Vertical Horizon's song "Everything You Want" is the second single from the band's third studio album Everything You Want. Released in 2000, the single reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 after a 26-week climb on July 15, 2000.
Lead vocalist Matt Scannell has cited "Everything You Want" as a great example of honest songwriting and added, "I still experience joy singing it because I know it came from a true place." The song's main theme deals with unrequited love.
