Everything Everything - Brainchild Lyrics




Let the penny, let the penny, let the penny drop
Does she love you? Does she love you? Does she love you not?
You're in trouble if you think you're gonna need your brain, your brain

I don't need any more of this (I don't need any more of this)
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
You look so tired and I know you're feeling hella bereft
The reason she left and (oh)
It's your birthday, it's your death day
It's a war, it's a war, it's a war, it's a war
Oh Anna I've done, oh Matthew I've done
The worst, the worst, the worst, the worst
A good thing (don't you think about it, don't you make it real)
A bad thing (maybe it's a feeling I don't wanna feel)

Love, love is all you need to know
Love, love is all you need to know
Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't

I don't need any more of this (I don't need any more of this)
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
You look so tired and I know you're feeling hella bereft
The reason she left and (oh)
It's your birthday, it's your death day
It's a war, it's a war, it's a war, it's a war
Oh Anna I've done, oh Matthew I've done
The worst, the worst, the worst, the worst
A good thing (don't you think about it, don't you make it real)
A bad thing (maybe it's a feeling I don't wanna feel)

Love, love is all you need to know
Love, love is all you need to know
Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
[x2]

Shake the money, shake the money, shake the money tree
Leave the city, leave the city, leave the city be
So terrified of anything that makes you whole, you whole
Make your living selling promises that you forget
Put your head between the horror and a parapet
Your body's gonna levitate above the wall, the wall

Love, love is all you need to know
Love, love is all you need to know
Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
[x2]

Everything Everything Brainchild Comments
  1. Sean Treadway

    I feel like 90% of Everything Everything's songs are just, you really don't like them but if you listen to them for more than 2 seconds they sound really good?

  2. cosmickatt

    This balances being upbeat with being musically interesting in a way that's been lacking this decade of music

    FloydLedZep

    I wholeheartedly agree with you!

  3. John Christophe Hurley

    Great backwards arpeggios in chorus. Squarely in a major key it is but lovely sound!

  4. LoevaArt

    I just adore their songs!

  5. thistleheart

    Let the penny, let the penny, let the penny drop
    Does she love you, does she love you, does she love you not?
    You're in trouble if you think you're gonna need your brain pain
    Your brain pain
    I don't need anymore of this
    (I don't need anymore of this)
    I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
    I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
    You look so tired and I know you're feeling hella bereft
    The reasons she left you - Augh!
    It's your birthday, it's your death day
    It's a war, it's a war, it's a war, it's a war
    Oh Anna I've done, oh Matthew I've done
    The worst, the worst, the worst, the worst
    A good thing
    Now you think about it, don't you make it real?
    The bad thing
    Maybe it's a feeling I don't want to feel
    But love is all you need to know
    But love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    I don't need anymore of this
    (I don't need anymore of this)
    I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
    I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
    You look so tired and I know you're feeling hella bereft
    The reasons she left you - Augh!
    It's your birthday, it's your death day!
    It's a war, it's a war, it's a war, it's a war
    Oh Anna I've done, oh Matthew I've done
    The worst, the worst, the worst, the worst
    A good thing
    Now you think about it, don't you make it real?
    The bad thing
    Maybe it's a feeling I don't want to feel
    But love is all you need to know
    But love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    But love is all you need to know
    But love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Shake the money, shake the money, shake the money tree
    Leave the city, leave the city, leave the city be
    So terrified of anything that makes you haunt
    Make a living selling brollies as you forget
    But your heart between a horror and a parapet
    Your bodies going to levitate above the road
    But love is all you need to know
    But love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause your better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause your better when you don't
    But love is all you need to know
    But love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause your better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause your better when you don't

  6. Pafkata

    Why have i never heard of that guy? Is this song old?

  7. canal ONDAS

    Verses are fuckin killer man, musically and vocally wise. Witty lyrics and rhymes which also feel like other instrument in the flow of this great song.

    A bad thing (maybe it's a feeling I don't wanna feel)

    [Chorus]
    Love, love is all you need to know

    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't

    [Bridge]
    Shake the money, shake the money, shake the money tree
    Leave the city, leave the city, leave the city be
    So terrified of anything that makes you whole, you whole
    Make your living selling promises that you forget
    Put your head between the horror and a parapet
    Your body's gonna levitate above the wall, the wall

    [Chorus]
    Love, love is all you need to know
    Love, love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Love, love is all you need to know
    Love, love is all you need to know
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't
    Are you trying to be clever? Cause you're better when you don't

  9. CHRISTI XX

    This has a happy sound, and I like the art.

  10. keroji s

    found this after randomly searched brainchild.

  11. Sean Normand

    I have this album, but none of these bonus tracks! ?!WHY!?

  12. Brian Mbae

    DOOOOOPE SONG

  13. Nonnez

    Everything Everything is the type of music that you can't describe, it's an experience that you have to listen to, to truly see the magic of there music.

  14. E-man BIC

    Are you Christian?

  15. Jack Broad

    this is ridiculous. this song is a b-side and it's a masterpiece. most bands would kill to write a song this good and it's basically a throwaway for everything everything. by far the best "newish" band out there right now!

    Ollie Wood

    Jack Broad yeah and jonathan said they were disappointed with their B sides in get to heaven - calling them crap This, President heartbeat, hapsburg lippp, only as good as my god...what is he on about

    DaChipser

    Some of their b sides are my favorite EE songs.
    They could'nt make a bad song even if they wanted to

  16. pizza time

    one of my favorite songs in the album!

  17. Carlos Vargas Delgado

    Very interesting band, splendid sound and perfect voices . I remembered GENTLE GIANT !!!!!

  18. Molten_

    the flow in this song is so goddamn good

  19. Nora Isolde Silow

    god I love their mix between like kindof casual pop and these progressive super funky beats
    gives me man alive vibes, feels like they were more progressive back then...
    still fucking amazing tho

  20. jryuwah

    this band makes some of the most spellbinding choruses/hooks in modern music. all while maintaining musical integrity. amazing writers. love this band so much.

  21. Ella

    This really sounds like Man Alive. I love it.

    Rayyan Khan

    3lla yeah it does

  22. Tim Senna

    "I take no credit for this song. I am just spreading awareness of amazing music." Now that is the way to write a copyright notice
