All I Need Lyrics

All I need, all all I need,
All I need, all all I need,
All I need, all all I need...

It's early in the morning,
I'm laughing at the sun.
My mirror disappoints me.
Am I the only one?

All I need, all all I need,
All I need, all all I...

    My mirror disappoints me. That's the whole thing. The song is about him finding himself, being happy with himself. There is no reference to another person in the song. It's all a conversation with himself in the mirror. But that doesn't sell. So it's packaged as a love song.

    It's about having a relationship with God

    This is about the one that got away. If you look at the album cover dedication from his former band Under the Influence of Giants, he has a really sweet dedication to his former girlfrieND. He wrote this right after they broke up.

    It means that all he wants is his partner/friend.

    The part that confuses me is the "all i need is you inside of me" toward the ending of the song in the background.

    This song is about whatever you want it to be about.

    I think this song is simply about someone who sees that he is not perfect and neither is life, but in the end to make him happy all he needs is the one he loves. it's cute. i like it

    hes singing about him waking up after a break up and not happy with it. 'my mirror disappoints me' meaning he doesn't see his valued other there with him and wonders if they feel the same.
    all he wants is for them to be happy.
    'i think i'm getting closer, but the scenery the same' possibly means we he was trying to please them nothing was getting better.
    he wonders if its his fault and blames himself.
    this is basically '500 days of summer' in a song, a great one!
