Ok, Here's The Truth - Album Version

作詞:     作曲:
There's a look on her face
She's starting to master
And she carefully closes the door
She's been coming home late
With pre-packaged answers
To questions she tries to avoid

Now she's talking too fast
And I just have to ask
Baby what's all the cloak and dagger for

Okay here's the truth
I ran out of gas
And I didn't call cause I thought you'd be mad
So I started to walk
Took an hour and a half
To get off that highway and fill up that can
I was hoping that you'd understand

She's getting good with the lies
So good that you wondered
If the rabbit in the hat tricks for real
She turns water into wine
And I'd almost believed her
If her eyes just for once could keep still

Now my patience wasting
Cause she's late once again
Baby tell me what delayed you this time

Okay here's the truth
It's gonna sound kind of strange
But I took a new way home from work for a change
It started out fine
Til I got to Route 9
When an hour away before I realized
I'm sorry I ruined all your plans
I was hoping that you'd understand

And there watching her secretly talking
It is just about all I can bear
Now I know why she's been wearing
More make-up and caring
So much about changing her hair

The telephone vibrates on the table again
Another damn private call coming through
And now she's visibly shaking
And I just feel like taking that phone
Throwing it clear across the room

She answers “hello”
A man's voice I don't know
Says “it's time that you tell him the truth”
Now I can't take this no more
Honey I'm out the door
No, I won't relax
I got my suitcase all packed
What she said next stopped me dead in my trust

Okay here's the truth
It's not what you think
The man that you heard is head of oncology
I'm sorry I lied
To you all of those times
I didn't know how to tell you
I might not survive
Okay there's the truth
I've got six months to live
I wanted what's best for you and the kids
I promise I'll fight
With all of my mind
But if I lose this battle
I lived a good life
So baby just please hold my hand
And tell me that you understand
