the avett brothers – tell the truth lyrics

Loading...

[chorus]
tell the truth to yourself
and the rest will fall in place
tell the truth to yourself
and the rest will fall in place

[verse 1]
i lied to the doctor
i lied to my lover

[pre-chorus]
i wanna make amends, but where do i start?

[chorus]
tell the truth to yourself (tell the truth)
and the rest will fall in place (to your)
tell the truth to yourself (tell the truth)
and the rest will fall in place

[bridge]
ah, ah
ah, ah
tell the truth to yourself
tell the truth

[interlude]
i can make my mother, my father, my sister, my brother
my lover, my neighbor, my friends all happy
give of myself whatever they ask
but without this single truth
it is only emptiness that i cast
a happiness that will not last
but i’m not here for that
for what does happiness help
without this simple truth given to thyself?

[verse 2]
i was the coward
how they strangled your heart

[pre-chorus]
i wanna make amends, but where do i start?

[chorus]
tell the truth to yourself
and the rest will fall in place
tell the truth to yourself
and the rest will fall in place
tell the truth to yourself (tell the truth)
and the rest will fall in place (to your)
tell the truth to yourself (tell the truth)
and the rest will fall in place
