Telling

Tell me what you’ve done, and I’ll tell you who you are.
Uncover all those sins you thought you had forgot,
Still I can only ever tell who you’ve become so far.

The thing that almost happened when you got into that car
Was close enough a thing that you can hardly bear the thought.
Tell me what you fear, and I’ll tell you who you are.

Keep on with dicing and with dancing, despite the threat of war.
You could lose everything you have, even if you have a lot.
Still I can only ever tell who you’ve become so far.

The horoscopes all claim to read the future in the stars.
They say that life’s a story, and yours surely has a plot.
Tell me what you want, and I’ll tell you who you are.

All the lies and all the stories that you made up at the bar
Will never really matter even after you get caught.
Still I can only ever tell who you’ve become so far.

Despite your youth you’ve earned all of those scars.
Don’t say it wasn’t worth it, though you wish you hadn’t fought.
Tell me your regrets, and I’ll tell you who you are.
Still I can only ever tell who you’ve become so far.
