I have a tale to tell

Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well

I was not ready for the fall

Too blind to see the writing on the wall
 
A man can tell a thousand lies

I've learned my lesson well

Hope I live to tell

The secret I have learned, 'til then

It will burn inside of me
 
I know where beauty lives

I've seen it once, I know the warm she gives

The light that you could never see

It shines inside, you can't take that from me
 
A man can tell a thousand lies

I've learned my lesson well

Hope I live to tell

The secret I have learned, 'til then

It will burn inside of me
 
The truth is never far behind

You kept it hidden well

If I live to tell

The secret I knew then

Will I ever have the chance again
 
If I ran away, I'd never have the strength

To go very far

How would they hear the beating of my heart

Will it grow cold

The secret that I hide, will I grow old

How will they hear

When will they learn

How will they know
 
A man can tell a thousand lies

I've learned my lesson well

Hope I live to tell

The secret I have learned, 'til then

It will burn inside of me
 
The truth is never far behind

You kept it hidden well

If I live to tell

The secret I knew then

Will I ever have the chance again
 
A man can tell a thousand lies

I've learned my lesson well

Hope I live to tell

The secret I have learned, 'til then

It will burn inside of me
