  • Turn off the lights and close your eyes and tell me what you see
    I'll bet it doesn't have a goddamn thing to do with me
    There's nothing left to say
    I finally know the truth about you

    You come alive you played it well I was the last to know
    My premonition was the only thing that let it show
    I gave you everything
    But I could never pacify you

    So go on and cry me a river
    Don't say this will haunt you forever
    It never did it never will

    Tear it away I wanna see just what you really are
    And rip the veil that hides that wretched soul you call a heart
    This is my agony
    But I return to stay beside you

    So go on and cry me a river
    Don't say this will haunt you forever
    It never did it never will

    Vows are not meant to be broken
    You never cared for a moment
    You never did you never will

    Now I know the truth about you
    All you need I will deny you

    So go on and cry me a river
    Don't say this will haunt you forever
    It never did it never will

    All that you see you devour
    The money the greed and the power
    You always did you always will

    Now I know the truth about you
    All you need I will deny you Writer/s: MARK TREMONTI, MYLES KENNEDY, SCOTT PHILLIPS
