​Everybody By Yoself

This song is by Keb' Mo' and appears on the album Big Wide Grin (2001).

Now, you go downtown to show your face around
You got nothin' that you want to hide
You want to make a friend just again and again
You want to wake up feelin' satisfied
If you take it to heart you'll make it from the start
You'll never have to wonder why
'Cause life is bright when you look at it right
And that's something that you can't deny

Everybody's got to live, everybody's got to die
Everybody's got a right to feel good inside
Everybody's got a high, everybody's got a low
Everybody got to be yoself no matter where you go

Now if you trust yoself but nobody else
Tell me where you gonna go
Oh you might as well stay all night and day
At home with your radio
Now you can take it or leave but if you don't believe it
It's oh very plain to see
That your sister and your brother no matter what the color
Are one big family

Everybody's got to live, everybody's got to die
Everybody's got a right to feel good inside
Everybody's got a high, everybody's got a low
Everybody got to be yoself no matter where you go

Everybody's got to live, everybody's got to die
Everybody's got a right to feel good inside
Everybody's got a high, everybody's got a low
Everybody got to be yoself no matter where you go

Now if you're lookin' here and you're lookin' there
And you don't know where you're gonna fit in
Oh you never will and you won't until
You see us all the same within
You get the run around 'til you're lost and found
But don't be taken by surprise
It ain't the color of your hair or the clothes you wear
That put a smile in your neighbor's eye

Everybody's got to live, everybody's got to die
Everybody's got a right to feel good inside
Everybody's got a high, everybody's got a low
Everybody got to be yoself no matter where you go

Everybody's got a will, everybody's got a way
Everybody got to listen to what everybody say
Everybody got a nighttime, everybody got a day
Everybody's got to give a little love away
Everybody's got to stand up if you're gonna be free
Everybody got to know how to live in harmony

My my my my my my, woe woe woe woe woe
Everybody got to reap what everybody sow
Na na na na na na, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
My my my my my my, woe woe woe woe woe
Everybody got to be yoself no matter where you go
