Honesty

Lyricist: Billy Joel    Composer: Billy Joel
If you search for tenderness
It isn't hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
And 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

When I'm deep inside of me,
Don't be too concerned
I won't ask for nothin' while I'm gone
When I want sincerity,
Tell me where else can I turn
'Cause you're the only one that I depend on

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
But mostly what I need from you
