There's Everything Else And Then There's You

There’s Everything Else, And Then There’s You

it used to be much easier stuck inside this shell
all i had was you
and all you had was me
now i can’t control the weakness to look across the room
i know that you’re not there
it’s just muscle memory 

but i want you to know that i understand
life had a different plan for you
and i could have become the line in the sand
but i would never make you choose 

all across the universe to that bedroom, that first kiss
when your skin was a cold comfort
for my virgin hands to lay
just the remnants of a celebration in a distorted memory
as i walk the same old road i walk 
everyday

and i want you to know that there’s always a space
where you used fit so well
and i promise that if you never return 
that’s the place your ghost will dwell

now i know it’s time
but somehow it all just flew away
tell Matthew i hope he never lost faith 
back when you were mine
somehow you up and disappeared 
back somewhere in time and nowhere in space
now when the day is through 
and nothing’s quiet and calm
there’s everything else
and then there’s you

i imagine fairytales on the streets of NYC
the people and their voices fill the busy city
you and all your sentiments are all that i can see
you’re wearing New York City and you look so pretty

i’ve been thinking about leaving here someday
to find another love to keep
but everything else seems cheap compared 
to the heartache i do reap

now i know it’s time
but i just do not have the guts
tell Matthew i hope he doesn’t blame me
back when you were mine
somehow you up and disappeared 
the world waited for you to come back to me
now when the day is through 
i ignore the alarms 
‘cause there’s everything else
and then there’s you
there is everything else
and then there’s you
