Vertical Horizon – Everything you want

Somewhere there’s speaking, it’s already coming in

Oh and it’s rising in the back of your mind

You never could get it unless you were fed it

Now you’re here, and you don’t know why

But under skinned knees and the skid marks

Past the places where you used to learn

You howl and listen, listen and wait for

The echoes of angels who won’t return

He’s everything you want, he’s everything you need

He’s everything inside of you that you wish you could be

He says all the right things at exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you, and you don’t know why

You’re waiting for someone to put you together

You’re waiting for someone to push you away

There’s always another wound to discover

There’s always something more you wish he’d say

He’s everything you want, he’s everything you need

He’s everything inside of you that you wish you could be

He says all the right things at exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you, and you don’t know why

But you’ll just sit tight and watch it unwind

It’s only what you’re asking for

And you’ll be just fine with all of your time

It’s only what you’re waiting for

Out of the island and into the highway

Past the places where you might have turned

You never did notice, but you still hide away

Anger of angels who won’t return

He’s everything you want, he’s everything you need

He’s everything inside of you that you wish you could be

He says all the right things at exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you, and you don’t know why

I am everything you want, I am everything you need

I am everything inside of you that you wish you could be

I say all the right things at exactly the right time

But I mean nothing to you, and I don’t know why

And I don’t know why

Why, why

I don’t know
