Honesty: Inspired by Billy Joel

“If you search for tenderness, it isn’t hard to find.”

You just have to find the right one, the one who makes you smile and doesn’t waste your time.

“But if you look for truthfulness, you might just as well be blind.”

Because love hurts and it bites, but lust erases it from our mind.

“It always seems so hard to give.”

And now I know it’s back to the friend zone where I’ve always lived.

“Honesty is such a lonely word, everyone is so untrue.”

But it’s okay, I’ll stay here feeling ocean blue.

“Honesty is hardly ever heard and mostly what I need from you.”

All the laughs we shared and the connection we have – makes it hard for me to leave.

“But I don’t want some pretty face to tell me pretty lies, all I want is someone to believe.”

I suppose I was right to assume that I might as well be blind because this hurts more than a kick to a dislocated knee.

“When I‘m deep inside of me…..”

I just want you to know that all I asked was for sincerity and loyalty!

“Honesty is such a lonely word, everyone is so true. Honesty is hardly ever heard and mostly what I need from you.”
