“Night Surfer”

Truth Will Out (Ballad of Mellissa and Remy) (LYRICS)

Mellissa always said she had a right to be wrong

Maybe that's the reason she lied

Remy said that he was only looking for a friend

The night they asked him up inside

No one knows exactly what went down in that room

How the truth came out or from whose lips

Sometimes it builds up like a dam it bursts

Other times it stumbles and slips

Till it all comes out

Go on and jump and shout

But it's going to take a war to stop it

Remy said a scar ran down the side of his face

The cop said, "Son, that isn't enough"

Well, he called himself the Greek but he only spoke French

We met him after hours at the club

Mellissa said she fainted at the sight of it all

She said, Remy had to carry me out

See I'd never seen a gun up close in person before

And the words like honey poured from her mouth

And it all came out

Go on and jump and shout

But it's going to take a war to stop it

Remy gave a statement with his fingers crossed

He said, I hope this means that I can still vote

When they brought Melissa in she didn't look at him once

She hung her head and she read from her notes

The Greek faced the camera - didn't utter a word

He couldn't speak or even move his head

The prosecutor stood - cracked a joke and he smiled

Said you don't know it son, but you're already dead

And it all came out

Go on and jump and shout

But it's going to take a war to stop it

"I may never even get to see you again"

Remy said, "I ain't done nothing"

Tighten up your panties boy

Loosen up your wig

You better pray nobody finds you

Now Mellissa's got a family and a government job

(And) No one ever mentions the past

Sometimes she lays awake in the middle of the night

Wondering how long can this fairy tale last

Me I took a train to the border that night

I spend a little time in Berlin

Sometimes I think I'll give Mellissa a call

But I wouldn't know where to begin

Till it all comes out

Go on and jump and shout

But it's going to take a war to stop it
