Truth

This is the letter that I wish I could send 2 U
These are the words I always wanted to say
This is the truth behind the love voodoo that kept my heart apace
These are all my thoughts flickering through the day

This is the worry behind my running away the time before
This is my history, framed for you to see
This is the great divide between what I say
and all I wish tomorrow would be
so please don’t run away

Guided to love’s garden gate
but now it’s locked and
I feel foolish and ashamed
this is a mockery of all
that we could truly be
are you too afraid to fall
too afraid to fall for me?

These are the actions that I kept from another’s eyes
These are the moments that let us go astray
This was a love that made me say hello goodbye
this was the thoughtful list of lies
but I speak truth today

Guided to love’s garden gate
but now it’s locked and
I feel foolish and ashamed
this is a mockery of all
that we could truly be
are you too afraid to fall
too afraid to fall for me?
