Truth Is…

Truth is…

I’m just not interested
I just don’t know how to say it.
I don’t know how to let the words roll of my tongue
I’m afraid they will hit you harder than the loudest Lambeg drum

Truth is…

I just don’t see you that way
I just don’t know how to say it.
I don’t know how to let my true feelings, or lack thereof, unfold
I don’t know if they might be among the harshest words you’ve ever been told

Truth is…

I just don’t feel for you like that
In.
That.
Way.
You know.
I just don’t know how to say it
I don’t know how to let the truth find the boss in me
I don’t know how to deliver the words… they are lost in me.

Truth is…

I’m just not that into you.

Sorry.
