Truth and Lies

I've been thinking lately about the way that I speak to you
All those words I say, revealing my flaws
Is it disrespectful to be so open with all of my thoughts
Maybe you believe me when I say that I love you
Maybe you believe me when I say that I tried
But I don't want to see a burning fire when I look in your eyes
I've been hearing stories since I was a boy
I've been playing with my soul like a toy
Or better yet some leverage to secure my eternity
Now I realize it all was a ruse
Still it's hard to separate the lies from the truth
To find my precious pearl when all I see is vanity
I made You in my image and put You in a box
Then I defined You so You would fit in my thoughts
And then I wonder why my love grows cold so easily
All-consuming fire is what You said of Yourself
You said I AM and there is no-one else
You said You are, and You were, and You're always gonna be
I've been thinking lately about the weight of the truth and the lies
Stuck between a rock and a compromise
And I wonder which side is winning in this old fight
Now I know You don't see things the way that I do
And I wonder if the things I've learned about You are true
But I hope that in the end I'll be standing on Your right side
You said You are, and You were, and You're always gonna be
We treat you like our friend but we forget that You said that You were a king
