Michael McDonald - Honest Emotion Lyrics




I know that there is more to life
Than this little piece that I've broken off and keep suspended
Safe behind these four walls

But have I just blocked out the sky
That fills that old river with pure water
Of love stronger than pride

[CHORUS:]
Honest emotion
So hard to come by
Once it hurts you enough to last a lifetime
With honest emotion
Would honest emotion even know me if I walk through this door

I'm a skater on the lake of love
Always gliding on the surface of deeper feelings
But never falling through

On my blades of flash and steel
Between the sky and deep blue clear crystal
Waters of pure love

[REPEAT CHORUS]

I have wings on my shoulders
I never thought to use them
And these shadows in my heart
I never thought I'd lose them

[REPEAT CHORUS]

    I know that there is more to life
    Than this little piece that I've broken off and keep suspended
    Safe behind these four walls

    But have I just blocked out the sky
    That fills that old river with pure water
    Of love stronger than pride

    Honest emotion
    So hard to come by
    Once it hurts you enough to last a lifetime
    With honest emotion
    Would honest emotion even know me if I walk through this door

    I'm a skater on the lake of love
    Always gliding on the surface of deeper feelings
    But never falling through

    On my blades of flash and steel
    Between the sky and deep blue clear crystal
    Waters of pure love

    Honest emotion
    So hard to come by
    Once it hurts you enough to last a lifetime
    With honest emotion
    Would honest emotion even know me if I walk through this door
