Jeff had an exgirlfriend that kept trying to contact him a year after their breakup. We were sitting on the computer responding to the letter and Derek started singing the words as he dictated what to write back. "The truth is" was the subject of the em

Lyrics

"Truth Is"
by Us Minus Them

Truth is I painted my eyes black,
The night you said that you were moving on.
How could you walk out of my life?
Those words sunk into my chest,
Lost all my breath, my sight and couldn't speak.
There was nothing left to say,
Now that I am moving on.

Chorus:
The truth is, you pushed me to the limit.
The truth is, I should've always seen it,

But I was so blind.

What seemed like centuries,
Since we last spoke and I couldn't see,
The look upon your face,
When you said that it was me that you disgrace.
Those words sunk into my chest,
Lost all my breath, my sight and couldn't speak.
There was nothing left to say,
Now that I am moving on.

Chorus

But I was, why was I so blind?

Now out here on my own,
Hoping for a place,
Where I can call my home.
