Capo 2nd fret

Standard (EADGBE)

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 oh so well



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

They’d never see me cry



You say I’ll pay the price

That’s a chance that I’ll take

Though you may think I’m telling lies

But I just call it getting by



Everybody knows (everybody knows)

I’m just barely getting by (everybody knows)
