Here I am in your face, telling truths and not your old lies
Seems to me that you care and I know that you're running out of time
See you can't get away, I'll be here forever and again
Whispering in your ear, do believe 'cause you know you cannot win

Spend most your life pretending not to be
The one you are but who you choose to see
Learned to survive in your fictitious world
Does what they think of you determine your worth
Is special what you feel when your with them
Taken away you feel less than again

That's right, you gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

You gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

There's feeling inside, no, you cannot change it right away
Gotta make it try and with time it will start to go away
I'll be there when you need that one to sit and cry to
'Cause I'm the you you forgot, the only one you really cannot lie to

Bitter you'll be if you don't change your ways
When you hate you you hate everyone that day
Unleash this scared child that you've grown into
You cannot run for you can't hide from you, can't hide from you

That's right, you gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

You gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

You gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

You can't blame nobody but you
You can't blame nobody but you
You can't blame nobody
Oh that's right

You gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

You gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you

You can't blame nobody but you
You can't blame nobody but you

You gotta mean what you say, you gotta say what you mean
Trying to please everyone, sacrifice your own needs
Check in the mirror my friend, no lies will be told then
Pointing the finger again, you can't blame nobody but you
