When The Truth Is... Lyrics

 

When The Truth Is... (当真相是...) - Hamilton Leithauser/Rostam Batmanglij

I was drowning at the night

 

With the last of the wine

 

And my story began to unwind

 

So I gathered all the shards

Of a glass from the boat

And I left from 17th street for Saint Martin

 

You're doing this to me now

 

All the time

 

Maybe I'm tired of running away

 

But not tonight

 

I've always been lonely

 

And you never hear the truth

 

Cause the truth is there's some distance but you listen

 

And I keep choking my way back into your heart

 

Mama told me don't give up baby but

 

Mama lied

 

Baby I'm from my scattered brain

 

But not tonight

 

I've always been lonely

 

And you never hear the truth

 

Yeah I've always been lonely

 

And you never hear the truth

 

In the graveyards in the harbor

 

In the beer halls in the park

 

I've been wandering under unforgiving stars

 

But the spirits in my heart

 

Don't persuade me anymore

 

And my echoes off the brick and mortar walls

 

When the truth is there's some distance but you listen

 

 

When the truth is there's some distance but you listen
