I Know the Truth

How did I come to this?
How did I slip and fall?
How did I throw half a lifetime away,
Without any thought at all?

This should have been my time.
It's over; it never began.
I closed my eyes to so much for so long,
And I no longer can.

I try to blame it on fortune,
Some kind of shift in a star.
But I know the truth and it haunts me,
It's flown just a little too far.
I know the truth and it mocks me.
I know the truth and it shocks me.
It's flown just a little too far.

Why do I want him still?
Why, when there's nothing there?
How to go on with the rest of my life,
To pretend I don't care?

This should have been my time.
It's over; it never began.
I closed my eyes to so much for so long,
And I no longer can

I try to blame it on fortune,
Some kind of twist in my fate.
But I know the truth and it haunts me,
I learned it a little too late.
I know the truth and it mocks me.
I know the truth and it shocks me.
I learned it a little too late.
Too late.
