Vertical Horizon, "Everything You Want"

수록앨범 : Everything You Want (1999)

 

이 곡 때문에 크리스티나 아귈레라의 I Turn To You가 싱글 판매량 1위를 하고도 빌보드 싱글차트 1위를 못했었다.
하지만 역시 빌보드 1위는 어중이 떠중이 곡이나 하는 건 아님을 느끼게 했던 노래다.
버티컬 호라이즌에 대해서는 거의 아는 것이 없고, 그저 록으로는 아직까진 유일하게 FC 1위를 했다는 것 정도 밖에는...
언제 들어도 질리지가 않는 곡이다. 그냥 들어 보시라.

Everything You Want



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

  Chorus
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

  Chorus

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

  Chorus

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
