"Be Honest" as written by and Jason Mraz Michael Lee Natter....
Ok go, go hang your heart on, any tree,
You can make yourself available to anybody,
Cause every livin' person knows you are a prize,
Whichever way you go I'll be easy to find,
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me
I don't ask for much, be honest

Think of this song as a promise you can do what you want,
If you decide you wanna move into a new stage,
Deleting me from pages in your mission statement,
My love is unconditional, make no mistake,
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me,
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me,

Who we are, when love is what it wants to be,
We are free, and we are, having the best day ever by far,
Being treated to the light, like a superstar
I can hold space while you see what your heart has to say about me,
I acknowledge you for what you do to keep strong,
There's no dotted line to sign away your freedom,
I'll always stand beside you, don't get me wrong,
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me,

Who we are, when love is what it wants to be,
We are free and, we are, having the best day ever by far,
Being treated to the light, like a superstar

If I miscommunicated I apologies,
If the picture that I painted wasn't very nice,
My love is standing by you whatever you decide,
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me,
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me

Who we are, when love is what it wants to be,
We are free, and we are having the best day ever by far,
Yes we are... Yes we are...

    My InterpretationI think this song is kind of hypocritical. It's saying 2 things. One is that no matter what, you know in your heart that you will care about this person forever. It's something that is uncontrollable and it's just the truth. Hence my love is unconditional and the no commitment necessary aspect of it. Like we should both be free kind of a message.

    But then the other side of the song is saying be honest, meaning what am I to you? Even though commitment isn't absolutely necessary, the person still wants to know where they stand.

    So its kind of like take your time and figure out what i mean to you, and know that I will love you regardless, but eventually, let me know. That's why I feel like its a double meaning situation.
