    "Everybody Wants Something" Lyrics

    Syleena Johnson

    You work a good nine to five
    And let it control you
    Hungry for the piece of the pie you think someone owes you
    But you don't try to survive past what you think you know
    You say afloat never swim, let the waves take your soul.

    Everybody wants something
    (But they don't earn it)
    But you're not gonna get from me
    (From me)
    Gotta go for what you know (what you know)
    What you get ain't all what you see.

    Relationships are up to you to manifest destiny
    You fuss and fight all the time, seems like you can't agree
    No compromise, everyone thinks they're so damn wise
    But I know one thing's for certain
    What you do brings everything, while what you say don't mean
    a damn thing
    What you say don't mean a damn thing, oh, oh.

    What you see ain't always what you get
    What you see ain't always what you get
    What you see ain't always what you get.
