The Truth

Album: Once Upon a Mind (2019)
  • It's a long, lonely road
    That I've walked on my own
    Never thought I'd end up in this place (ooh-ooh)
    I went fast, I went slow
    Then I gave up all hope
    'Cause I know, either way, it's the same (ooh-ooh)

    And I'm not tryna find somebody
    'Cause no one else but you will do (ooh-ooh)
    Yeah, the real thing is gone
    Now I wish I could hold you

    I wasted all of these days and nights
    Trying to chase all these empty highs
    But I had to go through my worse so I know that I just needed you (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    As I look out at the morning sun
    There's no escape from the things I've done
    And out of everything I've lost, now I know that I just needed you (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    And darling, that's the truth (oh-oh-oh-oh)

    I don't lie anymore
    In a heap on the floor
    'Cause I'm clear on the road I must take (ooh-ooh)

    And I'm not tryna find somebody
    'Cause no one else but you will do (ooh-ooh)
    I'm getting close, I'm stumbling over everything I need to say to you

    I wasted all of these days and nights
    Trying to chase all these empty highs
    But I had to go through my worse so I know that I just needed you (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    As I look out at the morning sun
    There's no escape from the things I've done
    And out of everything I've lost, now I know that I just needed you (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    And darling, that's the truth (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    And darling, that's the truth (oh-oh-oh-oh)

    I was searching, every fiber
    If you're out there, leave a light on
    'Cause the distance is getting wider
    And I know I've gotta find ya

    I wasted all of these days and nights
    Trying to chase all these empty highs
    But I had to go through my worse so I know that I just needed you (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    As I look out at the morning sun
    There's no escape from the things I've done
    And out of everything I've lost, now I know that I just needed you (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    And darling, that's the truth (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    And darling, that's the truth (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    And darling, that's the truth Writer/s: Cleo Tighe, James Blount, Steve Robson
