One Truth Among My Lies


I was almost shaking when I left them behind
I was almost falling to my knees
I can honestly tell you that I’ve never been kind
and I sure don’t deserve sympathy
no I sure don’t deserve sympathy

When I see those rivers winding down to the coast
When I see those people who are there
I can honestly tell you that I feel like a ghost
and I sure don’t deserve what is fair
no I sure don’t deserve what is fair

Have you seen my children’s home?
Have you seen my lover’s eyes?
Could you roll away my stone
and let me have one truth among my lies?
And let me have one truth among my lies?

I was far away when I stopped for a breath
I was far away from what is sweet
I can honestly tell you that I’ll lie to my death
and I’ll leave what I’ve done incomplete
I will leave what I’ve done incomplete
