08. Truth Or Consequences

Real Life Conversations
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

The TV said just make sure youíre old enough
And let your feelings tell you when itís right
What went wrong? She thought it was really love
Now she wonders why she just canít sleep at night
She knew the rules but they were too old fashioned
Was it worth the price she has to pay

Itís either truth or consequences, thereís no other way
Push truth aside, the other takes itís place
Well, you can close your eyes but that wonít make it go away
The truth or consequences must be faced

The headlines say our worldís in a lot of pain
Hurt from all the selfishness and greed
What went wrong? Like sheep all have gone astray
Weíll reap what we sow, donít be deceived
His truthís been given and itís there before us
Written on the page and in our hearts

Itís either truth or consequences, thereís no other way
Push truth aside, the other takes itís place
Well, you can close your eyes but that wonít make it go away
The truth or consequences must be faced

As sure as God made the sun to shine
He made the rules we must all live by
He loved us too much to leave us alone
To our own devices

Itís either truth or consequences, thereís no other way
Push truth aside, the other takes itís place
Well, you can close your eyes but that wonít make it go away
The truth or consequences must be faced

written by Steven Curtis Chapman c 1988 Sparrow Song/New Wings Music (a div. of Lorenz Creative Services)/Greg Nelson Music (BMI)
