Perfectly Honest

Tryin to be perfect
Tryin not to let you down
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now
I'm still standing here holding the roof
Cause it's easier than telling the truth
Oh still tryin not to let you down.

You ask me if I'm okay
Honestly I'm just trying to make it through the day
But I keep tellin you those half-lies
And you won't look me in the eyes
To see for yourself
That I'd honestly just rather die
You'd just rather believe my lies.

Tryin to be perfect
Tryin not to let you down
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now
I'm still standing here holding the roof
Cause it's easier than telling the truth
Oh still tryin not to let you down.

I don't want this love to be the end of me
This love is taking all of my energy
After loving you, I put my heart on a shelf
Afraid to take it down for someone else
It's broken and mangled, all the ties and knots tangled
But as far as you know it's still perfect

Tryin to be perfect
Tryin not to let you down
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now
I'm still standing here holding the roof
Cause it's easier than telling the truth
Oh still tryin not to let you down.

I'm fine (when I'm with you)
I'm not cryin (while someone else is around)
I've moved on (to just waiting)
I've forgotten us (while drowning in this bottle)
I'm being perfectly honest
Without telling the whole truth
