Lyrics

Honesty

Written By: Breckinridge

Is it okay if I break down and go insane, disgrace my name

'Cause I can't bear the pain, my face is showin' all my emotion

This mind of mine, don’t care, and it can’t feel, nothin' but despair

The fact is I believe that I don’t need, need you anyway

Chorus:

I can't take it back today

Is it gone again?

I don’t need your honesty

No, no I don’t need

I can’t live my life this way

Lord once again

So I don’t need your honesty

Honesty (2x)

It was all I could say, and all I could do

To show you I was hurtin'

I saw a tear fall from your blue eyes

And I turned my head

'Cause it was far

too late for all of that don't you see

see what you did

Chorus

Yeah

Oh no, I don't need it (3x)

Oh no

Is it okay if I break down and go insane, disgrace my name

I can’t take it back today

Is it gone again?

I don't need your honesty

I can't live my life this way, no

I don't need your honesty, no (3x)
