"Almost Honest" as written by Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman....
I lied just a little
When I said I need you
You stretched the truth
When you said that you knew
Just can't believe it
There's nothing to say
I was almost honest, almost
Living alone, can't stand this place
It's four in the morning and I still see your face
I was nearly pure
When I said I loved you
You were semi-sincere
You said I'd bleed for you
We were kind of candid
Now you've gone away
You were almost honest, almost
Living alone, falling from grace
I want to atone but there's just empty space
I can't face tomorrow, now you're not coming back
Walked off in the night and just left me the tracks
I question your call by the tone of your voice
I know I should hang up but I don't have a choice
It happened that night when you told me to go
Don't ask who's to blame, I don't know
Almost, almost honest
Almost, I was almost honest

    General CommentAbout a guy who enters a relationship with not too serious intentions. He doesn't really love the girl, but stays together with her just for sex and in wait of something better. Somehow she finds out, and breaks up the relationship, but by then the guy has realized that he has fallen in love with the girl after all. Thus he was 'almost honest' when expressing his feelings for her, because he thought he was lying when he was actually speaking the truth. Unfortunately, she doesn't want to see him anymore.

    General CommentI think this song reflects the society we live in-too eagar to fit in, scared to be honest, scared to be alone. Dave may be reflecting on his failed relationships and wanting some closure. I think the lyrics above are incorrect as in one of the choruses it actually says "Sleeping alone" instead of living alone...

    General CommentSadly while all these meanings are all great i know for a fact what it is about. The song is about how you everything is after you leave a seriouse relationship with soemone you loved you said all these beautiful things like you need them and yuo will always love them but after its over everything you said isnt true anymore so all yuor promises were almost honest since when you said them they were true but they arent any more but you still werent lying you were being "almost honest"
