"Everyone" as written by Thomas Neil Alday and Christopher Glenn Cobb....
How was I to know you'd ever leave
How was I to know you cared for me
When every time I looked at you
You acted like I was a fool
How was I to know the truth

With all the times you ran away
I never thought that you would say
I'm the one who's lonely now
And all the times I never said I love you
Now you're in the bed with somebody and everyone else

How was I to know that I was wrong
When I was talking during your favorite song
How was I to know that I was right
When I caught you in your lies the other night

[Lead break]

But somehow I know
That we're gonna be alright
Somehow I know that we're gonna be fine

[Chorus x2]

    General CommentMy mistake (with my failed marriage) was that I did not truly live in and understanding the moment....and as a result I did not realize how bad the relationship and my life really were. I was oblivious to what was really going on in her mind, and never thought she'd ever really leave me. [How was I to know she'd ever leave] I didn't understand the signifigance of my actions [talking during your favorite song] and the signifigance of hers [your lies the other night].

    To me, this song is about taking your lover for granted, and not facing the warning signs of an impending break-up until it is too late, when all you can do is reflecting on your mistakes, which is a lonely place to be. But, out of the loneliness and reflection, the song's message is that you're gonna be alright.

    Somehow, I know that someday soon, I will be alright too.
