lyrics

I need no note
For my recent absence
Please let that be understood

It just took a while
To get to grips with your falseness
I knew I eventually would

I’ve come to grips with it now
It no longer brings me down
But I won’t trust a word I’m told

Not by you anyway
Cause your lies take centre stage
You’d leave your own family in the cold
Not a lot I can do
If you won’t tell the truth

I want it all
With no exceptions
Don’t let it take too long to find
I want it all
Uncensored
Don’t make me read between the lines
I want it all
So give it to me straight
for if I hear another lie
Then I will make up my own mind

take it from me
It’s not the way you want to be
All you’re doing

Is running from yourself
If you continue to be blind
And live inside your mind
My attentions will be turned
Somewhere else


I‘ve got that light in my face
And I will not fall from grace
If you’ve no will to make things right
Oh you’re gonna get the boot
If you can’t tell the truth

Give me the truth
oh the truth ya the truth
Give me the truth
oh the truth ya the truth
Give me the truth
oh the truth ya the truth
Give me the truth
oh you know I want it all
With no exceptions
Don’t let it take too long to find
I want it all
Uncensored
Don’t make me read between the lines
I want it all
So give it to me straight
for if I hear another lie
Then I will make up my own mind
