"Show Me" as written by Shirley Ann Manson, Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson and Steve W Marker....
You could hear long before you could dream
You could walk
You could run long before you could sing
You could talk
Think about all the things you never say
And spit them out

And show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me who you are
Show me
Show me now

It's not as easy as it seems
The world is big
The sea is deep
There is no rope
There is no line
We're specks of dust up in the sky
There is no space
There is no time
There's only you and what we leave behind

And show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me who you are
Show me
Show me now

And what we leave behind
And what we leave behind

And show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me what we leave behind
And what we leave behind
What we leave behind

Show me
What we leave behind
Show me
What we leave behind
Show me
What we leave behind
Show me
What we leave behind
Show me
What we leave behind

    My InterpretationIt seems to me she's encouraging someone to express himself : "spit them out", "show me who you are", though she admits it is "not as easy as it seems". Because it is far easier to walk, run, hear, talk... than to express yourself in an artistic way ("dream", "sing").

    It is about creativity and art : "there is no rope, there is no line", that is : inspiration needs an object, something to begin with. We are nothing ("specks of dust in the sky") but we can "leave [something] behind" with art.
