Everybody Knows Lyrics

Everybody Knows (《莱奥纳德·科恩:我是你的男人》纪录片插曲) - Rufus Wainwright

Everybody knows

That the dice are loaded

 

Everybody rolls

With their fingers crossed

Everybody knows

That the war is over

Everybody knows

The good guys lost

Everybody knows

The fight was fixed

 

The poor stay poor

The rich get rich

That's how it goes

 

Everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

That the boat is leaking

Everybody knows

That the captain lied

 

Everybody got this broken feeling

 

Like their father

Or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets

Everybody wants a box of chocolates

And a long stem rose

 

Everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

That you love me baby

Everybody knows

That you really do

Everybody knows

That you've been faithful

Ah give or take a night or two

Everybody knows

You've been discreet

But there were so many people

You just had to meet

Without your clothes

 

And everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

That's how it goes

 

And everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

That's how it goes

And everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

That it's now or never

 

Everybody knows

That it's me or you

And everybody knows

That you live forever

Ah when you've done a line or two

Everybody knows

The deal is rotten

Old black joes still picking cotton

For your ribbons and bows

And everybody knows

 

And everybody knows

That the plague is coming

Everybody knows

That it's moving fast

Everybody knows

That the naked man and woman

Are just a shining artifact of the past

Everybody knows

The scene is dead

But theres gonna be a meter on your bed

That will disclose

What everybody knows

 

And everybody knows

That you're in trouble

Everybody knows

What you've been through

From the bloody cross on top of calvary

To the beach of malibu

 

Everybody knows

It's coming apart

Take one last look at

This sacred heart

Before it blows

 

And everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

That's how it goes

 

And everybody knows

 

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

That's how it goes

 

And everybody knows
