If you've ever kept a secret
From the one you love
This is what it feels like

If you thought that I was perfect
Boy you were wrong
I'm far from that
There's one thing that I've done to you
That I regret and
Look I know it's no excuse but
I'm only human and young at that
And I'm gonna make mistakes
And hope you understand

Didn't see it comin
Wasn't on purpose
Baby I promise
I didn't mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me
You didn't deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

I'm a tell him the truth
(When I'm ready to)
Tell him the truth
(Some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now)
Gotta Tell him the truth
(Just wait a little bit)
Tell him the truth
(He couldn't handle it)
Tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now ooh)

Didn't see when I had tears rolling down my face
I turned my back
It was heavy on the tongue
And I kenew that you knew something was wrong
I was about to break open spill out everything
But something said
Keri wait, Things are going great, what you gonna say
I don't know maybe something like

Didn't see it comin
Wasn't on purpose
Baby I promise
I didn't mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me
You didn't deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

I'm a tell him the truth
(When I'm ready to)
Tell him the truth
(Some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now)
Gotta Tell him the truth
(Just wait a little bit)
Tell him the truth
(He couldn't handle it)
Tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now ooh)

I feel less( than nothin)
Lower (than zero)
And tired (of frontin)
Gotta tell him the truth ooh
I feel less( than nothin)
Lower (than zero)
And tired (of frontin)
Gotta tell him the truth ooh

Guess I've been waitin for the stars to align
There's no perfect time
I gotta tell him the truth
Cause it's hard to build the truth on a lie
And if that's what I want
I gotta tell him the truth

I'm a tell him the truth
(When I'm ready to)
Tell him the truth
(Some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now)
Gotta Tell him the truth
(Just wait a little bit)
Tell him the truth
(He couldn't handle it)
Tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now ooh)
