Everybody’s Sorry About Something

Music and Lyrics by Steve Epley

 

Well you used to be my little boy.  Now you’ve grown into a man.

I couldn’t be more proud of you.

The way you try to love and understand.

Now I know you know, but I gotta say it anyway.

The world, the world, the world, the world

Gonna make you fall on your knees and pray.

 

Everybody’s sorry about something tonight.

Everybody’s sorry about something.

 

There’s no genie in a bottle.  There ain’t no magic beans.

But still you can be sure my sweet boy

Things are seldom what they seem.

And when you go blind, all it means is you’re about to see

That love and love and love is the answer

And sometimes you just gotta let it be

 

Everybody's sorry about something tonight.

Everybody's sorry about something.

 

Millionaires and billionaires, poor men and in between

Think they’re gonna find some satisfaction

When they run the machine.

But all you’re ever gonna do is serve God in some way

And all God Almighty’s ever gonna tell you about that is,

“Get outa your own way!”

 

 Now in China they got all the answers.  And India, too.

But no matter where you go, it’s just gonna be God and you.

So tonight you may feel like a failure, like a fool without a clue.

But you’re not the first, and you ain’t gonna be the last

To stand in those shoes, because…

 

Everybody's sorry about something tonight.

Everybody's sorry about something.
