Smoke a cigarette
An' I know I've had enough
Mash whiskey in another paper cup
Didn't know it, babe
But your cup was runnin' over
Never time to do it right
But it's time to do it over

An' I lay awake
Big dreamers never sleep, no they don't
Time to play the cards, read 'em an' weep
Well I, I always heard it said
That the truth will set you free
Woman, with the way you do
Well, how can I believe?

A smokin' mountain got to blow
I'm a livin' proof
Well, right now I think it's time
To tell the truth, baby

Time to tell the truth
Yeah, you got to try
Stop lying, baby
Time to tell the truth

Doin' time behind these bedroom walls
Blink of an eye, another shooting star falls
Tried to tell you, babe
But you don't want to hear me
Take one good look, these are tears of fury

Well, then let it show, a big catastrophe
Now I don't wanna know your social activities
If the world loves a bad guy
Well, then, how 'bout the doubt?
I was first one to get in, baby
I'm the last one out

Profess to love me, babe
Then, why can't I tell?
All you do is use me, babe
You're lying to yourself

I think it's time
Time to tell the truth
Stop lying, baby
Time to tell the truth

Mama, please
Baby, please

If the world really loves a bad guy
Well, then, how 'bout the doubt?
Well, I was first one to get in
Now I'm the last one out

Smokin' mountain got to blow
I'm livin' proof
And now I know it's time
Yes, it is

Try
Time to tell the truth
Yeah, tell the truth now
Time to tell the truth
Stop lying, baby

Time to tell the truth
Tell the truth now
Time to tell the truth
Tell the truth now, baby
Time to tell the truth
