Bb-Bbm-Gbmaj7-F7

Bb Eb F 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 C F D
And if you look for truthfulness 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

[end chorus]
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

[repeat chorus]
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-F9sus
I know, I know
Bb Eb F 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
