The Truth Submit Correct Lyrics

Let me tell you why I love him

'Cause he is the truth, said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
Because his light it shines so bright, I wouldn't lie

I remember the very first day that I saw him
I found myself immediately intrigued by him
It's almost like I knew this man from another life
Like back then maybe I was his husband maybe he was my wife

And even things I don't like about him are fine with me
'Cause it's not hard for me to understand him 'cause he's so much like me
And it's truly my pleasure to share his company
And I know that it's God's gift to breathe the air he breathes

'Cause he is the truth, said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
Because his light it shines so bright, I wouldn't lie, no

How can the same man that makes me so mad
(Do you know what he did?)
Turn right around and kiss me so soft?
(Girl, do you know what he did?)
If he ever left me I wouldn't even be sad, no
'Cause there's a blessin' in every lesson and I'm glad that I knew him at all

'Cause he is the truth, said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
Because his light, it shines so bright

I love the way he speaks
I love the way he thinks
I love the way that he treats his mama
I love that gap in between his teeth

I love him in every way
That a woman can love a man
From personal to universal
But most of all it's unconditional

You know what I'm talking about
That's the way I feel and I always will
There ain't no substitute for the truth
Either it is or isn't

('Cause he is the truth)
You see the truth, it needs no proof
Either it is or it isn't
('Cause he is the truth)

Now you know the truth by the way it feels
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
Because he is, yes he is
I wonder does he know
