Day 79: “Everything I Am” – Vertical Horizon


Today song became successful pretty much everywhere, with the exception of Italy.

Born on 1991, Vertical Horizon released 5 albums, the last one on 2009. According to the official website, the meaning of the name is related to the attempt the band made to reach the artistically-creative high road, to make a superior music: “Perhaps the most significant key to Vertical Horizon’s success today is the freedom they have from the constraints of a major recording label. Vertical Horizon works at a tempo that fuels the creative process” .

“Everything I am” tells about not returned love. The lyrics comes from a real event, as told by Scannell in an interview: “”…I was in love with this girl, and she was just a broken person. She kept turning to everyone except me for love and acceptance, and I wanted so much to help her. I wanted to be the one to give her everything she wanted, but I couldn’t. She just couldn’t accept it from me, and it was that pain, that led me to creating the song.”

Matthew Scannel and Keith Kane were the real souls and minds of the project, until Kane decided to dedicate himself to his solo album promotion. Still the band had very interesting collaboration, including the participation of Richard Marx and Neil Perth of Rush on the last album released, Burning the Days (2009).

While waiting to discover what will be the future of the band, with the replacement of Kane with Eric Holden, let’s listen today’s song!

Everything You Want – Lyrics

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

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

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
I don’t know
