About “The Truth” by Make Believe Friends (Lyrics by Mindy Milburn)

“The Truth” is about the moment you realize you are enough exactly how you are, and the empowerment that it brings to be able to speak your mind, question the world around you and confront difficult situations.  And in return you want the same from others around you- for them to be honest, upfront, their true-selves.

I don’t wanna have to play participate in this game, this charade
but either way there’s no escape
I don’t wanna have to choose or confuse win or lose
I’m my muse and any offer I can refuse

The idea of being comfortable just being ourselves, unentangled from the pressures of modern society gives the opportunity to be as pure and free as the ocean air. It is The Truth.

About the production:

“The Truth” by Make Believe Friends was written by: (lyrics) Mindy Milburn; (music) Gabe Halcovich & Laura Espinoza, Produced by Greg Karas & Laura Espinoza.

“The Truth” lyrics:

I don’t wanna have to rush anymore,
take my time, work my style,
make’em smile like never before
I don’t wanna have to fake
double take, imitate
make no mistake that I’m gonna even the score
I don’t wanna have to play participate in this game this charade
but either way there’s no escape
I don’t wanna have to choose or confuse win or lose
I’m my muse and any offer I can refuse

Na na, na na na na
Na na, na na na na

All I ever wanted to feel
a touch a breeze
something that’s real
all I ever wanted to see
is the truth being handed back to me

I’m not gonna hold my tongue anymore when someone,
Just for fun makes a mess that can’t be undone.
I’m not gonna turn away, make believe it’s ok,
I’ll tell’ em straight, call it out when a spade’s a spade.
I don’t want to turn my trust into lust I might bust a fake is fake,
but I’m good at hiding disgust.  
I don’t wanna make amends play pretend to no end
you’re not my friend and you don’t care about me in the end.

Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

All I ever wanted to feel
a touch a breeze
something that’s real
all I ever wanted to see
is the truth being handed back to me

Now I know better than ever before,
In life you gotta break down doors
Can’t please’ em all that’s what lessons are for,
Let the truth hurt ’em even more, than your words…

Show me the truth show me the truth?
What is the truth, what is the truth?
Show me the truth….
