If you've ever kept a secret from the one you love?
This is what it feels like

If you thought that I was perfect
Boy you were wrong, I'm far from that
There's one thing that I've done to you
That I regret and

Look I know it's no excuse but
I'm only human and young at that
So I'm gonna make mistakes
And hope you understand

Didn't see it comin', wasn't on purpose
Baby I promise I didn't mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me? You didn't deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

Gotta tell him the truth when I'm ready to
Tell him the truth somehow
Gotta tell him the truth that's what I gotta do
Tell him the truth but not now

Gotta tell him the truth, just wait a little bit
Tell him the truth, he couldn't handle it
Tell him the truth that's what I gotta do
Tell him the truth but not now, oh

Didn't see when I had tears rolling down my face
I turned my back, it was heavy on the tongue
And I knew that you knew something was wrong

I was about to break open, spill out everything
But something said, Keri wait
Things are going great, what you gonna say?
I don't know maybe something like

Didn't see it comin', wasn't on purpose
Baby I promise I didn't mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me? You didn't deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

Gotta tell him the truth when I'm ready to
Tell him the truth somehow
Gotta tell him the truth that's what I gotta do
Tell him the truth but not now

Gotta tell him the truth, just wait a little bit
Tell him the truth, he couldn't handle it
Tell him the truth that's what I gotta do
Tell him the truth but not now, oh

I feel less than nothin'
Lower than zero
And I'm tired of frontin'
Gotta tell him the truth, ooh

I feel less than nothin'
Lower than zero
And I'm tired of frontin'
Gotta tell him the truth, ooh

Guess I've been waitin' for the stars to align
There's no perfect time, I gotta tell him the truth
'Cause it's hard to build the truth on a lie
And if that's what I want

I gotta tell him the truth when I'm ready to
Tell him the truth somehow
Gotta tell him the truth that's what I gotta do
Tell him the truth but not now

Gotta tell him the truth, truth, just wait a little bit
Tell him the truth, he couldn't handle it
Tell him the truth that's what I gotta do
I gotta but not now, oh

Baby, I'm cryin', I'm crying', oh
Gotta tell him the truth
Gotta tell him the truth
Gotta tell him the truth
