“It’s In Everyone of Us” is a beautiful song. We are fortunate that David wrote the song and lucky that Clay Aiken was able to record it!

 

It’s in everyone of us
To be wise
Find your heart
Open up both your eyes,
We can all know everything
Without ever knowing why,
It’s in everyone of us
By and by
It’s in everyone of us
To be wise,
Find your heart
Open up both your eyes,
We can all know everything
Without ever knowing why,
It’s in everyone of us
By and by
