lyrics

I’ve not told you everything;
I’m not proud to say.
But, patience, boy, it’s coming
in time…
When you asked me questions
I never lied to you,
but I kept from you his letters:
Graduation, valentines, I shut him out, you thought he’d died.

He sent postcards every birthday,
and he begged me to tear down this wall.
But I made sure that he’d never reach you.
I’m the reason why he never called.

San Francisco morning,
we walked through Russian Hill.
We stopped at an apartment,
my guilty conscience weighing down,
the whole façade came crashing down.

Fiction sometimes seems much neater,
but the truth will always shine through.
The hardest part is to ask forgiveness.
Oh, I hate what I’ve put you through:

the news of the truth of your roots.
I implied that he died,
but he’s here, he’s inside… Inside.

Fiction sometimes seems much neater,
but the truth will always shine through.
The hardest part is to ask forgiveness.
Oh, I hate what I’ve put you through.
