As if I knew.

This is a love song to my ex-wife, written 10 years after her death.

Used to speak my mind a lot, fearlessly declaim
Careless of how cruel that could be
Pushing truth on everyone, an elaborate game
'cause you know, the truth will set you free
Set you free

Never looked inside myself to find confusion there
Lies that I whispered into my own ear
Blind and deaf to everything outside my point of view
Hid behind walls made of glass that everyone saw through
All but me saw through

Now I hold my tongue a lot, diplomatically
Mindful of the damage I can do
Speaking out of anger, fear or jealousy
That's not the path to see us through
See us through

What's the truth to me and you? It's more than just one side
Conversation made of love and tender compromise
Kindness, patience, gratitude, generosity
All of these and love my darling, will set our truth free
Set it free
