14. Coming Clean



Listen, babe I think it's time for me to come clean
I mean, I haven't been the most faithful
And I don't know how else to say this plain and simple
I've been cheating, believe me, this isn't easy 
Especially since you've been so good to me
The hardest thing I've ever done is telling you 'you're not the only one'
Just understand this, you need a man not an ignorant
And like a boy, I toyed with innocence
This double life ain't worth livin', I've given more to her and I apologize

And it's all part of the game
It's just the same ol' thing with a different name
And you can try and drown the pain
But we both swim too well to submerge ourselves
And I'm tired of the shame of being a fool too cool to maintain two dames
And all I need is time
Please forgive me, darlin' the blame's all mine

When I come home to you with open arms
And this smell of alcohol on my overcoat and stale cigarette smoke
I know you've been skeptical and I've played it off like you're delusional
But the fact is that I'm losing you
And I'm scared she doesn't want me
The way I need her to, no
She doesn't want me
The way I need her to
I'm pleading with the judge on my knees
God, please, make these charges go away

And it's all part of the game
It's just the same ol' thing with a different name
And you can try and drown the pain
But we both swim too well to submerge ourselves
And I'm tired of the shame of being a fool too cool to maintain two dames
And all I need is time
Please forgive me, darlin' the blame's all mine

Girl, I promise I will do my best to impress the jury
'Cos when the smoke settles
And one of us falls to the dirt, it was worth all of the hurt
And if not, let's cut our losses
'Cos you crossed the line, thinking I'd choose you over music?
That's just stupid
This whole situation's bogus, especially since I'm so focused
From the beginning to the end 'are we enemies or friends?'
Unfortunately, this is hopeless
Take my best and struggle home for you
Struggle, but I'm still here holding you
I'm tellin' the men, stand up
Put your hands up if you understand what I'm going through

And it's all part of the game
It's just the same ol' thing with a different name
And you can try and drown the pain
But we both swim too well to submerge ourselves
And I'm tired of the shame of being a fool too cool to maintain two dames
And all I need is time
Please forgive me, darlin' the blame's all mine
