All I Want Is Everything

original song, All I Want Is EverythingBehind the Song

In 2009 I had moved back to California. There was some positive movement in a number of critical areas of my life. Music, writing, consulting, etc. But none of it was happening as fast as I would have liked. Isn’t that always the case.

Becky was still in Arizona. During a phone conversation I was frustrated about “things” not happening fast enough. Patience is not a virtue I’ve mastered. I was saying to her, “I just want everything. I want everything now!!”

Becky replied, “All I want is you.” (Everyone say, “aaahhhhhh”)

The next morning at 6:00AM I began texting her to wake her up. I had recorded an acoustic version of this song.



She said, Baby I must confess
I’m missing you, yea I’m a mess
I reach out for you and your not here
I call for you and your not there

I hear you saying that you just want everything
Don’t you know I want the same thing too
All I want is everything and baby that means
All I want is you

I want the sunlight on your face
To be your storm, your sea, your resting place
To kiss you awake, to kiss you to bed
and a brand new day to do it all again

I want passion that won’t ever end
To be your every lover and your one true friend
I want to fill your mind with fantasy
I want to chain you down, I want to set you free

I want to be your morning & be your night
Be there to make up after every fight
I want the best of you and I want your worst
I want to feed your hunger and quench your thirst

I want your 10 cent and 4-letter words
I want your rational and I want your absurd
I want love that burns hot to the touch
Yeah, I want everything, is that too much
