"Every Little Thing" as written by Rupert Lloyd Gayle, Adam Alexander, Christopher Michael Perry and Paula Macneil....
Let me in
To see you in the morning light
To get me on and all along the tears they come
See all come
I want you to believe in life
But I get the strangest feeling that you've gone away
Will you find out who you are too late to change
I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted
All the time
I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted
All the time
Some times

Lift me up
Just lift me up don't make a sound
And let me hold you up before you hit the Ground
See all come
You say your all right
But I get the strangest feeling
That you've gone away--you've gone away
And will you find out who you are too late to change?

I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted
All the time
I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted
All the time
Some times

Don't give me up
Don't give me up tonight
Or soon nothing will be right at all
Salvation
Will you find out who you are too late to change?

I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted

    General Commentthis song is so emotional(vocals-wise)... I love how disconnected and desperate he sounds.

    it's all about trying to reach someone who's already too far away, and only getting farther away by the minute. it's so horrible wanting to help someone or at least touch them in some way, but knowing you can't... every time I listen to this song, I think of the person who introduced me to this song in the first place, and unfortunately it's who the subject of the song makes me think of.


    anyway, it's a great song, no matter how depressing it is. =P

    all the time

    i agree with delial, to me it's someone tryign to reach someone who's so far away... but yet so close... i live in nj right across the skyline and the person i think of lives in ny, and it kills me every time i look at the ny skyline.

    General Commentthis song is absolutely amazing. to me, it's like someone thinks they're not good enough & you're saying "i wish i could be everything you wanted to show you you ARE good enough." i love this song! especially how he sings "i want you to believe in life"

    General CommentI'm so diggin' this song. For me, it very much speaks about unrequited love, and yet still being hopeful in the end.

    This song is definitely recommended for the hopeful romantics out there!
