Everybody Lost Somebody

  • The pain of waiting alone at the corner
    Trying to get myself back home
    I gotta get myself back home soon
    I gotta get myself back home soon

    I guess it's true
    The only reason that I called you last night
    Is the reason I been standing on a wire
    It's this dream I keep having where I'm begging

    Just to give myself a break (hey)
    But there's nothing I wouldn't do to wake up and remember it
    I wanna wake up and remember
    So take my clothes, that's better

    I think pain is waiting alone at the corner
    Tryna get myself back home, yeah
    Looking like everybody
    Knowing everybody lost somebody
    I'm standing here in the cold and
    I gotta get myself back home soon
    Looking like everybody
    Knowing everybody lost somebody
    Everybody lost somebody
    Everybody lost somebody

    I waited 'til the night was over
    Cursed the sun for coming up all over
    Cashed the checks I had, I didn't own
    Standing on the corner, God I wonder when

    I'll give myself a break (hey)
    But there's nothing I wouldn't do to settle up with Heaven
    And today I gotta settle in Heaven
    Take my clothes, I'm begging

    I think pain is waiting alone at the corner
    Tryna get myself back home, yeah
    Looking like everybody
    Knowing everybody lost somebody
    I'm standing here in the cold and
    I gotta get myself back home soon
    Looking like everybody
    Knowing everybody lost somebody

    I'm lost
    I know that I'm lost
    Lost in a world without you
    I know that I'm lost
    I know that I'm lost
    Lost in a world without you
    And there's a reason I wake up alone in strange places
    A reason I see myself in a million faces
    A reason I can't stop it all from changing
    So come on, motherfucker, you survive

    You gotta give yourself a break (hey)
    But there's nothing I wouldn't do to settle up with Heaven
    It's a debt I gotta settle in Heaven
    Take my clothes, I'm begging

    Everybody lost somebody
    Everybody lost somebody
    Everybody lost somebody
    Everybody lost somebody

    I gotta get myself back home soon
    I gotta get myself back home soonWriter/s: Evan Smith, Jack Antonoff
