So Tell Me

Waking up, it's a new day
three thousand miles away
from all I've ever known,
but it's not the first time on my own.
And I'm looking forward to making
memories here without you
despite the years that we invested,
after all, this is my town too.

And when you told me about the
kind things he did for you
I knew that something wasn't right
but didn't want to start a fight
so I found the proof and that's when I said:

I think it's time you tell the truth, (no sense in hiding anymore),
I won't stand by and waste my youth, (no more, no more),
No need extending any longer (no),
These broken promises that won't be honored.
So tell me, so tell me the truth this evening.

I'm gonna see the city
and take the late train in.
Gonna fly home to California
and spend a few days with my friends.
And if they ask me what happened
and why I'm not with you,
I'll tell them something wasn't right
but didn't want to start a fight
so I found the proof and that's when I said:

I think it's time you tell the truth, (no sense in hiding anymore),
I won't stand by and waste my youth, (no more, no more),
No need extending any longer (no),
These broken promises that won't be honored.

Sometimes we find it hard to face reality
when life goes on and love gets lost along the way.
You could have said this wasn't what you thought it'd be,
instead I found out that you'd moved on without telling me.
But now I'm free, now I'm free.

I think it's time you tell the truth, (no sense in hiding anymore),
I won't stand by and waste my youth, (no more, no more),
No need extending any longer (no),
These broken promises that won't be honored.
So tell me, so tell me the truth, I said,
So tell me, so tell me, so tell me.
