about

'The Truth' is a love ballad that strikes a chord with its melancholic sound and a distinct earthy vocal identity.

lyrics

The Truth


I switched on the gas

Something is cooking

Without a spoon

What the hell am I supposed to do


The table is laid

Salt in the middle

A cloth with holes and stains

As I wait for you


It is my ambition

To ask you no questions

I don't care where you're coming from

I don't care what you do

I want to start over

Without any fear

Without any hope

Don't give me hope

I want the truth


The clock never worked

Always on seven

If this were true

Then I would never, ever have to move


I fancy this meal

Without any dishes

Maybe that's because because

I have nothing to lose


It is my ambition

To ask you no questions

I don't care where you're coming from

Don't care what you do

I want to start over

Without any fear

Without any hope

Don't give me hope

I want the truth


Once again, I'm alone

Once again, I hear me

Once again, I live

My truth


It is my ambition

To ask you no questions

I don't care where you're coming from

I don't care what you do

I want to start over

Without any fear

Without any hope

Don't give me hope

I want the truth.
