Tell Him the Truth
by Keri Hilson



If you thought that I was perfect
Boy you were wrong
I'm far from that
There's one thing that I've done to you
That I regret, and
Look, I know it's no excuse, but
I'm only human and young at that
So I'm gonna make mistakes
that I hope you understand

[Chorus 1]
Didn't see it comin'
Wasn't on purpose
Baby, I promise
I didn't mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me?
You didn't deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

[Chorus 2]
I'm a tell him the truth
(When I'm ready to)
Tell him the truth
(Some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(That's what I gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now)
Gotta tell him the truth
(Just wait a little bit)
Tell him the truth
(He couldn't handle it)
Tell him the truth
(That's what i gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(But not now, oh)

Didn't see when I had tears rolling down my face
I turned my back
It was heavy on the tongue
And I knew that you knew that something was wrong
I was about to break open and spill out everything
But something said,
"Keri, wait, things are going great, what you gonna say?"
I don't know, maybe something like

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]

I feel less (than nothing)
Lower (than zero)
And tired (of frontin')
Gotta tell him the truth, ooh
I feel less (than nothing)
Lower (than zero)
And tired (of frontin')
Gotta tell him the truth, ooh

Guess I've been waiting for the stars to align
There's no perfect time
I gotta tell him the truth
Cause it's hard to build the truth on a lie
And if that's what I want
I gotta tell him the truth

[Chorus 2]

Baby, I'm crying, I'm crying
Ooh
Gotta tell him the truth
I know what I gotta do, I know what i gotta do
Tell him the truth
I'm so scared and I'm sitting here all alone
Tell him the truth, I gotta tell you
What do I do?
