Truth Hurts


Produced By Terry Lewis & Jimmy Jam

Album: Confessions


Yeah umm
See it’s situations like this
That causes us players to get caught up (truth hurts)
In umm the truth
Yeah (truth hurts)
What you doing, where you been?
I paged you and you ain’t hit me back (truth hurts)
I been callin’ and I know you see my number on that caller I.D
Just listen to the words

[Verse 1]
(I got reason to believe that you’ve been foolin’ around)
The way you feel, the past you lived
The things you did
It don’t matter to me

For what it’s worth just don’t lie to me
Cause that ain’t what I need right now
Baby, everything we built on trust
You’re tearing it down

Cause I know the truth hurts (truth hurts)

Tell me the truth now
Whatcha been doing and who
Ya been doing it with (truth hurts)
Where you been going and
How you been putting ya thing down (truth hurts)
Whatever youz was working I
Hope that it was worth it baby (truth hurts)
I got reason to believe that you been foolin around

[Verse 2]
Girl, I’m really tryin hard to understand
I want to move on and put it in the past

Cause, you claim that you ain’t doin’ nothing
Must be my insecurities

It’s got the best of me right now
What I know I can’t hold it inside of me
It’s gonna drive me insane


Bah bah bah bah baah
Bah bah bah bah baah
Bah bah bah bah baah
Bah bah bahbah
Sing it with me now
Bah bah bah bah baah
Bah bah bah bah baah
Bah bah bah bah baah
Bah bah bahbah
I can’t hold on (truth hurts)

[Verse 3]
[Now wait a minute
Oh, listen babe (truth hurts)
The truth is I've got the secret
I've been keeping from you baby
Cause I know that you
Will tear up the place
Punch me in my face
Pull the hot grits out

I think you need to sit down oh
I been blaming you
When I'm the one doing wrong
I'm gonna go on
My guilty conscience
Is the real reason I wrote this song
