Honesty
Billy Joel

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 truthfullness
you might 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 allways 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
untill the bitter end
anyone can comfort me
with promises again
I know, I know



When I'm deep down inside of me
Don't be too concerned
I wont ask for nothing while I'm gone
when I want sincerity
tell me where else I can turn
cause youre 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.
