​The Truth Won't Set Us Free

This song is by Sara Watkins and appears on the album Young in All the Wrong Ways (2016).

I believe that he believes
Every word that he's been saying
That he's as true as he can be
But it never meant to me
That he was only playing
Cause the truth won't set us free

Too many ties that bind
To admit our love is vanished
Losing land that meets the rising sea
In a house we can't afford
We take on water and just keep bailing
Cause the truth won't set us free
Who's to say the way that life was meant to go?
Who's to say the line that we were meant to tow?
We are bound up in a world
That took twenty years of making
And the truth won't set us free

Our friends, they are not fooled
By the lies that we've been telling
In their eyes I see the sympathy
But there's no reason to confide
We're not buying what they're selling
Cause the truth won't set us free

Who's to say the way that life was meant to go?
They believe that we should start again
But they don't know

We are bound up in a world
That took twenty years of making
And the truth won't set us free
But we are bound up in a world
That took twenty years of making
And the truth won't set us free
