And I saw everything I needed to
And I heard nothing that I wanted to
And everything you said to me
Despite my doubts, I tried to believe
You tell me when to run away
But then you leave me all alone again

What I felt back then isn't true tonight
And what you said to me doesn't make it right
So if I don't seem genuine to you
Then maybe you should try to be good, be true
Be good, be true

And I said everything I should to you
And I kept quiet when I wanted to
Speak up, speak up
But never will I have to bite my tongue or fake a smile anymore
You tell me when to run away
But then you leave me all alone again

What I felt back then isn't true tonight
And what you said to me doesn't make it right
So if I don't seem genuine to you
Then maybe you should try to be good, be true
Be good, be true

You left me standing there that night
A pen in hand I'd used to write you a letter
That would be my voice that you refused to hear
So take these as my parting words, and sing to them, my dear

What I felt back then isn't true tonight
And what you said to me doesn't make it right
So if I don't seem genuine to you
Then maybe you should try to be good, be true
Be good, be true
