Don’t Kill the Messenger

Don’t kill the messenger,
let the heart speak free.
Don’t kill the messenger,
there’s no reason to blame me.

You said you wanted honesty –
you said you wanted truth –
whether it was right or wrong,
sometimes it’s not so smooth.
Now my phone is never ringing
My texts get no reply –
Don’t punish the one who told you
about facts you can’t deny.

It didn’t paint a pretty picture
It wasn’t a charming scene –
you might have meant it clever,
but it came out really mean.
I thought we trusted one another
and had each other’s backs.
I said something you can’t handle,
now I’m paying the terminal tax.

Easy to say the gentle junk –
the stuff you want to hear,
but there’s times you just gotta know
things unpleasant to the ear.
Blame the one who started it,
not by what was said –
when you kill the messenger,
you’re killing me, instead.
(refrain x3)
