about

This song is about re-connecting with someone from my past who I thought knew me on a level that no one else did, because they knew where I came from... but then they quickly showed me that they didn't really know me at all -- just the idea of me. The t-shirt in this song is real. :)

lyrics

You said, “Promise you'll always tell me the truth”
But you didn't say if that rule also applied to you
Maybe you meant it at the time
But the future has a way of changing its mind

I was so ready to
Fill in all the blanks of you
Color in your courage
Turn you into the man I knew
I'd rather fill in the blanks of you

Maybe it's ok if the details fray around the edges
Maybe it's just that I don't want to be alone forever
Maybe we all need something to believe
And so we chalk up the pain to the benefit of doubting

I was so ready to
Fill in the blanks of you
Color in your courage
Turn you into the man I knew
But every adjective I could use
Never carried the burden of proof
And now I know I didn't want to know the truth
I'd rather fill in the blanks of you
So I could turn you into who I wanted you to be

They say if you haven't heard, you've heard
They say no news is all the news you need
But I never imagined that I would be the one waiting

You said, “I'd rather see you bare your soul”
But you didn't really say it, it was on a t-shirt that you wore
