Everybody Knows
John Legend

Intro:
G#, Cm7, C#, Fm

Verse:
G#                   Cm7                                G#
It gets harder every day, but I can't seem to shake the pain
                                Cm7
I'm trying to find the words to say, please stay
G#                       Cm7
It's written all over my face, I can't
C#
Function the same when you're not here
    Fm
I'm calling your name and no one's there
C#                 D#_high                  G#
And I hope one day you'll see nobody has it easy,
              Cm7                        C#
I still can't believe you found somebody new
                   D#_high
But I wish you the best, I guess.

Chorus:
G#               Cm7                       C#
'Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
               Fm       D#_low
How to make it work or how to ease the hurt
G#                 Cm7                    C#
We've heard it all before, that everybody knows
               Fm               D#_low           Bbm   Fm
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try (try)
         G#   Cm7
One more try (try)
         Bbm
One more try
                 D#_low                   G#
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I donít care what people say, theyíre probably lonely anyway
                        Cm7                 G#
Baby donít fill up your head, with he said, she said
                          Cm7
It seems like you just donít know, (donít know)

The radios on, you tuning me out
