lyrics

Well,
my dishonesty might just be selfish,
but, sometimes, I'd rather avoid a battle
and spare our fragile peace
and lie.

Well,
I can be selfish and petty,
but if I don't give in
and tell you how I really feel,
is that a lie?
How could I
tell the truth
and be justified?

Cause sometimes honesty is arrogance--
the right to hurt your him or her.
But honesty is honest.
Honestly, if necessary, go ahead, hurt me.

I'll use honesty in self-defense,
but not just to assert
my own will over yours,
but only if I'm hurt.
Not to hurt.
If I'm hurt,
not to hurt.
