"Honesty" as written by Morgan Rose, Clint Lowery, Vince Hornsby, Butch Walker, La Jon Witherspoon and John Connolly....
It's not supposed to hurt this much but it can never feel the same again
I'm left with nothing but the memory of the way you used to feel

I guess you finally took the deepest cut
I guess the blade on my tongue was just too much
Every word that i said came from my dark side
Now this emptiness is real

You reach beneath the surface more

[Chorus]
So go and leave me with my last regret
Let me feel the way you left me dead
Too Blind to see
You stole my honesty
So go and leave me with my last regret
Let me feel the way you left me dead
Go and steal away my thoughts of honesty

I think about the time we've lost
I think about the time
The silence could be words
And now the only sound I hear
I say guilty conscience
Screaming out your name

You reach beneath the surface more

[Chorus]

Take back everything I said
A new place for us to begin
Take back everything
Take back everything
Take back everything I said

[Chorus]

    General CommentTo me i think its about a relationship, where it was built on lies and he/she is finding that out and just wants their honesty back in their lives.

    General CommentYeah and probably the relationship went bust because of something he had said. Look at the lines in the 2nd verse:
    'I guess you finally took the deepest cut
    I guess the blade on my tongue was just too much
    Every word that I said came from my dark side'

    'The blade on my tongue' is pretty evident. Sometimes it's said that words can hurt more than a blade.
