"The Truth Is" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
Just a list of things I'd do if I could fly
Oh I would fly straight to the moon
To bring the sands back here to you
And we'd make castles where we'd spend our days
And rooms that last eternities
And perfect cracks get fixed with ease

And if it falls apart faster than we had planned
We'll plan for something else
Doesn't matter if it's raining or it's dark
You'll be my something else
The only else cared for you are

And if I prayed for one more thing it would be time
Just a second I could pause
Just one more minute at exhaust
'Cause on the list of everything I need
There's air but first there's you and me
There's love and love your everything
'Cause I've had dreams where we collected
All the clocks and put them all to bed
Because here inside this moment there is us
There need be nothing else
This is something I've wished for

If I had to walk the earth a thousand times
I'd do it 'cause I love you
Because if you said I had to
I would know it to be true
And I would spend every night under the stars
To memorize the patterns
Both our heartbeats would make
It might stop me from shaking
And the truth is
I'd be shameless
And I'd be grateful
For this one chance
For our first dance
And you are, you are, you are, you are, you are the one

If I had to walk the earth a thousand times
I'd do it 'cause I love you
Because if you said I had to
I would know it to be true
And I would spend every night under the stars
To memorize the patterns
Both our heartbeats would make
It might stop me from shaking
And the truth is
I'd be shameless
And I'd be grateful
For this one chance
For our first dance
And you are, you are, you are, you are, you are the one

    General CommentTry having your boyfriend play this for you.. it's truly an amazing and indescribable feeling. He'd told me times before that he wanted to be with me forever, but when he played this song for me, I truly felt it, and I also found one of my new favorite songs of all time. This is a dedication, in a sense, of one's heart, saying, "I'll love you forever and nothing will ever change that." (:
