Everybody Knew

Charlie carried fewer bags
every time he came around
and he wonders what he lost
and how he might be found
been out there working in construction
build it up and tear it down
and he always came and told them
that it wouldn’t take to long

His lovers knew
his best friends knew
and his father
everybody he knew knew
he could he could
everybody he knew knew
once he got it in his heart
he would never give it up

And they hadn’t seen his face
since the stars were in his eyes
and they never had a clue
cause they’d never seen him cry
and he always needed money
and he wished that he could buy
and he got it in his head
everything would be all right
