THE TRUTH – Go. Go to the mountain if you must. Go to the burning bush, if it would ease your troubled mind. I will be prepared to stay behind? I know you better than you think I do. Do not worry, dear. This is why I fell in love with you. The man in the looking glass is looking back at you at last. You cannot hide from the truth because the truth is all there is. You cannot hide from the truth because the truth is all there is. You cannot hide from the truth because the truth is all there is you cannot hide. If happy times are, too rare it is a pity dear; we cannot erase the things we have seen. So disappear, vanish if you wish just go before you are swallowed up by bitterness. And the truth is you can’t hide from the truth, and the truth hurts because the truth is all there is I realized some time ago that I would have to let you go. May not be true to say that you will return one day but in your present state, you may as well not be here at all. You wear a thin disguise; it is from yourself you hide just take a look at us; we are heading for a fall.
