The Truth

You're such a contradiction
in everything you do.
You tell me what I want to hear,
everything I wish was true.
But then you go and deny it all,
and say it's only an exaggeration.

I'm sick of being shrouded
with these half truths and white lies.
I wish one day we'll tell the truth,
but who knows when that'll be.

As for now you're being cruel
whether you mean to be or not.
You say this was so long ago,
so did I really miss my chance?

But the honest-to-God truth is
I'm scared too.
I don't know how this'll end,
but I want it so much,
I'm even suprising myself.
