Something True

Harry Nilsson

Something true to show you what I am to you
Something real to cause your heart to rush with love
And cause your mouth to rush to mine and make your eyes
Ignore what isn't real

But all my life I've failed to take advantage of my time
And time is moving faster than the eye can see
If we could only tell each other every other day
There'd never be a reason to be leaving


Just something to hold on to when we are both afraid
Something to believe in when we think we've got it made
Some things never change, the doubt that lingers in your mind
Sometimes when you're down and out you leave the truth behind

Just something real to show that I still feel.
