It Doesn't Make It True

We can wait for the perfect moment
But I say we're in it
And I'll take all the punches I'm thrown
If it's what I should do, do, do
I want to be good
But saying I do doesn't make it true

As if repeating my questions
And shrugging off suggestions
Ever got me far

Boys to the back and men to the front of the room
And if you think that you've got something missing
You probably do
I know that acceptance comes first
And if I want to change then I've got to work
Just 'cause I say I do, doesn't make it true

Courage is an acquired trait
So we've got to admit that
We appreciate gained strengths
But now we're not nice to look at
I've always though that I do
But saying I do, doesn't make it true

As if excusing my actions
And well-timed nervous laughing
Ever got me far

Boys to the back and men to the front of the room
And if you think that you've got something missing
You probably do
I know that acceptance comes first
And if I want to change then I've got to work
Just 'cause I say I do, doesn't make it true

My problem: sinned enough for a lifetime
Take him to the lake it'll drown him
Like I never found him
So I can't apologize
Especially not when I know that it's alright
I can trust myself
To be playin' em carefully
Why do I think I'm always right?

As if excusing my actions
And well-timed nervous laughing
Ever got me far
No it never got me far

Boys to the back and men to the front of the room
And if you think that you've got something missing
You probably do
I know that acceptance comes first
And if I want to change then I've got to work
Just 'cause I say I do, doesn't make it true
