Everybody Knows

Album: Taking The Long Way (2006)
  • Tell me now, if you came sneaking up behind
    Would you know me and see behind the smile?
    I can change like colors on a wall
    Hoping no one else will find what lies beneath it all
    I think I hide it all so well

    [Chorus]
    Stepping out, everyone can see my face
    All the things I can't erase from my life
    Everybody knows
    Standing out so you won't forget my name
    That's the way we play this game of life
    Everybody knows

    Looking through the crowd
    I search for something else
    But every time I turn around
    I run into myself
    Here I stand
    Consumed with my surroundings
    Just another day
    Of everybody looking
    I swore they'd never see me cry
    You'll never see me cry

    [Chorus]

    You say I'll pay the price
    That's the chance that I'll take
    Though you may think I'm telling lies
    But I just call it getting by

    Stepping out, everyone can see my face
    All the things I can't erase from my life
    Everybody knows

    Standing out so you won't forget my name
    That's the way we play this game of life
    Everybody knows I am just barely getting by Writer/s: MARTHA MAGUIRE, NATALIE MAINES, EMILY ROBISON, GARY LOURIS
