Amanda Marshall - Everybody's Got A Story Lyrics




A la la la la la la la la la la
Oohh, oooh yeah

You walk up to me and say 'Feel like I know ya, baby'
And then take a sip of your cherry coke
Now, now who drinks a cherry coke
Maybe your nervous
I see that bead of sweat dancing on your cheek
Your words are like cheap champagne (cheap champagne)
I get the point but its much too sweet

I'm so tired of the dance
This carousel of superficial conversation gets me nowhere

So you can see my bra, underneath my shirt
Watch the wind, underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
Its the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart
Yeah everybody's got a story that could break your heart

Lalalalalalalananana

Now who can read the mind of the redheaded girl next door
Or the taxi driver who just dropped you off
Or the, or the classmate that you ignore
Don't assume everything on the surface is what you see
Cause that classmate just lost her mother
And that taxi driver's got a PHD

I'm so tired of the fear
That weighs us down with wrong assumptions
A broken heart's a natural function

So you can see my bra, underneath my shirt
Watch the wind, underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
Its the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my bra, underneath my shirt
Watch the wind, underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

lalalalalalala dadadada

So dig deep (dig deep)
Deeper than the image that you see (dig deep)
Lift the film and let your true self breath(dig deep)
Show the world the beauty underneath

See my bra, underneath my shirt
Watch the wind, underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
Its the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my bra, underneath my shirt
Watch the wind, underneath my skirt
But that ain't the picture it's just a part
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

See my eyes, don't see what I see
Touch my tongue, don't know what tastes good to me
Its the human condition that keeps us apart
Everybody's got a story that could break your heart

(That could break your heart baby)
(Everybody's got a story)

  16. elrota

    WAIT WAIT WAIT you gotta be kidding me- THEY TOOK OUT THE BEST PART OF THE VIDEO! Where she goes all Mystique and changes into several different races! LOL! This is ridiculous! The original video is SO MUCH better with effects and everything! This is so cookie cutter! LOL! But Amanda, girl, come back to us!!!! <3

  17. Kay Kay

    I love Amanda Marshall's music so much! I looked up to her so much as a kid cause she was so confident and her voice is so strong. Wish she would make new music.

  18. Kimberly Heys

    COME BACK AMANDA ... hoping to see you in Thunder Bay in July BUT HOPING YOU WILL COME TO CASINO RAMA - it's about 12 hours closer to me in Huntsville!!!! Missing you awesome lady ...

  19. Baby

    I drink CHERRY Coke or Drank Cherry Coke..

  20. Krysten55

    This brings back Saturday mornings driving around town...

    beautilushious

    YES! this is the exact feeling this song evokes in me as well growing up in NW Ontario.

  21. Mach Steelr

    Its so funny because watching this for the very first time, I thought it was maybe the red headed girl with the PhD and the taxi cab driver with grief...this just emphasizes her "point"....I always hated this song on the radio and I still do....oh I know it has value I know that...this is why I am here...and why I listen to it sometimes...its the peas and carrots of the music world dont you know....in a world of girls kicking azz (PiNK), being wildly inventive with paper mache (lady Gaga) and cooing yah baby singers with side gigs as flesh pots...we can be proud of Amanda for s......standing out

    Hinforth Slomie

    say no to drugs

  22. Wind Lady

    She's like Ricky Lee Jones meets Motown. I like her. I only heard of her today.

    The Purple Duckling

    That's just sad. Glad you found her though! Canada has some great artists. :)

  23. Leianna McKeever

    She's a slut. That's all I have to say.

    Wind Lady

    So? At least she's gettin' laid.

    Gatineau Sparks

    LOL and you know this how? sounds like a bitter betty to me.

  24. Krysten55

    What's with all the Amanda Marshall songs that I'm knowing?!

  25. acsidaho

    yo ... I miss you.  You still making music?  You're one of my favorite woman/lady/chic singers ...!

    beautilushious

    wtf lol GTFO ya nut

  26. Denise Martin

    Everybody's got a story that could break your heart!!

  27. Aneta Berrea

    somedays a story behind a song can be a lift smile.

  28. GeeStringG

    Not bad, but the original video is much better. This version has unsync'd vocals and cut out the parts where Amanda changes looks. Very "white"-washed visually. Amanda is actually mixed race, and that is part of the inspiration behind the song. It's a shame to see that edited out.
    For those wondering what happened to her; she had a falling out with her label over creative rights (probably because they were editing things like this video is edited). She may still be seen live from time to time and frequents Montreal and Toronto small stages.

    Master Pearson

    you should see the uncut version... i am the cherry coke guy. 

  29. Kay Gee

    What happened to Amanda Marshall?  I saw her in concert in early 2002 and listened to her all through all high school.  I absolutely adore her voice.

    Mach Steelr

    Just Google : "Amanda Marshall makes her much-anticipated return
    After a long and unintentional break caused by label legal battles, 1990s star is ready to rock again. "

  30. holly pietrzak

    I remember hearing this song on the radio a lot when I was kid

  31. holly pietrzak

    2001 had the best music

    The Purple Duckling

    Canadian music has always been good. :)

    holly pietrzak

    we should make canada proud of it too!!

  32. Michael Crane

    totally unplayed in America! 

    The Purple Duckling

    Most Canadian music is like that unfortunately. It just doesn't make it across the border, which is too bad for the US because we have some great music here!

  33. akram mousa

    This song relays the actual truth that's in this fish eat fish world. VERY NICE
    I heard it on the radio and instantaneously got hooooked.

  34. arxsyn

    This one brings back memories. Like her smoky tone here

  35. William Mark Dyer

    I thinks she should have included more metaphors.

  36. Ds Ck

    Nicely done.

  37. Master Pearson

    It was cranberry juice I was drinking

  38. Master Pearson

    I was in the Video also, what did you do?

  39. Master Pearson

    That's me drinking the cherry coke.. (really it was cranberry juice)

  40. Panda Monium

    HEY ! What happened to the original? Did someone ' bitch' about it being racial or something. Dang

  41. KiRaShi KReaTiVe

    How about we just enjoy both Amanda Marshall and Sheryl Crow?

  42. David O'Garr

    Okay, don't get me wrong. I love Amanda Marshall, but Sheryl Crow has been around longer then Amanda. So you might want to do your research before you start making that claim on others.

  43. Alex Netto

    never tried it

  44. Steven Lewis

    I worked on this video, I forgot all about it. It's a pretty good song.

  45. MegaVeronicaLodge

    Sheryl's debut CD released 1994 ~ Amanda's in 1995. Amanda's 1st contract was in 1991 - no CD resulted. In 1994 she contributed to a Neil Young Tribute CD ~ yet no market impact.

    Sheryl was a musical child as well.

    I think they are both superb ~ yet different.

    Peace,
    V

    The Purple Duckling

    There was plenty of market impact in her home country of Canada. She was huge!

  46. MegaVeronicaLodge

    Sheryl's debut CD was in 1994. Amanda's debut CD was in 1995. Sheryl being 10 yrs older ~ had already been successfully singing jingles/background vocals for major artists in the late 80's. Amanda's first record deal was 1991 ~ no CD released. She contributed to a Neil Young tribute CD in 1994 ~ no market impact resulted.

    They are both distinct ~ Amanda did not "copy" Sheryl, regardless.

    Amanda's debut CD was fabulous.

    Sheryl's "Safe and Sound" is her best vocal in my opinion.

    Peace,
    V

  47. Tina B

    That's unfortunate :(.

  48. somegalfromcan

    I'd forgotten how much I love this song!

  49. Mark Davey

    Dispute with her music management, she's been in court since 2001. The rumor has it she is legal barred from doing anymore recording until its resolved. Fiona Apple and her both Sony artists says it all.

  50. lollisixx

    She's at Casino Rama in Niagara in a few days :P

  51. visguard1234

    Sadly there isn't any artist of this calibur anymore, all it is is penny rap artists and crap singers that disappear overnight

  52. Cadistra

    I loved this song growing up. Now, I'm 26, and I still have this song on my iPod. :) It's truer today than it was ten years ago. Thank you, Amanda!

    ekatlaterrible

    Wow, do you still have the song on your iPod? =)

  53. Wednesday Addams

    I drink cherry coke!

  54. Tina B

    Seriously, what the hell happened to her?? It seems like she just disappeared or fell off the face of the earth! I remember when I used to see the ads for her albums everywhere and they used to play the video on Much Music ALL THE TIME and then all of a sudden, nothing. She is a true talent and a very beautiful soul; you can tell just by her music. So where is she now?? Is she even still making music??

  55. Samantha Villeneuve

    she's got big hair

  56. Andi Barnes

    and i still love you...since i left canada 2003!! please dont stop your amazing lyrics!! x

  57. TheMultiGunMan

    ★★★★★

    Best of the best!

  58. BBunny1616

    2 people don't have a story that could break your heart

  59. Paolo Sottile

    deeccceeee beans broo

  60. Erin Hare

    It's crazy to me that this video only got posted a little less than a year ago. I have been listening to this artist for years (along with Jann Arden and Chantal Krevaizuk). She is NOTHING like Sheryl Crow. They may have a similar voice, but the styles are so distinctly different. If you listen to her earlier stuff, she is more in the same genre with Sarah MacLaughlin. And I believe that Jann was at Lillith for a few years there. This song is kinda quirky, but listen t her old stuff. Its amazing

  61. Sarttimi

    these are the kind of songs and videos that deserve over 10,000,000 views- not "Justin Bieber kisses Selena Gomez" who gives a fuck if a person is kissing their girlfriend? geez.

  62. tony_waldo632

    @Swtmusicman11 that's where your wrong, Sheryl crow has been around since the mid 80s and this girl has been around since the late 90s. and this song is okay, a little too Sheryl crow (like 1215tony said) and the lyrics are a little stupid.

  63. Miranda Lee

    love this song!! 90's FTW!!

  64. Vintage Warhol

    everybody's got a song that could break anyone's heart.

  65. Ashley Robii

    i like this song,

  66. GuruDan Ram

    luv this song...does nto mesh with the video images, tho...i'll listen to the song...reluctant to watch the video...i gave it a "Like" because of the song!

  67. viviennovak

    lmao miss this song XD
