I said it was over
I said we were through
I said when I left I
Was done loving you
But I'm fighting a feeling
That can't be denied
Forget what I told you
The truth is I lied

I know you weren't expectin'
This visit from me
With my hat in my hand and
My heart on my sleeve
But I've stopped my pretending
And I've swallowed my pride
I'm not above saying
The truth is I lied

The truth is I'm not quite as strong as
I thought this battle is harder
Than an war that we've fought
I said I could just push your memory aside
I meant it when I said it but the truth is I lied

Is it asking to much to forget and forgive
Dying for your love
Is no way to live
And the truth is I'm just not as strong as I thought
This battle is harder
Than any war that we've fought
I said I could just push your memory aside
I meant it when I said it but the truth is I lied
Oh, I meant it when I said it, the truth is ......I lied
