Dixie Chicks listen  "Everybody Knows" by Dixie Chicks (Emily Robinson/Martie Maguire/Natalie Maines/Gary Louris)

1st Verse

Tell me now
If you came sneakin' 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 all so well


Steppin' out
Everyone can see my face (see my face)
All the things I can't erase (ooh, ooh)
From my life
Everybody knows
Standin' out
So you won't forget my name (ah, ah, ah)
That's the way we play this game (ooh, ooh)
Of life
Everybody knows

2nd Verse

Lookin' through the crowd
I search for somethin' 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
You'd never see me cry

(Repeat Chorus)


You say I'll pay the price (la, la, la, la)
That's a chance that I'll take
Though you may think I'm tellin' lies
But I just call it gettin' by

(Repeat Chorus)

Tag (Out)

Everybody knows
(Everybody knows)
(I'm just barely getting by)
