Annie Lennox

"Honestly"

The beauty that you gave
Has turned upon itself
And all the things you said
Evaporated
Evaporated...

Was I blind
Deaf and dumb
To the words slipped from your tongue?

Honestly...honestly...honestly
Alone in my bed
The things that you said
Go 'round in my head... still
It seems to be true
That nothing I do
Can influence you...

I tried and tried again...
(Don't you know that I tried and tried again
To make you listen to me but everything I said-
It always seemed to go right through you)
...to make you notice me...
(I turned myself into a person that I didn't like
But please believe me when I say
I know it wasn't right)
...but, talking to myself...
(I never thought that things would get to
Be so complicated. I never thought
That you and me would end up
So frustrated)
...won't catch your attention, I see...
(You'd think that something would come
From all those good intentions
But in the end I needed something
More than intervention)

Was I mad?
Foolish me
To succ*mb so easily
(So easily, so easily.)

Honestly...honestly...honestly
Alone in my bed
The things that you said
Go 'round in my head... still
It seems to be true
That nothing I do
Can influence you... still

Fools like me get so easily taken
And fools like me can be so mistaken

Honestly...honestly...honestly

The promise that you gave...
(Don't you know that the promise that you gave
Just turned its back upon me
I stopped believing that you couldn't
Take the whole thing from me)
...has turned its back on me...
(I never thought I'd have to
Pay the price to set you free)
...and all you represented was
Just my projection, you see...
(you know I never thought I'd ever live
A day without you, and that's the reason
Why it makes me sad to think about you-
And you know I never thought I'd make it
If you wasn't there, and now I'm tryin'
To eject myself from this despair)

People come, people go
Never say "I told you so"
(I told you so, I told you so.)

Honestly...honestly...honestly

Everything I know you said
Going 'round inside my head

Never thought I'd see the day
Always got a price to pay

Nothing that I ever do
Ever seems to get to you...
