It Doesn't Make It True

  • We can wait for the perfect moment
    But I say we're in it
    And I'll take all the punches I'm thrown
    If it's what I should do, do, do
    I want to be good
    But saying I do doesn't make it true

    As if repeating my questions
    And shrugging off suggestions
    Ever got me far

    Boys to the back and men to the front of the room
    And if you think that you've got something missing
    You probably do
    I know that acceptance comes first
    And if I want to change then I've got to work
    Just 'cause I say I do, doesn't make it true

    Courage is an acquired trait
    So we've got to admit that
    We appreciate gained strengths
    But now we're not nice to look at
    I've always though that I do
    But saying I do, doesn't make it true

    As if excusing my actions
    And well-timed nervous laughing
    Ever got me far

    Boys to the back and men to the front of the room
    And if you think that you've got something missing
    You probably do
    I know that acceptance comes first
    And if I want to change then I've got to work
    Just 'cause I say I do, doesn't make it true

    My problem: sinned enough for a lifetime
    Take him to the lake it'll drown him
    Like I never found him
    So I can't apologize
    Especially not when I know that it's alright
    I can trust myself
    To be playin' em carefully
    Why do I think I'm always right?

    As if excusing my actions
    And well-timed nervous laughing
    Ever got me far
    No it never got me far

    Boys to the back and men to the front of the room
    And if you think that you've got something missing
    You probably do
    I know that acceptance comes first
    And if I want to change then I've got to work
    Just 'cause I say I do, doesn't make it true Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
