"The Truth" as written by Ashley Monroe and Brett James Cornelius....
Tell 'em all I'm on vacation
Say I went to visit friends
That you ain't seen or heard from me in quite a while
When they ask you where Ive been
Tell 'em I'm out on the west coast where it don't ever rain
And I'm probably doing fine

[Chorus]
Just don't tell 'em I've gone crazy
That I'm still strung out over you
Tell 'em anything you want to
Just don't tell 'em all the truth
Don't tell 'em all the truth

Tell 'em all I'm out in Vegas
Throwing every dollar I have away
Tell 'em that I must be into something bad for me cause
I sure lost a lot of weight
Tell 'em I'm out on the road with some old Rock n Roll Band
Living like a Gypsy King

[Chorus]

The truth is that I'm asking you to lie
We both know that it ain't right
If you ever loved me please
Baby have mercy on me

Tell 'em anything you want to
Just don't tell 'em all the truth
Don't tell 'em all the truth
I still need you
Yeah baby thats the truth
I still love you
Yeah baby thats the truth

    General CommentHe sings, "I love you" a few more times at the end. The meaning is obvious...an inability to get over someone you fell deeply in love with.
