Track Name: The Truth We Both Knew
I'm not sure if e'er I told you
One of your traits that I love best
Was of how little I could note
My mother's nature in your throat
How your emotions rest

But if my mother had a temper
And I've lied throughout my days
The truth will still somehow survive
Because we see our simple lives
In complicated ways

When the truth came I felt no surprise
I could see you crying behind calm eyes
We could feel our time was finally due
To shed the disguise, to tell the truth
That we both knew

I'm not sure that I love you
At least I wouldn't use that word
I love the way you make me laugh
I love the way that we can talk
I love the way we work

But now you want your separation
And I get the reasons why
But the problem of it is
We're much too good of friends
To let this lie

You're a cool, smooth stone in the palm of my hand
I'm a fast moving train with no direction planned
I don't know if we were stuck in euphoric clouds
Or hardened sand, but any how
We're standing now
