Lyin' next to you
Wishing I could disappear... aay
Let you fall asleep
And vanish out into thin air... aay

It's the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don't see it.
It's the avalanche that looms above our heads.
And we don't believe it.

Tryin' to be perfect
Tryin' not to let you down... ooww
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now... yeah
While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling
The walls we built together tumblin'
I still stand here holdin' up the roof
Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

I still keep your photographs
I remember how we used to laugh
I can keep on losin' sleep
If you're okay with being torn in half.

It's the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don't see it.
It's an avalanche that looms above our heads
But we don't believe it.

Tryin' to be perfect, tryin' not to let you down... oww
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now... yeah
While the floors underneath our feet are crumblin'
The walls we built together tumblin'
I still stand here holdin' up the roof
Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

Stop ignoring that our hearts are mourning
And let the rain come in.
Stop pretending that it's not ending
And let the end begin.

Oh yeah...

Tryin' to be perfect, tryin' not to let you down... yeah
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now... yeah
While the floors underneath our feet are crumblin'
The walls we built together tumblin'
I still stand here holdin' up the roof
Cause it's easier than telling the truth

    The song means that he was unfaithful or has been keeping a secret for a long time, but the woman doesnt want to believe it, that's why he says "let the end begin". He still love's her thats why it's not easy for him to tell the truth.

    truth sometimes really hurts...
    reality bites, and sometimes, even though we don't want it, we just have to simply accept it, no matter how hard it is...

    i love the vocals of this song and the song is perfect for kris allen's voice.

    sometimes, accepting the truth would be the hardest thing to do, but to live with lies would even make our life more miserable.. :|
