Somewhere there's speaking It's already coming in
Oh and it's rising at the back of your mind
You never could get it Unless you were fed it
Now you're here and you don't know why

But under skinned knees and the skid marks Past the places where you used to learn You howl and listen Listen and wait for the Echoes of angels who won't return 
He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why

You're waiting for someone To put you together You're waiting for someone to push you away
There's always another wound to discover There's always something more you wish he'd say

He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why

But you'll just sit tight And watch it unwind It's only what you're asking for
And you'll be just fine
With all of your time
It's only what you're waiting for

Out of the island Into the highway Past the places where you might have turned You never did notice But you still hide away
The anger of angels who won't return 
He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why

I am everything you want
I am everything you need
I am everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
I say all the right things
At exactly the right time
But I mean nothing to you and I don't know why
And I don't know why
Why
I don't know
