"Honesty" as written by and 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 ask for nothin' while I'm gone
But when I want sincerity, tell me, where else can I turn?
When you're 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
