I lied to you, I've cheated too 
So what friend can I be 
But still you stick through thick and thin 
Hoping that you'll change me 
I towed the line then fell behind

The pressure grew and then I knew

It's the toughest thing to explain 
The truth 
Playing tricks with me again 
When the truth has to be told 
My blood runs hot and cold 
The truth is not my middle name 

You threw a rope attached with hope 
Way down into the sea 
Where lovers swim so deep within 
The tides of mystery 
For what it's worth I don't deserve 
A girl as strong as you 
You're worth much more than me I'm sure 
Accept this as the truth
