If the truth be told,
You were in the bedroom
Trying to find a pillow
With a little more headroom
Trying to find a place
Where nobody could find you again

And if the truth be told,
I was on the porch
Trying to fight a fire with a propane torch
Thinking about the color
Of the leaves before they fall
In the fall

And if the truth be told,
Things got weird
All my friends told me I should grow a beard
Can't do that
Don't quit your day job

If the truth be told
He was out of line
Trying to steal your heart before you stole mine
Trying to make a mountain from a molehill

If the truth be told (Knock, knock, who is it?)
Ship's goin' down, do you wanna go with it?
Either way, I'm splitting town ASAP

Wanna know the truth?
I was thinkin' bout ships
In the Halifax Harbor
'fore they blew the city to bits in 1917

If the truth be told
When we were getting drunk
I was trying on clothes
From your mothball trunk
Tryin' to figure out what it feels like
To step inside your shoes

But if the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
If the truth be told
