Everything
05/02/13 - Inspired by the title of a song Ryan Nolan played in Bloomington, and the snark of my old school chum Penny Reid.

Everything else by Dan Biemer

This is a cover of a song called Everything
When you’ve heard it, you can say you’ve heard Everything
When I’m done, then I can say I’ve done Everything
Though Everything has all been done before

If you’re wondering if you can hear Everything
You’re in luck because I think I know Everything
So if you look at me and say you want Everything
I’ll look right back and give you Everything

Was it Everything you hoped for?
Was it Everything you need?
When it’s over I’ll have given you Everything

This is the story of a song called Everything
The guy that wrote it is the guy that wrote Everything
He went to Vegas, I’m afraid he lost Everything
And then his wife uncovered Everything

She called her lawyer up and she got half of Everything
But they’re happy now I guess that covers Everything
So if your server asks you “How was Everything?”
I hope you’ll say that Everything was fine

Was it Everything you hoped for?
Was it Everything you need?
When it’s over I’ll have given you Everything

Did you say that you would rather hear Nothing?
Well I can’t play Nothing ’cause I don’t know Nothing
But if you walk away and leave me with Nothing
I’ll learn Nothing ’til I see your face again

And on that day then I will play you Nothing
If you like it I’ll be like “Aw shucks it was Nothing”
If you don’t I’ll cry boo hoo but there’s Nothing left to do
Because Everything has all been done before

Was it Nothing you expected?
Was it Nothing like you dreamed?
You wanted Nothing but I’ve given you Everything
