Truth Be Told

Matthew West - Truth Be Told

Share this Song

Lie number one, you're supposed to have it all together
And when they ask how you're doin'
Just smile and tell them, "Never better"
Lie number two, everybody's life is perfect except yours
So keep your messes and your wounds
And your secrets safe with you behind closed doors

But truth be told
The truth is rarely told, no

I say, "I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine"
But I'm not, I'm broken
And when it's out of control, I say it's under control
But it's not and You know it
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
When bein' honest is the only way to fix it
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
So let the truth be told

There's a sign on the door
Says, "come as you are," but I doubt it
'Cause if we lived like that was true
Every Sunday mornin' pew would be crowded
But didn't You say church should look more like a hospital?
A safe place for the sick
The sinner and the scarred, and the prodigals like me

Well, truth be told
The truth is rarely told
Oh, am I the only one who says

"I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine"
But I'm not, I'm broken
And when it's out of control, I say it's under control
But it's not and You know it
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
When bein' honest is the only way to fix it
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
So let the truth be told

Can I really stand here unashamed
Knowin' that Your love for me won't change?
Oh God, if that's really true
Then let the truth be told

I say, "I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine"
But I'm not, I'm broken (I'm broken)
And when it's out of control, I say it's under control
But it's not and You know it (You know it)
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
When bein' honest is the only way to fix it
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
Yeah, I know (I know)
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
So let the truth be told
