Truth That Hurts

He tells you why he's late and where he's been 
When you know that he's been back in her arms again. 
You say that he led you along and then lied 
But what hurts even more is the fact you both tried. 

You both tried all you could to make it work. 
It's not the lies, it's the truth that hurts. 

He had a dream girl, you had a script in your mind. 
When he said you were the one, it was true at the time. 
When somebody says "I'll love you forever" 
That's a figure of speech, you should know better. 

You force a laugh and cough before you curse. 
It's not the lies, it's the truth that hurts. 

How can you say you've been betrayed 
In the bed that both of you made? 

Neither side wants to come out and break up first. 
It's not the lies, it's the truth that hurts.
