"Everything" as written by and Benjamin John Howard....
The birds still sing outside these
These windows where we sat together
Like nothing ever happened here oh
The white house on the hill
And black clouds the weather
And the church spire, over the river
She still sits there warmin' the evening glow

But you don't care about
These scenes I treasure
About these wore swimmers
I know, I know
Seems everything around here
Stays like stone
Seems it's about time darling
About time we let this all go

'Cause everything will start again anew
'Cause everything just goes away my friend
And every king knows it to be true
And every kingdom must one day come to an end

And the sun vanished, may be long gone
And all these memories we've found
But she'll be here when it's all done
When our bodies laying beneath the ground
She knows everything that goes around
Comes, comes around here
She knows everything that stays here somehow
Guess we'd all begin

Everything will start again anew
'Cause everything just goes away my friend
And every king knows it to be true
And every kingdom must one day come to an end

    General CommentThe birds still sing outside these
    These windows
    Where we sat together
    Like nothing ever happened here oh
    The white house on the hill
    And black clouds the weather
    And the church spire, over the river
    She still sits there
    Warmin' the evening glow
    But you don't care about
    These scenes I treasure
    About these wore swimmers
    I know, I know
    Seems everything around here
    Stays like stone
    Seems it's about time darling
    About time we let this all go

    Cause everything will start again anew
    Cause everything just goes away my friend
    And every king knows it to be true
    And every kingdom must one day come to an end

    And the sun vanished, may be long gone
    And all these memories we've found
    But she'll be here
    When it's all done
    When our bodies laying beneath the ground
    She knows everything that goes around
    Comes, comes around here
    She knows everything that stays here somehow
    Guess we'd all begin

    Everything will start again anew
    Cause everything just goes away my friend
    And every king knows it to be true
    And every kingdom must one day come to an end

    My InterpretationFor me this song is about nature overriding and surviving us all through a process of regeneration. Whilst everything within our heads stays the same, nature is forever changing and renewing things, even after we're long gone.

    My InterpretationI hear this song and think of a love lost. She has died and he is sitting on the porch remembering their life together and has accepted that his kingdom was only meant to last for a time. He knows she never appreciated the view from where he sits as much as he does, but in his grief, the place where they used to sit is a piece of her memory that he feels close to in this moment. There is a warmth in this song that comforts my soul.

    General CommentI feel like this song is about his first love that he met in Devon hence the west winds reference, he has to leave Devon and therefore his love. It's a song about leaving love and leaving someone you need but that you have to leave. Sad but necessary

    My Interpretationthe way i see this song is that a girl has just left him and he's left sitting in his house and everything around him is the same except the fact that she isnt there, he feels like the world is forcing him to move on because no it feels like it never happened. i think this whole song is basically a break-up song with a bit of a twist

    My Interpretationalways reminds me of game of thrones.
    and that's what it sounds..

    This will all end.. it doesn't really matter what you do, everything comes to an end.
    But on the end of the day you gotta do what you gotta do...and go by what you believe
