Everybody Bleeds the Same is a song performed by Kerli and included in her third studio album Shadow Works.

Composition Edit

Musically, the song reminisces the production and structure of Mimicry, since both tracks run at a moderate tempo of 80 beats per minute and feature two verses, a chorus and an instrumental break. Lyrically, Everybody Bleeds the Same addresses Kerli's fragility and failures, as she is not a perfect creature and makes mistakes, too, as everybody does. Regret and fault is also a constant theme through the song, specifically in the chorus.

LyricsEdit

Catch me as I fall apart
All over you and the floor
Wishing we could go back to the start
But every wound is salty, every memory scarred
Naked, standing here defeated
Triggering words and settling scores
Dishing out shame for the way that we're flawed
Forgive me, I'm a failure when it comes to your heart

I am sorry, I am just a human
And I'm made of mistakes
Only miss it when I know I've lost it
Only bend when it breaks
But it's not just me who has been faulty
Not just you who's in pain
'Cause everybody bleeds the same

Stripped of pride, I'm on my knees
Got only white flags and torn up walls
Baby, can we put the weapons down?
Cause everyone has fallen in the standing of grounds
Too late to say we don't mean it
We cannot take back the damage we've caused
We cut too close and we push too far
Forgive me, I'm a failure when it comes to your heart

I am sorry, I am just a human
And I'm made of mistakes
Only miss it when I know I've lost it
Only bend when it breaks
But it's not just me who has been faulty
Not just you who's in pain
'Cause everybody bleeds the same
