Lyrics and Music by 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.

Chorus:
     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.

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

Bridge:
   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,
   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
     And mostly what I need from you.
