Song Post- "The Truth"

Ever have those moments where you hear a song you've heard dozens of times before and something just clicks? It catches your ear, the words become clearer and it all just pours into you and takes over in some way. This happened to me a few times in the past month (all with songs that have been around for a while) so I'll probably do another post like this in a bit.

I've heard this song a lot at work on the satellite station and never paid much attention to it, but one day last week I found myself thinking of it a lot. Since then I've had it on constant rotation. It's heart-wrenching but beautifully written, it really gets to me and I've decided to write some pieces like this...



Kris Allen- "The Truth"

Lying next to you
Wishing I could disappear
Let you fall asleep
And vanish out into thin air.

It's the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don't see it.
It's the avalanche that looms above our heads.
And we don't believe it.

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now.
While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling
The walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
'Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

I still keep your photographs
I remember how we used to laugh
I can keep on losing sleep
If you're okay with being torn in half.

It's the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don't see it.
It's an avalanche that looms above our heads
But we don't believe it.

Trying to be perfect, trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling
The walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
'Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

Stop ignoring that our hearts are mourning
And let the rain come in.
Stop pretending that it's not ending
And let the end begin.

Trying to be perfect, trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling
The walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
'Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

It's easier than telling the truth.
