[Originally by Michelle Branch]

Turn it inside out so I can see
The part of you that's drifting over me
'Cause when I look you're, you're never there
But when I sleep you're, you're everywhere
You're everywhere

Tell me how I got this far
Tell me why you're here and who you are
'Cause every time I look
You're never there
And every time I sleep
You're always there

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone

I recognize the way you make me feel
It's hard to think that
You might not be real
I sense it now, the water's getting deep
I try to wash the pain away from me
Away from me

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
I'm not alone

And when I touch your hand
It's then I understand
The beauty that's within
It's now that we begin
You always light my way
There never comes a day
No matter where I go
I always feel you so

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
You're everywhere to me
And when I catch my breath
It's you I breathe
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone

You're in everyone I see
So tell me
Do you see me?

    i personally think that it could also be about unrequited (one-sided) love. he sees her everywhere and in everyone and everything, but she doesn't seem to notice him the same way - "Do you see me?"

    it doesn't literally mean that he/she is not always around. It may mean that the one the singer loves is simply far away.

    this song was popularized by Michelle branch. they said it's about a guy/girl that the singer liked so much. but i think it's about the almighty one. "'Cause when I look you're, you're never there". as we all know we can't see the Almighty one down here... "You always light my way There never comes a day No matter where I go I always feel you so"
