Song Description

Every time I tell the truth it gets me in trouble. I'm not trying to make people mad, just trying to be authentic. So I feel rejected when people reject my authentic truth...

Story Behind the Song

Honesty sounds good in principle, but in reality no one wants to hear the real truth

What a great arrangement and song lyrics. Good instrumentation and the mix is great. I really like the chord structure. Nice work

Lyrics

I'm not a bad guy, I just don't wanna play the game,
don't wanna have to tell you what you wanna hear.
I'm not a bad guy, I'm not tryin' to make you mad
But when I'm honest seems I always get blamed.

Everybody wants to hear
pretty little lies that make them feel good.
They don't want to have to deal with the truth
'cause it just might ruin the mood.

You say I've hurt your feelings
that no one's ever talked to you like that before
All I did was tell you what I really think.
Is the truth too hard for you to hear any more?

I'm not a bad guy, I just don't wanna play the game,
don't wanna have to tell you what you wanna hear.
I'm not a bad guy, I'm not tryin' to bring your down
But when I'm honest, seems it always ends the same.

I don't need to be popular, don't need anyone's approval
I'm not tryin' to be insensitive, but I just can't play by your rules
I don't wanna have to tiptoe around your issues just to be polite
Social acceptance is overrated, can't I speak the truth without causing a fight?

I'm not a bad guy, I just don't wanna play the game,
don't wanna have to tell you what you wanna hear.
I'm not a bad guy, I'm not tryin' to make you mad
But when I'm honest seems I always get blamed.

Why isn't it OK just to be me, authentically?
Am I unlovable as I am?
Do I have to be fake for you to give a damn?

I'm not a bad guy, I just don't wanna play the game,
don't wanna have to tell you what you wanna hear.
I'm not a bad guy, I'm not tryin' to make you mad
But when I'm honest seems I always get blamed.

I'm not a bad guy, I just don't wanna play the game,
don't wanna have to tell you what you wanna hear.
I'm not a bad guy, I'm not tryin' to make you sad
But when I'm honest, seems it always ends the same.
