The Truth

The only one you wanted was the one who was not there
This is how you came to me with riddles in your hair
As I tried to solve them you laughed without a care
I unwound all your secrets in a hotel room somewhere
But morning shuffled in and they withered in its stare
Your dreams were standing naked your ambitions standing bare
And I faced the final question – were you ever really there

Just close your eyes
And I’ll disappear
It’ll be just like
I was never here
No need to trick the heart with lies
Just close your eyes

The truth is in the way you hardly look at me
The truth is in the way we seldom touch
I have loved you from the first time that you walked into my life
But I know you never loved me quite as much

Just close your eyes
And I’ll disappear
It’ll be just like
I was never here
No need to trick the heart with lies
Just close your eyes

The truth is in the way you brush your golden hair
The truth is counted by those needs denied
Sacred preparations for the man who isn’t there
For the one who is – just distance multiplied

Just close your eyes
And I’ll disappear
It’ll be just like
I was never here
No need to trick the heart with lies
Just close your eyes
