lyrics

I know and everyone knows
You break it, you buy
Someone's always responsible for it
I know and everyone knows
You better not cry
Pay the price now and you'll be rewarded
I know what everyone knows
But I'm just a human and I don't think I know

I thought, a thought, I thought, I forgot
Forgot to forget this girl I called up
I was young
You wouldn't have believed the weight of my tongue
I take a drive I say idle hands come alive
Stop kicking yourself about something 3 decades ago
A pretty girl honks, I'm driving too slow
Soon the day's blown
How did I let this...

I know and everyone knows
You get what you earn
Life's a game, now go on and win it
I know and everyone knows
You make your own bed
Who else is gonna lie in it?
I know what everyone knows
But I'm just a human and I don't think I know

Monday rise, a headache pressing my eyes
Four pills and a shot do nothing to chase it away
Off to work and I swore today was the day I would start
But errands can't stir my heart
I try to recall those choices I have to have made
Take the long way around and miss the parade
Guess the week is young
I must remember

I know and everyone knows
You break it, you buy
Someone's always responsible for it
I know and everyone knows
Go changing your mind
Don't hope this world will adore it
I know what everyone knows
But I'm only human and I don't think I know

And If I feel like a child
What if I can't say why I do what I do
When was the moment innocence passed
It must have flown so fast
And must we answer for that too

Have you heard
You get just what you deserve
I'm so tired of hearing there's only yourself you can blame
Get up off the mat, get back in the game
Everybody cries, so don't believe it

I know and everyone knows
You won what you've won
now be ready to fight just to keep it
I know and everyone knows
You have too much fun
Somebody will suffer a little bit
I know and everyone knows
You break it you buy it
Someone's always responsible for it

I know and everyone knows
Go changing your mind
Don't hope this world will adore it
I know and everyone knows
Yes everyone knows
You get what you get
Pay the price of don't be rewarded
I know and everyone knows
But I'm just a human and I don't think we know

about

Kicklighter Tallahassee, Florida

I'm Everett Young, the founder of Kicklighter.

I'm 48 and picked up guitar 7 years ago, after finishing a PhD in political psychology and not getting the tenure-track academic job I thought I wanted.

My latest album is 2.5 years in the making.

My next step is to pursue composing for the orchestra. When or whether I'll return to pop music, I don't know. Thanks so much for listening!
