The disarming truth about married life is that nothing is certain, but everything is possible, if we take every day as an opportunity to put someone else's needs before our own.

Sam McLeod is a songwriter and performer living in Nashville, Tennessee. "You Me & Everything" was written a few years ago for a close friend in Australia and his fiancée, which Sam performed at their wedding. This beautiful melodic dreamscape outlines the anticipation, expectation, disappointment, and reassurance of marriage, and the broad scope of what a loving relationship can endure and thrive in.

"You Me & Everything" brings together various elements from the spectrum of popular music with a core aesthetic that borrows from electro and folk while Sam's powerful tenor voice and impassioned embellishments add a hint of modern soul. A gorgeous and endearing music video presents this romantic triumph against a backdrop of fluid contemporary dance, contrasting themes of detachment and introspection with the bliss of physical union. Sam has been married for 10 years and this crucial connection with the subject matter adds depth and complexity to an exploration of intimacy and commitment. "You Me & Everything" encapsulates the wonder and unpredictability of a forever relationship with phenomenal performances from dancers Terin Christopher and Alexia McEver — as we learn that love can be we whatever we make of it. The disarming truth about married life is that nothing is certain, but everything is possible, if we take every day as an opportunity to put someone else's needs before our own.

I follow suit
I take your hand discreetly
You in your dress
Ribbons and curls completely

You me everything
Falls into its place so let's have our dance

Breathing in a dream
Of you and me and everything
You know where to start
Fall into my arms

I'll help your lies
Lead the divide & step in
You hold up our head
Ransom our bed discreetly

It's you and I
All my life
All my love
All my light
