Paroles "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" - Passenger

Well, I am the boy who cried wolf
And I know I've lied in the past
But last night I saw his yellow eyes shining in the dark
Yeah, I know I spun tales with his voice
And I open my mouth too fast
But last night I saw his footprints in the path

Well, I could swim every sea from south pole to north
But I know I'll only ever be the boy who cried wolf

Well, I am the shepherd's only son
And I know what a joke I've become
I have an honest heart but I have lies on my tongue
I don't know how it started or where it came from
And you have no reason and I have no proof
But this time I swear, I'm telling the truth
I saw that old wolf, from tail to tooth
And I know that he's hungry and he's coming down too

Well, I could swim every sea from south pole to north
And I could climb every tree and scale every course
And I could share only the truth from this day forth
But I know I'll only ever be the boy who cried wolf

Oh, oh, I am the boy who cried wolf
Oh, oh, I am the boy who cried
