I bet you're wonderin' where I've been
What town I'm calling home for now
And just how long I'll be there before I turn around

Truth is I've finally found the place
Where I can start to plant some roots
It's about as close to being perfect, it's got everything but you

There's a pathway to the ocean, a salty breeze blowing
And this old man down the street makes damn good wine
It's got stars that shine like diamonds on the black canvas behind 'em
And there's a sun out here that seems to always shine
And I've never seen water quite so blue
It's got everything but you

There's a taco stand right down the corner
Serves the best cold draft beer
Sometimes I order up a round, pretend you're right here

And a reggae band plays every Friday
We drink and dance into the night
Most folks 'round here think I'm a local and
And I'd say that that's about right, yeah, that's about right

There's a pathway to the ocean, a salty breeze blowing
And this old man down the street makes damn good wine
It's got stars that shine like diamonds on the black canvas behind 'em
And there's a sun out here that seems to always shine
And I've never seen water quite so blue
It's got everything but you

And that's everything to me
You, the only thing I need, yeah

There's a pathway to the ocean, a salty breeze blowing
And this old man down the street makes damn good wine
And I've never seen water quite so blue
No, I ain't never seen water quite so blue
It's got everything but you, yeah

Song facts

"I lived in Hawaii for awhile and I lived on the East Coast before that. I got the idea for 'Everything But You' when I was living in Hawaii. My best buddy, P.J. Brown, and I would camp out at waterfalls and these amazing beaches and be the only ones there. I would think to myself how when you were there as long as we were that it was almost a sad thing. You were in these amazing spots, but no matter how beautiful it is around you, unless you've got people with you that you care about, it amounts to nothing. It was a lonely kind of feeling. I have bounced around a lot since I was 17 and I've been in some cool places, but I've been on my own a lot. I like it like that, but again, it can become a lonely thing if you don't have people you care about around you. We were created to share those things with people." - Kip Moore
