Everything But Me Lyrics

far away in another place
i’d give my soul just to see her face
if i’d have known it meant my suitcase
of everything that you just couldn’t say
how’d you know i needed that today?

wherever you are is where i want to be
look around and...

    My interpretation of this song is that is a guy far away from home and just wants to get to his love ones

    This is honestly, the story of my life, the luckless lover, hopeless romantic, or simply Romeo, take your pick. It's a song about a guy who's in love with a girl, and it's unmistakeable (seriously, everyone knows but her!) to everyone else, but perhaps you haven't told her, in this case, I'd say Daughtry has told her - at least that's the feeling I get from the tone of the song. But anyway, she's gone, and he's lost without her. But whenever she was around she paid attention to everything - everyone - but me or him. It's kind of like she's in denial, or ignoring you in hope of ending your affection, or maybe even in complete ignorance. Either way, she's gone, and Daughtry wants to be with her. He'd give his soul to see her face, even if it meant leaving (whoever he's with or where he's at, I'm not sure) - thus the suite case. He's looking through photographs and sees her smile, and, if you know what that's like then you'll understand, emotions run deep and regret fills up your thoughts. He wants to be wherever she physically is, whether it be miles away or not, but she's in his heart all the time.

    And that is the way my life has gone so far...uhhhhh.....

    far away in another place
    i’d give my soul just to see her face
    if i’d have known it meant my suitcase
    of everything that you just couldn’t say
    how’d you know i needed that today?

    wherever you are is where i want to be
    look around and tell me what you see
    everything, everything but me
    no matter how many miles stand in between
    in my heart is where you’ll be
    holdin’ on to all our dreams
    with everything, everything but me

    lookin’ through photographs today
    different times always seem the same
    then i saw a picture of your smile
    something i haven’t seen in a while
    you know the one, the one you loved to hate
    but every time it takes my breath away

    wherever you are is where i want to be
    look around and tell me what ya see
    everything, everything but me
    no matter how many miles stand in between
    in my heart is where you’ll be
    holdin’ on to all our dreams
    with everything, everything but me

    do you know how much it hurts to know
    and leave it all behind, leave it all behind
    i see you in my mind
    ’cause you are right there all the time
    far away in another place
    give my soul just to see your face

    wherever you are is where i want to be
    look around and tell me what ya see
    everything, everything but me
    no matter how many miles stand in between
    in my heart is where you’ll be
    holdin’ on to all our dreams, yeah
    no matter how many miles stand in between
    in my heart is where you’ll be
    holdin’ on to all our dreams
    with everything, everything but me
    with everything, everything but me
