"Truth" as written by Kele Okereke, Matt Tong, Russell Lissack and Gordon Moakes....
It was the truth
That fell from these lips
It blinded us
And then the darkness left

So I am yours now
Respectfully
I am yours now
Truthfully

It burnt the stain
Left on my mind
Our hearts, our hearts, they beat
A quarter tone apart

Cause I am yours now
Respectfully
(Why can’t I do it?
You complete me)
I am yours now
Truthfully
(Why can’t I do it?
You complete me)

Our kind is hard to find
And if it will be
It will be with you

I am yours now
Respectfully
(Why can’t I do it?
You complete me)
I am yours now
Truthfully
(Why can’t I do it?
You complete me)

    It will be with you

    I am yours now

    General CommentBloc Party's love songs always tend to be my favorite, and this is no exception. One of the album's finest.
