The Confessor Lyrics

The Confessor - Joe Walsh

Written by:Joe Walsh

If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well

 

What you see is only on the surface

 

When you try to see the meaning hidden underneath

 

The measure of the depth can be deceiving

 

The bottom has a rocky reputation

 

You can feel it in the distance the deeper down you stare

 

From up above it's hard to see but you know when you're there

 

On the bottom words are shallow

 

On the surface talk is cheap

 

You can only judge the distance by the company you keep

 

In the eyes of the Confessor

 

In the eyes of the Confessor

There's no place you can hide

 

You can't hide from the eyes (of the Confessor)

 

Don't you even try

 

In the eyes of the Confessor

 

You can't tell a lie

 

You cannot tell a lie (to the Confessor)

 

Strip you down to size

 

Naked as the day that you were born

 

Naked as the day that you were born

 

Take all the trauma drama comments

The guilt and doubt and shame

 

The "what ifs" and "if onlys"

 

The shackles and the chains

 

The violence and aggression

 

The pettiness and scorn

 

The jealousy and hatred

 

The tempest and discord

 

 

AND GIVE IT UP
