Lyrics and Music by Billy Joel


Intro: Bb5 Bbm/Ab | Gbmaj F7

Bb                Eb
If you search for tenderness,
F            F/Eb Dm7
It isn’t hard to find.
Eb               Gm7              Am7   Cm7 F F7
You can have the love you need to live.
Bb                  Csus4        C
But if you look for truthfulness
          F/C     A7/C#   Dm
You might just as well be blind;
   Eb               A7   A7sus4  D7sus4 D7 D7sus4 D7
It always seems to be so hard to give.

Chorus:
     Ebmaj F9   D/F#   D7/F#  Gm    Fadd9
     Honesty is such a lonely word.
     Eb          F  Fsus4add9 Bb Bbadd9 D7 Em75- D7/F#
     Everyone is so untrue.
     Ebmaj F9   D/F#   D7/F# Gm   Fadd9
     Honesty is hardly ever heard
         Eb            F    F9   Bbsus4 Bb F7
     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.

Chorus:
     Honesty is such a lonely word.
     Everyone is so untrue.
     Honesty is hardly ever heard
         Eb            F    F9   Bbsus4 Bb
     And mostly what I need from you.

Instrumental: Bb Bbm/Ab | Gbmaj F7

Bridge:
 Gm
   I can find a lover
 D7add11
   I can find a friend.
 Fm6
   I can have security
     C/E
   Until the bitter end.
 Eb6          F       Fadd9
   Anyone can comfort me
        Eb/Bb     Bb
   With promises again,
     Csus4   C       F6 F7
   I know, I know, I know,
   D7/F# D7 Eb Eb/F
   Whoa, whoa.

When I’m deep inside of me
Don’t be too concerned,
I won’t ask for nothing while I’m gone.
But when I want sincerity,
Tell me, where else can I turn
Because you’re the one that I depend upon.

Chorus:
     Honesty is such a lonely word.
     Everyone is so untrue.
     Honesty is hardly ever heard
         Eb            F    F9   Bbsus4 Bb
     And mostly what I need from you.

Instrumental: Bb Bbm/Ab | Gbmaj F7
