Sad But True

Written By Hetfield/Ulrich

Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who takes you there

Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who cares

They
They betray
I'm your only true friend now

They
They'll betray
I'm forever there

	I'm your dream, make you real
	I'm your eyes when you must steal
	I'm your pain when you can't feel
	Sad but true
	
	I'm your dream, mind astray
	I'm your eyes while you're away
	I'm your pain while you repay
	You know it's sad but true

You
You're my mask
You're my cover, my shelter

You
You're my mask
You're the one who's blamed

Do
Do my work
Do my dirty work, scapegoat

Do
Do my deeds
For you're the one who's shamed

	I'm your dream, make you real
	I'm your eyes when you must steal
	I'm your pain when you can't feel
	Sad but true
	
	I'm your dream, mind astray
	I'm your eyes while you're away
	I'm your pain while you repay
	You know it's sad but true

Hate
I'm your hate
I'm your hate when you want love

Pay
Pay the price
Pay, for nothing's fair

Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who took you there

Hey
I'm your life
And I no longer care

	I'm your dream, make you real
	I'm your eyes when you must steal
	I'm your pain when you can't feel
	Sad but true
	
	I'm your truth, telling lies
	I'm your reason, alibis
	I'm inside, open your eyes
	I'm you
	Sad but true
