Truth Will Out (Ballad Of Melissa And Remy)

This song is by Chuck Prophet and appears on the album Night Surfer (2014).

Mellissa always said she had a right to be wrong
Maybe that's the reason she lied
Remy said that he was only looking for a friend
The night they asked him up inside

No one knows exactly what went down in that room
How the truth came out or from whose lips
Sometimes it builds, like a dam and it bursts
Other times it stumbles and slips

Till it all comes out - Go on and jump and shout -
But it's gonna take a war to stop it

Remy said a scar ran down the side of his face
The cop said, "Son, that isn't enough"
Well, he called himself the Greek but he only spoke French
We met him after hours at the club

Mellissa said she fainted at the sight of it all
She said Remy had to carry me out
"See, I'd never seen a gun up close in person before'
And the words like honey poured from her mouth

Till it all comes out - Go on and jump and shout -
But it's gonna take a war to stop it

Remy gave a statement with his fingers crossed
He said, "l hope this means that I can still vote"
When they brought Melissa in, she didn't look at him once
She hung her head and she read from her notes

The Greek faced the camera - didn't utter a word
He couldn't speak or even move his head
The prosecutor stood - cracked a joke and he smiled
Said, "You don't know it, son, but you're already dead"

Till it all comes out - Go on and jump and shout -
But it's gonna take a war to stop it

"I may never even get to see you again"
Remy said; "I ain't done nothin"
Tighten up your panties, boy
Loosen up your wig
You better pray nobody finds you

Now Mellissa's got a family and a government job
And no one ever mentions the past
Sometimes she lies awake in the middle oi the night
Wondering how long can this fairy tale last

Me, I took a train to the border that night
L spend a little time in Berlin
Sometimes I think I'll give Mellissa a call
But I wouldn't know where to begin

Till it all comes out - Go on and jump and shout -
But it's gonna take a war to stop it

Till it all comes out - Go on and jump and shout -
But it's gonna take a war to stop it
