All he needs is everyone I've been
And all she needs is everywhere I've seen
All they need
 Anything 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
Oh 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...
It 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 believed  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 of 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

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