Roughly based on a true story from when I was about 14 years old.

lyrics

TRUTH
© Bob Wright

I have to say it out loud
the truth will never be known
I’ve tried to set it straight
but I’m getting old
it ain’t the same for us all
it shifts around like the wind
try it on for size
you might win
in the end

there are always
at least two sides
someone goes home happy
somebody cries

there never was a plan
I was along for the ride
you don’t have to believe me
but I got nothing left to hide
it was so long ago
we were all just kids
we never thought our lives
would be defined by it

people believe
what they want to believe
they don’t want reasons
they just go by how it seemed

Now I’m the only one left
it barely matters to me
they tell me I’ll be
judged by history
I could live with that
if I had the time
but the doctors tell me
that I’ve reached the
end of the line
