EVERYBODY KNOWS
I DON'T KNOW THEY JUST DO

A picture falls
He knows he can't catch it
Trying to warn her
But she has no clue
It's another bump on the head
Broken glass
He knows things are gonna change
And he can't change it
He can't catch it
But one can't help wondering

Why is she the sacrifice
They all want to warn her
She is so nice
Why hurt her
She has no clue
She gives without asking or expectation
She gives without wanting or taking
She gives
To me and you
Old girl
There's a town with your name on it
Sunny Something Ville I think it is
Clean fresh water flows
They do your dishes and clean your car
And the flowers will make pots of tea
Just for you
You won't see me there
But you know
Somewhere
I'm there
But shucks
You won't care
Because everybody knows
I don't know
They just do
