From the album Erratic Markers

JJR: lyrics/vocals, rhythm guitars, bass, piano

Published By Lords Of Rock & Sons (ASCAP) 2016.

GFC – This track sprung fully-formed from JJR, as Athena from the head of Zeus. I added a few more splash cymbals (it's what I do, yo) but it is, I think, much the tight little pop ditty that JJR imagined. I hear some vintage Cheap Trick in it... and that's a good thing. 

JJR – “All You Do (Is Everything)” is basically two song ideas I had for our first recording session for Erratic Markers combined into a single tune. Literally as CCL and GFC were meddling with mics, cymbals, and pedals mere steps from my Les Paul and me, the 2 for 1 idea came to me and we laid down basic tracks later that same day. Lyrically, the song is about my wife Jessica who like all of us, can be too hard on herself. I wanted to give her a song for those moments when she thinks “I haven’t done enough.” It is important for her know that the little things she does, which she might not think amount to much, are actually everything to me. This felt like a much more touching sentiment than the original placeholder lyrics about loving her more than Garfield loves lasagna. No lie.

CCL – A heart on the sleeve-ish affair, no need to embellish further. But there was a unique exchange near the end of recording: 

    JJR:   "Well, that’s a wrap."
    CCL:  "Indeed. Strong work. And fun fact, this is the only track with no CCL on it."
    JJR:    "What? Unacceptable. Play something."
    CCL:  "All righty."

And thus was born the humble chorus guitar part. Didn’t screw things up too much.

Lyrics

All You Do is Everything 
  
Feeding off the energy 
Of the apology 
All’s forgiven 
Let’s start living again 
This time of year 
Things seem like life or death 
Just because we can see our breath 
But buyer beware 
Of the hot air 
  
‘Cause what I found 
Driving around 
You’re everything 
You’re everything 
  
All that I’ve become 
All that I’ve run from 
All you ever do 
All you ever say 
All you never take 
Is everything 
  
I don’t expect you to change the world 
You can just be my sensitive girl 
Don’t go to the grave 
With my mistakes 
I swear this year 
I’m righting more wrongs 
Than I am writing songs 
But buyer beware 
Of the hot air 
  
‘Cause what I found 
Driving around 
You’re everything 
You’re everything 
  
All that I’ve become 
All that I’ve run from 
All you ever do 
All you ever say 
All you never take 
Is everything 
  
You’re everything 
All that I’ve become 
All that I’ve run from 
You’re everything 
All you ever do 
All you ever say 
All you never take 
Means everything
