Know you got to run, know you got to hide.
Still there is a great life engrained deep within your eyes.
Open up, open up, baby, let me in.
You expect for me to love you when you hate yourself my friend la, la, la...

Everybody I love you, everybody I do, oh, yes.
Though your heart is an answer, I need your love to get me through,
oh yeah, I really do now.
When I tell you I love you, when I tell you, you can believe that it's true, oh, yes it is.

Everybody I love you, everybody I do, oh, yes I really do now…

    General CommentNO comments for this song yet? A shame, it's a fantastic closing number to a fantastic album, "Deja Vu" by CSNY.

    The song's meaning is obvious. People think they can run and hide from their destiny, but the speaker knows there is some good human spirit buried under all that resentment and self loathing.

    You can't begin to love others, until you learn to love yourself. It's a timeless message that has been preached since the days of Jesus, even before that. There is nothing more true than love.

    I must say though, I believe the correct lyrics for that last line is "Though your heart is an answer."
