Marianne Faithfull – Truth, Bitter Truth lyrics

Where did it go to my youth,
Where did it fade away to ?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth we didn't want to know ?

What is it - do you know ?
What is it - can I bear it ?
Who did it - do I care ?
Who is it - when did it happen and where ?

Why did you let me know,
How could you think I'd stand it ?
You knew I'd pay you back,
I did it, and it happened - do you care ?

Where did it go to, my youth ?
Where did it fade away to ?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth we didn't want to know ?

Who is he - do you know ?
This man of power but a fool.
They said he was so high and pure,
They also said that he was cruel.

They killed him, did you see ?
They knew he couldn't take it.
They wanted lies - he said the truth.
They did it - and it happened - who cares ?

Where did it go to, my youth ?
Where did it slip away to ?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth they didn't want to know ?

Why did you let me know,
How could you think I'd stand it ?
You knew I'd pay you back.
I did it, and it happened - do you care ?

What is it - do you know ?
Who did it - can I bear it ?
Who did it - do I care ?
Who is it - when did it happen and where ?

What is it - do you know ?
Who did it - can I bear it ?
Who did it - do I care ?
Who is it - when did it happen and where ?

Where did it go to, my youth ?
Where did it slip away to ?
Who was it told the truth, the bitter truth,
The truth I didn't want to know ?
