Bendin' over backwards
You walk on shells like a prisoner
But it's shaky ground when you livin'
In a house of cards

Your nerves are shot
You can barely cope
(You're) spread so thin like a tightrope
Trippin' over yourself to make sure
You never miss a mark

[Chorus]
Don't you know
You can't please everybody
No you can't please everybody
No matter how hard ya try

What you lookin' at me for
I used my tears to mop the floor
One stick one stone ain't enough to make me fall apart

Somebody waits for you with a crown
And somebody else wants to take ya down
It don't matter which side of the fence
That you choose to ride

[Chorus]

You need someone to hold your hand
Someone to understand
But you tiptoin' tryin' to find it's just a waste of time
So many people up in your face
Only hold ya back
Only slow your pace
You'll lose it if ya keep on tryin'

Hey hey hey

[Chorus]
