Honest

 

Another black tie 

Another crowded room 

If we leave right now 

It wouldn’t be too soon 

The way you looked at me 

That was all you had to say 

 

What I’m feeling here 

I have never felt 

You know me better than 

I know myself 

It’s like you read my mind 

Every time is non-pareil 

 

If I can be honest, a moment of truth 

Where I can be me and baby you can be you 

No eyes upon us 

Am I asking for too much? 

 

We could dance around 

What lives in the past 

Smile at everyone 

Pour another glass 

Like a paper doll 

Join in the masquerade 

 

If I can be honest, a moment of truth 

Where I can be me and baby you can be you 

No eyes upon us 

Am I asking for too much? 

 

We started something and I don’t wanna stop 

But I don’t want you falling for someone I’m not 

And if I can be honest 

All I want is to be loved, loved by you 

 

If I can be honest, a moment of truth 

Where I can be me and baby you be you 

No eyes upon us 

Am I asking for too much? 

 

You know that we started something and I don’t wanna stop 

But I don’t want you falling for someone I’m not 

So if I can be honest, really honest 

All I want, all I want is to be loved by you, by you
