Honesty Lyrics

Artist: 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 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 as for nothin' while I'm gone.
But when I want sincerity
tell me where else can I turn.
Because you're the one 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.

Aptly worded angst depicting the lament of the current times!! Great song...enough to make a songwriter immortal.

This song is totally gives me more impact. It is true! I also feel pain and hurt because nobody seems to be honest. Sometimes it is goed to play the role of game when you are inlove you so won't get hurt much at the end.

This song is in my TOP 2 songs ever!
Trying to put to words how I feel about this song will only take away from the brilliance of it.
Thanks Billy, thank you very much for a song that touches me every time I hear it.

This song touched me the very first time I heard it. The lyrics is so conducive to my mindset, since my outlook in life is to be always honest and my seeming diminishing trust generally in people who use friendliness as a smokescreen.

Why do people find it so hard to be honest. The sting of an honest moment is far easier to bear than the pain of prolonged lies
