Okay... I'll start over
Big premiere
5 am
Sunday morning

Light in the east
Got a new day
If you listen, you can hear it
Miles and miles away
The low, low rumble of the town waking up

With a light in the east
Night in the west
There's the moon, all pale and tired
Like she needs a little rest

Cause the night's been busy
You can hear it echo
Bouncing off the buildings like a ghost
Yeah, the night's been busy
Tearing up the city
Like a too-drunk guest who steals from his host

And leaves behind
Bleary eyes
The smell of sex
And whiskey lies
Then comes the...

Light in the east
Time I like best
It's better when the day still has its youth
Better to walk
Better to breathe
Better to see the truth!

And that was all that he said
I'm just repeating his words
You ever talk to the dead?
I only told you the truth

It happened just as I said
What good is lying to you?
I'd get the chair anyway
I only told you the truth

What do you want me to say?
I've tried the best I know how
I told you all that I know
I only told you the truth!

There's nothing more after that
There's nothing more that I knew
I have spent more of my life
I only told you the truth

The truth!
The truth, the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth
The truth, the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth, the... truth!
