It’s In You, It’s In Me

You, you ought to know
That this is never going to be a place to grow
Move, out of this space
I need to make some room away from you to find some higher grace

I thought you understood me, I thought you cared
But then I realized that deep inside no one was there
It’s not the first time, it’s not the last
But it’s the reason that I have to fight the past

It’s in you, it’s in me
It’s in everyone eventually
It’s the one thing earned
You’ll never get it for free
It’s the final act you can’t rehearse
And it’s so much fun to make it worse

You, you ought to know
That this is never going to be a place called home
Move, out of my way
You need to understand it’s not a plan, it’s just like I say

It’s in you, it’s in me
It’s in everyone eventually
It’s the one thing earned
You’ll never get it for free
It’s the final act you can’t rehearse
And it’s so much fun to make it worse

I want to understand you, I want to care
It’s hard to realize that deep inside these things aren’t fair
It’s not the first time, you hit so fast
So if you know the way it goes then I have to ask

Is it you, is it me
Is it everyone eventually?
It’s the one thing earned
You’ll never get it for free
Final acts can’t all be great
A friendly slap still marks the face

It’s in you, it’s in me
It’s in everyone eventually
It’s the one thing earned
You’ll never get it for free
It’s the final act you can’t rehearse
And it’s so much fun to make it worse

It’s inside you
It’s inside me
And everybody
Can’t you see?
