a line
As royal as a queen, as buzzed as a bee
Stealth as a tiger, smooth as a glider
Pure as a melody, pure as I wanna be

All I wanna be, all I wanna be, oh
All I wanna be is everything at once

    General CommentGood song. A song about insecurity. Often the most insecure are the ones who are the most beautiful. They simply aren't programmed to see it, so they believe they must put on an act to be viewed as beautiful. Some people have special x-ray vision and saw through the act almost immediately...still loving ALL of the person, warts and all. And what a sexy, sexy, sexy person she is! Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm

    General CommentI like how she said "ugly as a toad" and things because sometimes, when you really, really don't like the skin you're in, you just wanna be anything you're not, or everything. I really love this song

    General Commenti like how all she said was so beautifully (her voice so cute). then, she wants to be all of the good in this word, like a most perfect person than the other, but in several lyric she said the opposite like "ugly as a toad" that i think it's okay if isn't good at all but she must become something although anything
    am i right?

    Lyric Correction"As quiet as a mouse," not "quite."

    Also second refrain (and subsequent refrains) is
    "All I wanna be, oh
    All I wanna be is everything
    Everything at once"

    General CommentSorry, I do not know how to delete my previous reply. I think this song is about people's expectations on who the singer should be, so the singer these many masks for herself, so she can satisfy these people. I could be wrong, though.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about people's expectations on who the singer should be, and the singer feels frustrated that she has to follow them, so she creates these many masks for herself, so she can satisfy these people. I could be wrong, though.
