Everything We Had Lyrics - The Academy Is...

Review The Song (28)



You were the only face I'd ever known.
I was the light from the lamp on the floor,
and only as bright as you wanted me to be.
But I am no gentleman, I can be a prick,
and I do regret more than I admit.
You have been followed back to the same place
I sat with you drink for drink.
Take the pain out of love, and then love won't exist.

Everything we had, everything we had,
everything we had, everything we had
Is no longer there.

It was the only place I'd ever known.
Turned off the light on my way out the door.
I will be watching wherever you go,
through the eyes of a fly on the wall.
You have been followed back to the same place
I sat with you drink for drink.
Take the pain out of love and then love won't exist.

Everything we had, everything we had,
everything we had, everything we had
Is no longer there, longer there.

Well, you saw for yourself, the way it played out.
For you, I am blinded.
For you, I am blinded, for you.

I am no gentleman, I can be a prick.
And I do regret more than I admit.
You have been followed back to the same place
I sat with you drink for drink.
Take the pain out of love, and then love won't exist.

Everything we had, everything we had,
(you have been followed, you have been followed.)
everything we had, everything we had.
(you have been followed, you have been followed.)
Everything we had, everything we had,
(you have been followed, you have been followed.)
everything we had...

I'll be with you wherever you go,
through the eyes of a fly on the wall.

i love this song | Reviewer: anonymous | 3/6/10

damm!!!!! what a song i love the lyrics they are amazing ......really they caught my attention it made me relize how i feel without my exboyfriend..... really this song it's going to be a legend for me



i miss the old you. | Reviewer: Kirsten | 12/15/09

This song has helped me from a breakup with the first guy I ever loved and still love. My heart aches every night and this song so speaks how I feel, in everything we had is no longer there.
:( We had a really great relationship! And it ended like for no reason really. So confusing. But I believe the line 'take the pain out of love and then love won't exist' to be more true than most other things I've heard. It helps me realize that the pain is my reminder of the love I have and always will of him.



i <3 william beckett :) | Reviewer: rachel. | 11/18/09

i cannot listen to this song loud enough :)
this is a purely amazing song; just like all of their other songs.
this song has a deep meaning. and the lyrics are great. and i think they have a special meaning to everyone and everyone can relate to this song in different ways.
i think that's the best kind of song.
i cannot get enough of this band.
and william beckett is undescribable.
the academy is...is....amazing! :)



Geeezzz | Reviewer: Lauro | 10/23/09

I love this song it's so philosphical "take the pain out of love and love won't exist" even if you are caused to feel pain and you are willing to return to the person because of the love you have for them is very fucking deep I've gone throught that and it was infuriating how couldve I let that happen but the love sees past it all.



Everything we had..... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/28/09

Wow everyone. I think this song is amazing as well=) it describes my situation perfectly. It makes me think of someone that I still care about, still miss, despite what he did. Especially the lines "and i do regret more than i admit" this is so true. I regret so much in the relationship i was in. just all the silly things that were such a big deal for me. And how he was so patient. He was my first love. And now he's gone. This song makes me cry. <='( even just the title "Everything we had" says it all. I miss everything we had. But now I have to "Turn off the light on my way out the door" Even though I can't move on, I have to move out of the way to let him move on. And the lyrics "For you I am blinded" Are probably the most touching of all. I am blinded for him. I love this song:')



Letting go | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/3/09

Its such an amazing song, and such an amazing band. This song starts this pain in the middle of my chest. Its so sad, and so true. I had to let go of the love of my life, because it was the right thing to do for both of us. Im still and will always love him. I really feel like Im his fly on the wall, only being as bright as he wants me to be, Il watch him through the eyes of a fly wherever he goes. I am SOO connected to the line where he sings "I am no gentleman, I can be a prick, and I do regret more than I admit", cuz sometimes I have been like that, and I do have alot of regrets about the way I acted sometimes. But love is sometimes about letting go, just like I feel the song means, that he had to turn out the light on his way out, and just be as bright as she wanted him to be.



ilts | Reviewer: Adam | 9/23/08

This song came out the day after my breakup with her and I instantly connected. It's weird that I love this song so much yet when I make a playlist this one has to be off it due to the fact that when I cry I prefer it to be not in public-Adam




omgsh | Reviewer: panque | 8/26/08

people, stop arguing about the meaning of this song, i mean.. everybody has a different opinion & i think everyone has the right to express it.. but i think what really matters is the message it gives you, not to other people..maybe for you it's about his exgf or maybe about his friend,, who cares.. what matters is the meaning it has for you
amazing song really.. amazing band..



beautiful | Reviewer: anonymous | 4/15/08

my ex sent me this, he told me this is how he felt about me when we were together and he still does. i listen to it every night<3 every line says something meaninful, its hard to find that these days.



the academy is... | Reviewer: Lola | 3/19/08

This song is truly amazing.
It makes me think about my relationship, and how much it means to me. The lyrics are purely amazing and touching, along with the melodies. TAI... did an amazing job, once again. I first listened to it when my and my boy were having an arguement, and it immediately changed me state of mind. It showed me how much my relationship means to me, and I'm grateful for that. It helped me through an arguement, and now me and my boy are fine. The message it sends is amazing, and they did a great job portraying it. "I'm with you wherever you go, through the eyes of a fly on the wall" is one of the lyrics that caught my attention a bit more than the others, but overall, the song is amazing. It made me realize how I would feel without my relationship, and gave me a new perspective.
Thank you, The Academy Is... <3
