EVERYTHING FOR YOU

I've arrived.. Fancy cars, the stage and lights Thousands at concerts every night Girls swoon and scream my name Giving autographs, growing fame I survived.. Now I've arrived And I have everything.. Everything but you So many love my music They dance and party to the beat Memorize the lyrics, get up on their feet Yeah, I can woo the feminine masses These boys, I could give them classes I survived.. Now I've arrived And I have everything.. Everything but you I'm singing a familiar love song These girls wish the words were true They close their eyes and dream of me I close mine.. and dream of you. All I see is you! Girl, I'd trade everything Everything for you Oh, I'd trade everything Wish I could trade everything Trade everything.. Everything for you ~Lyric Man Note: This is a write about a guy who has it all, except the one thing he really wants and needs. Everyone thinks they'd like to be in his shoes and he's thinking, he'd like to be barefoot with the girl he can't have. Why he can't have her is purposely up for Interpretation. The write is based on a friend's reality!

Doesn't matter what fame or success we've achieved, or what material possessions we have, if we can't share life with the one we love. Awesome lyrics.

When you are looking for love, it may not find you. However, when you are not looking, that is when it finds you. "Wish I could trade everything. Trade everything.. Everything for you" Yes, that is love. Your thoughts curl around me. ~ Brandy

- Owning ... is no pleasure in life ... although we must have money to survive ... but love can not be bought (something everyone knows) - I'd rather go barefoot :) - I do not feel sorry for "your friend" ... he can definitely make another choice in life :) - Excellent written, L.M. - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Wonderful write. Life is so interesting that way. Having everything except the one thing or person that we really yearn for. Sounds like lyrics to a great song:)

And it can be so, with ALL of life. A wonderful teaching-song. (O, I did enjoy your INDEPENDENCE day poem as well, but failed to comment). Forgiven? shalom, shalom
