I'm the one with two left feet
Standing on a lonely street
I can't even walk a straight line

And every time you look at me
I'm spinning like an autumn leaf
Bound to hit bottom sometime

Where would I be without someone to save me
Someone who won't let me fall

[Chorus]
You are everything that I live for
Everything that I can't believe is happening
You're standing right in front of me
With arms wide open all I know is
Every day is filled with hope
'Cause you are everything that I breathe for
And I can't help but breathe you in, and breathe again
Feeling all this life within
Every single beat of my heart

I'm the one with big mistakes
Big regrets and bigger breaks
Than I'd ever care to confess

But you're the one who looks at me
And sees what I was meant to be
More than just a beautiful mess

Where would I be without someone to save me
Someone who won't let me fall

[Chorus]
You are everything that I live for
Everything that I can't believe is happening
You're standing right in front of me
With arms wide open all I know is
Every day is filled with hope
'Cause you are everything that I breathe for
And I can't help but breathe you in, and breathe again
Feeling all this life within
Every single beat of my heart

[Bridge]
You're everything good in my life
Everything honest and true
And all of those stars hanging up in the sky
Could never shine brighter than you

[Chorus]
You are everything that I live for
Everything that I can't believe is happening
You're standing right in front of me
With arms wide open all I know is
Every day is filled with hope
'Cause you are everything that I breathe for
And I can't help but breathe you in, and breathe again
Feeling all this life within
Every single beat of my heart

    Basically whats being said is, the person you love means so much to you. You really feel like they are so vital, they are whyyou live & breathe. They see you for more than what anyone else does, they accept you & love you for who you really are.

    He is my everything. God is everything that i live for, i just love h so much. And i never would be where i am today without him. And i am just so greatful! One thing i think we all need to remember though, is that we need to praise h in every storm. No matter what it is, or what is happening. We always need to remember to give god glory in everything.
