The Truth Is I Lied (LP Version)

The Truth Is I Lied (LP Version)

Billy Joe Royal

It's been twenty-four hours
Since you walked away
If I knew where to call you
I know just what I'd say

I'd tell you, I'm sorry I hurt you
And I know that I went too far this time
When I said, I don't love you
The truth is I lied

I should have been more careful
With your tender heart
When I said all those mean things
Words that tore you apart

Like I don't want you, I don't need you
I didn't mean it, it was only my pride
When I said, I don't love you
The truth is I lied

Oh, baby, come back and love me
Make everything right
When I said, I don't love you
The truth is I lied
When I said, I don't love you
The truth is I lied
