The Truth

James Arthur

It was good to be there in the bright lights, ooh
But I lost good friends under the spotlight
Woah, imagine if everybody knew your name
But they had nothing nice to say, nothing nice to say

It was good to be living up the high life, woah
But the comedowns harder in the headlights
Woah, everybody tells you should play the game
But there's only you to play, there's only you to play

But I tried

I set fire to the glory
I set fire to the dream
I set fire to the only thing
That lead me from the streets

Don't tell me it's over, cause I don't want to believe
'Cause now I've opened my eyes and I have found a way to breathe

The truth sets me free

I broke my back to make a breakthrough, mmm
I lost my mind, look what it came to
Oh I had to lose it all so I could understand, woah
I was just a boy in the shadow of a man

I set fire to the glory
I set fire to the dream
I set fire to the only thing
That lead me from the streets

Don't tell me it's over, cause I don't want to believe
'Cause now I've opened my eyes and I have found a way to breathe

Oh, the truth sets me free
Oh, the truth sets me free

I set fire to the glory
I set fire to the dream
I set fire to the only thing
That lead me from the streets

Don't tell me it's over, cause I don't want to believe
'Cause now I've opened my eyes and I have found a way to breathe

Oh, the truth sets me free
Oh, the truth sets me free
Oh, the truth sets me free
It sets me free
