Tell Him the Truth
by Keri Hilson



If you've ever kept a secret
From the one you love
This is what it feels like

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 its no excuse but
Im only human and young at that
So i'm gonna make mistakes
That i hope you understand

Didn't see it comin
Wasn't on purpose
Baby i promise
I didnt mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me
You didnt deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

Ima tell him the truth
(when im ready to)
Tell him the truth
(some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(Thats 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
(thats what i gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(but not now ooh)

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 something was wrong
I was about to break open spill out everything
but something said
Keri wait, things are going great, what you gonna say
i dont know maybe something like

Didn't see it comin
Wasnt on purpose
Baby i promise
I didnt mean to hurt you
Will you forgive me
You didnt deserve this
I know it wasn't worth it

Ima tell him the truth
(when im ready to)
Tell him the truth
(some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(Thats 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
(thats what i gotta do)
Tell him the truth
(but not now ooh)

I feel less( than nothin)
Lower (than zero)
and tired (of frontin)
Gotta tell him the truth ooh
I feel less( than nothin)
Lower (than zero)
and i'm tired (of frontin)
Gotta tell him the truth ooh

Guess i've been waitin 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 thats what want

i gotta tell him the truth
(when im ready to)
Tell him the truth
(some how)
Gotta tell him the truth
(Thats 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
(thats what i gotta do)
i gotta
(but not now ooh)

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?
