Billy Joe Royal — The Truth Is I Lied lyrics

It's been twenty-four hours
Since you walked away
If I knew where to call you
I know just what I'd say
I'd tell you I'm sorry I hurt you
And I know that I went too far this time
When I said I don't love you
The truth is I lied
I should have been more careful
With your tender heart
When I said all those mean things
Words that tore you apart
Like I don't want you, I don't need you
I didn't mean it, it was only my pride
When I said I don't love you
The truth is I lied
Oh, Baby, come back and love me
Make everything right
When I said I don't love you
The truth is I lied
When I said I don't love you
The truth is I lied
