[VERSE 1]
Bb                   Eb
   If you search for tenderness

   It isn't hard to find.

   You can have the love you need to live.
Bb                     C7sus4   C7
   But if you look for truthfulness
          F/C     C#dim   Dm
You might just as well be blind.
   Ebmaj7           A7            Am7/D   D7
It always seems to be so hard to give.

Ho - nesty is such a lonely word.

Eb                Gm7            Am7    Cm7   F
   If I wear my heart out on my sleeve.
Bb                       C7sus4   C7
   But I don't want some pretty face
   F/C     C#dim   Dm
To tell me pretty lies.
Ebmaj7        A7           Am7/D   D7
All I want is someone to believe.

With promises again.

I know     I kn - ow.

   When I'm deep inside of me

   Don't be too concerned.
Eb                 Gm7               Am7   Cm7   F
   I won't ask for nothin' while I'm gone.
Bb                    C7sus4   C7
   But when I want sincerity
        F/C        C#dim    Dm
Tell me where else can I turn.
        Ebmaj7               A7         Am7/D   D7
Because you're the one that I depend upon.
