American Idol Alex Lambert Sings “Everybody Knows” by John Legend – Lyrics

American Idol Season 9 Alex Lambert Sings Everybody KnowsLast night on American Idol, the top 10 guys were forced to perform instead of the top 10 ladies, due to health concerns for one of the female singers.  Although they were put on the spot, the guys had a much better week than last week.

Alex Lambert decided to sing John Legend’s “Everybody Knows.”  All of the judges had positive things to say about the 19-year-old singer, although the one common concern was his lack of experience.  But even Simon said, “Alex, that was a million times better than last week.”

Here are the lyrics to “Everybody Knows,” by John Legend:

It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
i’m trying to find the words to say, please say
it’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
i’m calling your name and no one’s there
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
’cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
we’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I don’t care what the people say
They brought it all in anyway
Baby don’t fill up your head with he-said, she-said
It seems like you just don’t know
The radio?s on, you tuning me out,
i’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
’cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
we’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
’cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Oh I wish you?d understand
Oh, just an ordinary man
Listen we?d have known
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows
And I know one day you’ll see, nobody has it easy
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
I wish you the best, I guess.

’cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
we’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
’cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows
