"The Truth" as written by Benji Madden, John Feldmann and Joel Madden....
So here we are
We are alone
There's weight on your mind
I want to know the truth
If this is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real

I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth from you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth

So this is you
Your talkin' to me
You found a million ways to let me down
So I'm not hurt when your not around
I was blind
But now I see
This is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real

I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth from you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth

I know that this will break me
I know that this might make me cry
You gotta say what's on your mind
On your mind
I know that this will hurt me
And break my heart so inside
I don't want to live this lie

I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth from you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I don't care no more
No
Just give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Cause I don't care no more
Give me the truth
Cause I don't care no more
No
Just give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Cause I don't care no more
No

    My InterpretationYou all have it wrong, what are you, retarded?

    Obviously he's ending/ended a relationship with a girl (or rather she's ending it with him). He's wondering if she ever actually loved him or was just bullshitting him for whatever reason. He doesn't care what the answer is, as long as it's the truth. If she says "I only wanted you for your body" or something then he would be hurt, but would overall feel better just knowing.

    Now stop posting fucktarded comments, thanks.

    General Comment"You've found a million ways to let me down
    So I'm not hurt when you're not around"

    i think she is trying to slowly make the relationship fade away without letting the truth be known. Just letting it die with time...

    General CommentI reckon he's singing about the moment when he knows his lover is cheating/fallen out of love/etc, and he finally confronts her about it.
    "There's weight on your mind" there's something she's not telling him
    "But now I say, this is how you feel / Just say it to me, if this was ever real"
    Hope there's no mistakes in the lyrics, it's my first contribution :D

    General CommentThe singer`s voice seems a bit country-ish at times at the beginning, but oh well. I find this song quite sad, and can be related to by most people.

    I think it`s about a breakup between two people, taken from the dumpee`s point of view, "the truth" being how she/he feels about the relationship, which would be that she/he wants it to end.

    General CommentOMG Joel poured all his emotion into this song! I bet this is the song he was talking about when he said in an interview, down here in Canada, when he said that during the recording process, there were some songs that he had to record alone because he got a little TOO emotion (crying and such)

    General Commentdamn good song. really hits me hard. i had a gf that always seemed to hide something. i broke me down. then the truth came out. then i didn't care no more.

    Give me the truth, even if it hurts,
    I don't care no more, no
    Just give me the truth, give me the truth
    Coz I don't care no more
    Give me the truth
    Coz I don't care no more, no
