Tell Me Something True - Tift Merritt

I woke up beside you in the night afraid.
When I was young I was always brave.
I was going where the wind was born,
I don't know where that is anymore.
Sometimes my heart feels so empty and mean,
No blanket could warm, no water could clean,
No direction on that same old wind
Could give me passage through.

Tell me something true.
Tell me something true.
I have lost my way but when I find it, I'll bring it to you.

I've heard about sunshine and I know about May,
But it doesn't always work out that way.
How do you give your heart back to the world
That's made a fool of you?

Tell me something true.
Tell me something true.
I have lost my way but when I find it, I'll bring it to you.

Time's gonna come here so remiss,
He will forget my words, forget my kiss.
If you want to love me, better take me like this,
I think the best that I can do is tell you something true.

I'll tell you something true.
I'll tell you something true.
I'm gonna lose my way but when I find it, I'll bring it to you.
