Everybody Knows

Album: Primal Heart (2017)
  • Money moans calls you home
    Vacant eyes they won't tell a soul
    You fooled me once, now I'm twice as old
    See, I ain't gonna lie but I ain't gonna phone on you
    No, I ain't gonna try to forget what I've gone through

    Got a little box yeah
    I'm gonna open
    Take your promises
    'Cause they've all been broken

    Everybody knows about what you do
    Everybody saw and sold the truth
    I was young and gullible
    But baby I grew
    Now the whole world's watching you

    Hands to the bone
    Hands to the heart
    Bodies alone
    Hide in the dark
    Is it a fight worth fighting? Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    See, I ain't gonna lie
    But I ain't gonna hold back
    Or try to deny, you turned a damn good heart black

    I got a little box yeah
    I'm gonna take back
    Don't make your promises
    'Cause I'm finished with all that

    Everybody knows about what you do
    Everybody saw and sold the truth
    I was young and gullible
    But baby I grew
    And now the whole world's watching you
    Everybody knows about what you do
    Everybody saw and sold the truth
    I was young and gullible
    But baby I grew
    And now the whole world's watching you

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
