Everybody Knows

Side 2, Track 3

lyrics

Her sense took him by surprise
All the sudden he forgot her eyes
Then he managed to tone it down
Couldn’t help picturing how

The world spins faster ‘cause it’s in reverse
And that’s why it doesn’t make much sense
And the end is closer than we might assume
He had no clue

But everybody knows
When lovers get together
They can feel when it’s real
That is clear
And everybody knows
‘Cause they are all experts
In everything they cannot understand

He was walking down a lonesome street
With no one but himself to meet
As he realized he had forgotten
Where he was living

And the world spins faster ‘cause it’s in reverse
While love doesn’t make much sense
And death is closer than we might assume
Yes, it’s all true

‘Cause everybody knows
When people get desperate
And they cling to a fling
For too long
And everybody knows
‘Cause they are all experts
Only thing they fail to see is when it all breaks
Only thing they fail to see are their own mistakes

He was feeling better
Thought he had some reason left
Walking through the shadows
Music played
And the skies had cleared
Once again he’d tricked himself
Into something almost
Approximate

And everybody knew
When they found his body
That the man had no plan and he had no clue
And his life had been in vain
All wasted youth
There was nothing anyone could say
Or even do
And the man had no plan and he had no clue
And his life had been in vain
All wasted youth
There was nothing anyone could say
Or even do
Or even do
