Wow. I feel kind of stupid.

See, when I bought the album DriveSHAFT, I got the UK edition. It's fairly... well, to be kind, let's say 'minimalist' compared to the US edition. Example? It doesn't have a lyric sheet. This hasn't really posed a problem for me. The internet is a great asset, and the boys are fairly easy to hear anyway. But this was until I went to have a mosey at the lyrics page of STOF. Where they have the lyrics to Everybody. Or rather, (You All) Everybody. You all? I had always thought of it as 'you are'. Either makes sense given the context of the song, but it sure leaves me feeling like an idiot. Cue discussion on what Everybody means to you! I will start by saying that though I can see the appeal of Everybody, I've always preferred the rompy-stompy punk-rock beat of Last One Standing.

Is there an album out to buy in stores?
If so, where did you get it?

I heard "You are everybody" as well. You're not alone!

Haha, I know it's You ALL Everybody... the writer who made the song got that line off of some person on Maury or Jerry Springer will poor grammar. :D

I always heard You ALL, but my best friend Myna still insists that while the lyrics might say You All, Liam is actually singing "You Are"...Well, whatever. :D

Gotta agree with you on Last One Standing, as I too prefer it to Everybody. But "Slide Away" is my absolute favorite...and it seems to get absolutely no respect in the fan community, much less among the casual listeners. :(
