If I could tell the truth, people just might see
Who I really am, not who I have to be
I get so damn tired of playing by the rules
Afraid of what I'd lose, if I could tell the truth

Nobody wants to listen, when it comes down to this
We'd rather take the truth and twist it, than to tell it like it is
I don't know how we got here, there's really no excuse
I do it to get by, but I wouldn't live this lie, if I could tell the truth

If I could tell the truth, girl, we'd end up in a fight
And I would still be wrong, and you would still be right
We could stay right here another year or two
But I'm already gone, if I could tell the truth

Nobody wants to listen, when it comes down to this
We'd rather take the truth and twist it, than to tell it like it is
I don't know how we got here, there's really no excuse
I do it to get by, but I wouldn't live this lie, if I could tell the truth
I do it to get by, but I wouldn't live this lie, if I could tell the truth
