Truth lyrics?

Postby StuWildheart » 22nd Jun 10, 02:40

Anyone have a set of lyrics for 'Truth'? Actually, the most annoying part for me is the first line, "And ever since I was a little boy, I would [something something something]". It's a bit obscured in the mix.

Cheers :D

Truth

And ever since I was a little boy
I will not be away from the lies
But I could never give in trying
To find myself a piece of honesty
And to prove I don’t need fools to get by
But I’m saying please slow down
Slow down
Let’s get it off the ground

All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth
Give me something to believe in that ain’t your lie

Maybe I’m unwise not to wish for a pocket of gold
Or my picture in rock magazines
But I want someone I can talk to
I don’t need record companies
[To] tell me how I should think
And no fair-weather friends saying my shit don’t stink
But I’m saying please slow down
Slow down
Let’s get it off the ground

All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth
Give me something to believe in that ain’t your lies

Maybe I’m unwise
Maybe I’m unwise
Maybe I’m unwise
Or is self-respect my lies?

All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth
All I want is some truth, baby
All I want is some truth

It's an early track that was never properly recorded/released.

A bit of it - a chunk of the last repeated chorus - appears on the end of the vinyl versions of Mondo Akimbo A-Go-Go.

ahhhh, thanks, one of those. . . bootlegs lol. Not the best track, so I can see why it was never finished/released, there are so many a million times better.

It always tickles me that this is something like the first 'true' Wildhearts song and the lyrics are already railing against record companies telling Ginger what to think. Where did it all go wrong eh? ;)
