Truth Be Told
Words and music by John Allee

Truth be told
I’m not that different from the average guy
I like the simple things
A moonlit sky
An easy laugh
A hand to hold

Truth be told
I tend to blend in with the same old crowd
I’m not mistrustful
But I’m rarely wowed
I wait it out
Before I’m sold

And truth be told
Love was a luxury that I could not afford
Borrowing kisses
Never earning them
Always owing more

And who am I to think my luck could ever change?
But I’ve been wrong before
How can I be sure now?

Truth be told
Though I have loved you for the longest time
I haven’t told you so
And maybe I’m
Still afraid
To be that bold

But truth be told
I’m not that young anymore
But I’m not that old
So if you’ll let me
Let the truth be told
