Truth Lyrics

Taylor:
From the time we're very young,
We're told the truth is something precious
Something noble, something regal
It will lift us like the wind
And give us wings like the eagle

All:
But that's the furthest thing from the truth

Taylor:
From the time we're very young
We're taught the truth is like a beacon
Something holy, like a spirit
It will free is from our fears
The closer we get near it

All:
But that's the furthest thing from the truth

Brooklyn:
Did your heart belong to someone
Other than my mother?
Don't I have a right to know
Have I a sister or a brother

All:
Don?t I have a right to know?
Don't I have a right to know?

Brooklyn:
Huh?!?!?

Taylor:
Oh, the truth is but a flame
That engulfs the butterfly
It destroys all things of beauty
Keep your illusions and your lies

All:
Walk out that door

From the time we're very young
From the time we're very young
From the time we're very, very,
Very, very, very, very, very,
Very, Very, very, young?

Brooklyn:
>From the time that I was young
I thought the truth was like a mirror
I wanna face it, I wanna feel it
I wanna find out who I am
But like a coward you conceal it

All:
But that?s the furthest thing from the truth

Taylor(spoken):
Look, I don?t know you; you don't know me. You know nothing of me!

Brooklyn(spoken):
Well, I know this?

(sung)You left a woman and a child
Have you no sense of shame?
Were you so young and selfish
It's my mother that you blamed
What courage does it take
To look me in the eye?
You can't bury truth in silence
Like a tree it's gonna rise

All:
Like a tree it's gonna rise
Like a tree it's gonna rise
Like a tree it's gonna rise
Like a tree it's gonna rise

Taylor:
The truth is but a wind
That robs the autumn from the trees
It leaves things empty like this needle
No, the truth won't set you free

All:
So walk out that door

From the time we're very young
From the time we're very young
From the time we're very, very,
Very, very, very, very, very,
Very, Very, very, young?

Brooklyn and Taylor:
From the time we're very young

All:
We're taught the truth is all that matters

Brooklyn:
It gives you strength
It makes you wise

Taylor:
But in truth it only shatters
So don't look into my eyes
Don't you look into my eyes
