The Truth

James Blunt

It's a long, lonely road
That I've walked on my own
Never thought I'd end up in this place
I went fast, I went slow
Then I gave up all hope
‘Cause I know, either way, it's the same

And I'm not tryna find somebody
‘Cause no one else but you will do
Yeah, the real thing is gone
Now I wish I could hold you

I wish that all of these days and nights
Trying to chase all these empty highs
But I had to go through my worse
So I know that I just needed you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

As I look out at the morning Sun
There's no escape from the things I've done
And out of everything I've lost
Now I know that I just needed you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And darling, that's the truth
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

I don't lie anymore
In a heap on the floor
‘Cause I'm clear on the road I must take

And I'm not tryna find somebody
‘Cause no one else but you will do
I'm getting close, stumbling over everything I need to say to you

I wish that all of these days and nights
Trying to chase all these empty highs
But I had to go through my worse
So I know that I just needed you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

As I look out at the morning Sun
There's no escape from the things I've done
And out of everything I've lost
Now I know that I just needed you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And darling, that's the truth
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And darling, that's the truth
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

I was searching, Heavenly Father
If you're out there, leave a light on
‘Cause the distance is getting wider
And I know I've gotta find ya

I wish that all of these days and nights
Trying to chase all these empty highs
But I had to go through my worse
So I know that I just needed you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

As I look out at the morning Sun
There's no escape from the things I've done
And out of everything I've lost
Now I know that I just needed you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And darling, that's the truth
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And darling, that's the truth
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And darling, that's the truth
