​Tell Me Something True

This song is by Tift Merritt and appears on the album Another Country (2008).

Woke up beside you in the night afraid.
When I was young I was always brave.
I was going where the wind was born,
I don’t know where that is anymore.
Sometimes my heart feels so empty and mean,
No blanket could warm, no water could clean,
No direction on that same old wind
Could give me passage through.

Tell me something true.
Tell me something true.
Oh I have lost my way but when I find it, I’ll bring it to you.

Hey I know about sunshine and I know about May,
But it doesn’t always work out that way.
How do you give your heart back to the world
Now that it's made a fool of you?

Tell me something true.
Tell me something true.
Oh I have lost my way but when I find it, I’ll bring it to you.

Time’s gonna come here so remiss,
He will forget my words, forget my kiss.
You want to love me, better take me like this,
I think the best that I can do is tell you something true.

I’ll tell you something true.
Oh I will lose my way but when I find it, I’ll bring it to you.
I’ll bring it to you.
I'm gonna lose my way
I'm gonna lose my way
But when I find it, oh baby, I’ll bring it to you.

Tell me something true
Just tell me something true
Tell me something true
Just tell me something true
I'll tell you something true
Tell me something true
