Yeah I lost my way
and tried to find
Somewhere else to stay
Well I looked all around
and finally found
you had
left to

All your secrets were told
coming out now
They're bought and sold
I hope it's not too late
But we found it hard
to stand up straight
Tell the truth today
Tell the truth today
Tell the truth today
I tried to tell
the Truth

Well I know
I'm outta reach
And all these songs
They're outta key
but I guess you just
don't know
You don't know shit
about me.

    General CommentMy favorite Earlimart song, by far.
    The duality of the music is so outstanding.

    It's just wow. Espinoza actually found a way to improve on Elliott Smith. He's got the same voice, similar lyrics, but an even more dynamic sound.

    General CommentA relationship that is over, because they both didn't tell the truth to each other. I guess the lyrics should be: 'And the songs, they are the key'. That's what I thought: the only times he tells the truth is trhough his songs. Really nice song, I like Part 2. too
