"Coming Clean" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
Found my place in the sun,
Lied my way there.
I look in your eyes
I'm coming clean.

I've made up my mind (I've made up my mind).
I've made up my mind (I've made up my mind).
To lie would be compromise
To lie would be to compromise and I won't try.

I'm sorry.
I hope you'll forgive me.
But what you want from me is
Is killing me.

I've made up my mind (I've made up my mind).
I've made up my mind (I've made up my mind).
To lie would be compromise
To lie would be to compromise and I won't try

    General Commenti hate to be a dick, but so many times in these comments i see people saying "oh this song means this to me" when it's obvious from the lyrics that the intent was very specific and completely different.

    this one, for example, is very simple. nosuchthing is closest: this could almost be about refusing to settle for friendship with an ex. but would you call that a "place in the sun"? hardly. this song is about breaking up with someone who you aren't as happy with as you'd hoped, even though they really want to stay with you.

    heck, the pretending to be content with friendship idea would apply a lot better to my life, but that just isn't what the song is about.
