i'm not asking for that much
i only want the truth
when you tell me how you feel
i'm not gonna play the games
that make you feel like shit
i'm not asking for the world
how many times
must we tell each other lies
and separate our lives
i wonder what went wrong
i'm not askin' for that much
just open honesty
i'm not askin' for the world
when were young
it's only fun
it's just the chances that you take
now we're grown up
and we're fucked up
and we make the same mistakes
we keep repeating the same beating
like it's not a choice to make
and then we're lying
and denying what we won't refuse to change
i feel like i've been through so much shit
so many dysfunctional relationships
that i don't know what to feel anymore
i'm not asking for that much
just be real with me
i'm not asking for the world

    General CommentHe's just saying to someone. "Cut the fucking bullshit and level with me." Wether it's a friend, a love interest or hell, even a parent is ambigious, but given Strung Out's penchant for fucked up love relationships, I'd say it's a couple thing.

    Great song

    General CommentIt's obviously about the singer wanting his love interest to be honest, because he sure is
