John Legend – Everybody Knows lyrics

It gets harder every day, but I can't seem to shake the pain
I'm trying to find the words to say, please stay
It's written all over my face, I can't
Function the same when you're not here
I'm calling your name and no one's there
And I hope one day you'll see nobody has it easy,
I still can't believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.
'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I don't care what the people say
They're probably lonely anyway
Baby don't fill up your head with he-said, she-said
It seems like you just don't know
The radio's on, you tuning me out,
I'm trying to speak, you're turning me down
And I know one day you'll see nobody has it easy,
I still can't believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.
'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Oh I wish you'd understand
Oh, just an ordinary man
Listen we'd have known
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows
And I know one day you'll see, nobody has it easy
I still can't believe you found somebody new
I wish you the best, I guess.

'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

    When it comes to living life and finding love no one reli knows what to expect all we know is that you have to try again. You have to know what is worth fighting for and what's not everybody knws but nobody reli knws. Everybody knws what love is and what they want but nobody reli knws how to make it work we just knw you have to work for it to.

    It tells about a person that can't move on from a recent relationship. Pain and yearning continues to follow him. When that person found out that his girlfriend found somebody new, he felt his heart broken, and disbelief that she moved on that quickly. Even tough it hurts him, he still wishes her the best. What people don't know is. It's difficult to take the pain when you know that you lost someone you love.
