Something Pretty Something True

 

I could use a little confession 

Let it loose from your tongue 

No need for discretion 

Do not leave this thing unsung 

We're scared and we tiptoe 

We are timid and too careful 

We try not to move the air 

Or to say how much we care 

Tell me something pretty, tell me something true 

 

I could use a little caring 

Hold me in your arms 

When I feel my heart is tearing 

Will you bandage up the parts 

We are carbon and dust 

We're so strange in our ways 

Making circles in the sand 

Weighing options with no plans 

Tell me something pretty tell me something true 

 

I could use a little direction 

Offer me your hand 

Shower me with some affection 

Let me know just where I stand 

This is worth everything you or I could ever do 

Are you so brave when I look at you and say 

Tell me something pretty, tell me something true
