Honesty


[Intro]

Bb-Bbm-Gbmaj7-F7


[Verse]

Bb                Eb         F        F/Eb    Dm7
If you search for tenderness it isn't hard to find
Eb               Gm               Am   Cm7-F-F7   
You can have the love you need to live
Bb                        Csus      C         F/C     A/C#    Dm
And if you look for truth-ful- ness you might just as well be blind
   Eb              A             D
It always seems to be so hard to give


[Chorus]

Ebmaj7   F7  D                Gm7  F
Honest-  y   is such a lonely word
Eb          F       Bb    D
Everyone is so untrue
Ebmaj7   F7  D               Gm7
Honest-  y   is hardly ever heard
Eb                F           Bb  F9sus
But mostly what I need from you


[Verse]

Bb           Eb           F                 Dm7
I can always find someone to say they sympathize
Eb           Gm              Am     Cm7-F-F7
If I wear my heart out on my sleeve
Bb                    C              F                 D
But I don't want some pretty face to tell me pretty lies
Eb            A               D
All I want is someone to believe


[Chorus]

Ebmaj7   F7  D                Gm7  F
Honest-  y   is such a lonely word
Eb          F       Bb    D
Everyone is so untrue
Ebmaj7   F7  D               Gm7
Honest-  y   is hardly ever heard
Eb                F           Bb  F9
But mostly what I need from you


[Bridge]

Gm                  D
I can find a lover, I can find a friend
F7                            C
I can have security until the bitter end
Eb         F         F7    Eb           Bb
Anyone can comfort me with promises again
     C7      F   D-Eb-F9
I know, I know
Bb                Eb        F        F/Eb Dm           
When I'm deep inside of me, don't be too  concerned
Eb               Bb               Am     Cm7-F-F7        
I won't ask for nothing while I'm gone
Bb             C                    F    A     Dm
When I want sincerity tell me where else can I turn?
       Eb                 A7         D7
Cause you're the one that I depend upon


[Outro]

Bb-Bbm-Gbmaj7-F7-Ebmmaj7-F6-F7-Bb
