The Ugly Truth

[font=Lucida Sans Unicode,Lucida Grande]His aesthetics catch your eye,  
His charm catches your heart  
But to him, a thing...  
is all that you are.    
   
You see, he's a pretty lie in disguise,  
And I'm the ugly truth, and you...  
You look away,    
While I see beauty outside and in too.    
   
How many times will you let him hurt you?  
How much can your heart take?  
You see, he can fake all day...  
But, how much can you take before you break?  
   
he lights the gas,    
But I, I blow out the match,  
He widens the wound...  
But I, I apply the patch.  
   
He's a comfortable lie,  
And I'm the ugly truth...  
When will you open your eyes,  
And see, that I know the real you?
