Everybody Knows You

All those times my fragile heart was shattered like a glass
Always on my side no questions asked
Seems you never needed to forgive my thoughtless acts
A half a million sins and still you didn’t mind
Cause you knew how to leave it all behind

The simple voice of reason when I’m crazy in my head DRUMS
You’re the reason I’m the way I am
Talking to you now so still and quiet in that bed
You look me in the eyes and I wonder what you find
Do you want to leave it all behind?

Everybody knows you
Everybody loves the way you smile
Everything you showed me
Sneaking up, reminding me
That you are standing by

Even at a time when you’re confused about the world
When something bright is tempting you to go
You’re stubborn and you’re lovely, you’re like a little girl
Torn between two lovers and can’t make up her mind
In little ways you’re leaving it behind

All the gifts I cherish must have started out with you
The jar you filled with flowers from our field
I see the way she tilts her head, the colour of her eyes
I see how much you love us and we all know love is blind
Cause we can’t see you leaving us behind

Everybody knows you
Everybody loves the way you smile
Everything you showed me
Sneaking up, reminding me
That you are standing by
‘Cause everybody knows you
