"Everything But Me" as written by Brian Craddock, Christopher A. Daughtry, Josh Paul and Joshua Earl Steely....
Far away in another place
I'd give my soul just to see her face
If I'd have known it meant my suitcase
Of everything that you just couldn't say
How'd you know I needed that today?

Wherever you are is where I want to be
Look around and tell me what you see
Everything, everything but me
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holdin' on to all our dreams
With everything, everything but me

Lookin' through photographs today
Different times always seem the same
Then I saw a picture of your smile
Something I haven't seen in a while
You know the one, the one you loved to hate
But every time it takes my breath away

Wherever you are is where I want to be
Look around and tell me what ya see
Everything, everything but me
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holdin' on to all our dreams
With everything, everything but me

Do you know how much it hurts to know
And leave it all behind, leave it all behind
I see you in my mind
'Cause you are right there all the time
Far away in another place
Give my soul just to see your face

Wherever you are is where I want to be
Look around and tell me what ya see
Everything, everything but me
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holdin' on to all our dreams, yeah
No matter how many miles stand in between
In my heart is where you'll be
Holdin' on to all our dreams
With everything, everything but me
With everything, everything but me

    Lyric CorrectionGreat song, however the third line is wrong

    Instead of "If I'd have known it meant my suitcase" it should be "Found a note hidden in my suitcase" ;)

    General Commentno matter how many miles stand in between
    in my heart is where you"ll be
    holdin' on to all our dreams

    with everything, everything but me

    these last word really important, because the person tells the reader that he is holding on with everything, but not himself. this phrase explain that the person is on a very-very long distance, he want to help anything, want to sacrifice anything he could, but he couldn't, because he wasn't there.

    General CommentIt's about a long distance relationship for sure. In this song the pain of being far away from the only one about is described. You can have everything present in your life but when your only one is missing it makes a big difference in a negative way.
    "Holding on to all our dreams": i think here, chris tried to explain the feeling of hope which gives the strength to long distance lovers.

    May God grant hope and strength to all people who are miles away from their loved ones.
