Staind – The Truth lyrics

It's 3 am it's cold outside you can't sleep
Is it from your conscience talking to the skeletons you keep
Every time you try to speak only craziness comes out
But she can't turn the other cheek
And you can't hide how it comes out
So when did you decide to embrace what you hate to survive
Cause that's not what got us here

It's 8 am and still no sleep
But you don't care
I don't know why I keep on calling
Does it get us anywhere?
Cause every time I try to speak
You never let my words come out
I can't turn the other cheek
And I can't help how this comes out
So when did you decide to embrace what you hate to survive
Cause that's not what got us here

Honestly I don't know how you could see
Something you once saw in me
Just another ball of tears
Wonder if you ever lie awake in bed and think about the things you said
Your dedication shows that you can't see you're eyes are closed
And all the promises you made to me they seem to fade and leave me with this disappointment
That these words can never show

When your ride is over and you're hanging by a thread
As your house of cards is falling just remember what I said
So when do you decide to embrace you hate to survive
Cause that's not what got us here

And Honestly I don't know how you could see
Something you once saw in me
Just another ball of tears
