Tarrus Riley - Honesty Lyrics




If you search for tenderness its not hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
But if you search for truthfulness
You might 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
Mostly what I need from you

I can always find someone
Who say they simpathize
If I wear my heart out on my sleeves
I dont need some pretty face
To tell me pretty lies
All I need is someone to believeee

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
Mostly what I need from you

I can find a lover
I can find a friend
I can match security until the bitter end
Anyone can comfort me
Promise is a plage
I know..I know..I knooowooo

When am deep inside myself
Dont be too concern
I wont ask for nothing when am gone
But when I want some sanity
Tell me where else can I turn
Cause you are the one I depend oooonnnn

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
Mostly what I need from you

Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
Mostly what I need from you

All I need from you is honesty
All I need from you is honesty

Honesty is all I need from you..

    Tarrus Riley is a WONDERFULL singer and I love his songs . I live in Guadeloupe a french island and I had chance to see him in a concert at La Kasa in 2010 and it was wonderfull !!! Tarrus Riley I definitely love your songs !!!

    It's never a problem to reggarize any song. But when you do it justice is another thing. I found this Billy Joel classic in the Edna Manley College record listening room in 1999 and never forgot it since. Always made sure I had a copy and when I heard this artiste's rendition one night in my community the little snippet grabbed me and to hear it here in entirety confirms it is indeed an extremely well rendered cover. Keep up the good work. Excellent vocal control and to the musicians many kewdos. Music like this indeed confirms that Jamaica is a sanctuary of singing. God bless our great country.

    Tarrus Riley is such a wonderful singer. His vibrato is so good. Keep it up brother. The truths in this song are so poignant. I wonder where you heard it Tarrus? Wherever you did it must have been stroke of luck to have encountered this song. Such a nice cover version. Honestly.
