All he needs is everyone I've been
And all she needs is everywhere I've seen
All they need, everything I've touched
And all you need is everything I've loved

Everything I've heard, everything I've learned
Everything I've tried
Everything I've held, everything I've felt
Everything I've lost, everything I've cried

Until my whole head shrieks with grinding my teeth
Struggling to find a single word I can keep
Any kind of truth, any kind of hope
Just any kind of word that doesn't make me choke

But I keep saying I will and I won't
I keep saying I do and I don't
I keep saying I feel, but there is nothing to feel
Just a strange kind of nothing where it used to be me
Used to be me, used to be me

All he needs from me is everyone I've ever missed
And all she needs from me, everyone I've ever kissed
All they need from me, anything I've ever sung
Yeah and all you need from me is everything I've ever said

Everything I've ever done, everything I've ever made
Everything I've ever prayed, everything I've ever knew
Everything I've ever touched, everything I've ever loved
Everything I've ever thought, everything I've ever dreamed

Until my whole head screams with grinding my teeth
Desperate to find a single word I can keep
Any kind of faith, any kind of fix
Oh just any kind of word that doesn't make me sick

And I keep saying I will but I won't
I keep saying I do but I don't
And I keep saying I feel, but there is nothing to feel
Just this strange kind is nothing where it used to be me

Anything and everything, all that you need get it for free
Anything and everything, all that you need get it from me
Anything and everything, all that you need get it for free
Anything and everything, all that you need get it from me

Get it from me
Get it from me
Get it from me
