Now It’s True

Based on Ireland 2019
Sarah McTernan — 22

I said 22 on the first date with you
An age you’d buy into
I felt forced to write that in the dating app
Like it’s common to do

Oh I know the truth will always come to light
But that time saying less felt right

When I told you I’m a student and I will graduate soon
That I’m living with my parents and I have a tiny room
That I’m clubbing every week and I’m staying out till noon
I lied there; I am 32

Baby, now it’s true
I am 32

I’m not 32, that’s a big pile of poo
I must be frank to you
I’m positive that when I can explain myself
You’ll get my point of view

Oh I know the truth will always come to light
But that time saying less felt right

When I told you I’m a waiter and my contract ends in June
That I’m living with four flatmates and I have a tiny room
That I’m more or less a geek and I still sometimes play Doom
I lied too; I am 42

I am 42, yeah
Baby, now it’s true
I am 42

I’m a businessman
CFO in a big enterprise
So I own quite a spacious flat
With gym and spa

(When I told you I’m a student and I will graduate soon)
Can’t believe I said so much shit
(That I’m living with my parents and I have a tiny room)
I don’t go out, I don’t play, have no hobbies; I presume
I’m too dull to be 42

(When I told you I’m a waiter and my contract ends in June)
I was lying, no, no, no
(That I’m living with four flatmates and I have a tiny room)
Well I lied here too
I’m not 42
