Honesty

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

if you search
for tenderness
it isn't hard to find
you can have the love
you need to live

but if you look
for truthfulness
you might
just as well be blind

it always seems to be
so hard to give
honesty
is such a lonely word
everyone is so untrue

honesty
is hardly ever heard
and mostly
what i need from you

i can always
find someone
to say they sympathize
if i wear my heart
out on my sleeve
but i don't want
some pretty face
to tell me pretty lies

all i want is someone
to believe
honesty
is such a lonely word
everyone is so untrue

honesty
is hardly ever heard
and mostly
what i need from you

i can find a lover
i can find a friend
i can have security
until the bitter end

anyone can
comfort me
with promises again
i know
i know
i know

when i'm deep
inside of me
don't be
too concerned
i won't ask for nothin'
while i'm gone

but when i want
sincerity
tell me
where else can i turn

'cause you're the one
that i depend upon
honesty
is such a lonely word
everyone is so untrue

honesty
is hardly ever heard
and mostly
what i need from you
