“If You Search For Tenderness… It Isn’t Hard To Find… You Can Have The Love You Need To Live…” — BILLY JOEL (“Honesty” (1978))

“…But If You Look For Truthfulness…

…You Might Just As Well Be Blind…

…It Always Seems To Be So Hard To Give…

Honesty

…Is Such A Lonely Word…

…Everyone Is So Untrue…

Honesty

…Is Hardly Ever Heard…

…And Mostly What I Need From You. …”

"HONESTY" By BILLY JOEL From His Album "52ND STREET" (1978)

“…I Can Always Find Someone…

…To Say They Sympathize…

…If I Wear My Heart Out On My Sleeve…

…But I Don’t Want Some Pretty Face…

…To Tell Me Pretty Lies…

…All I Want Is Someone To Believe…

Honesty

…Is Such A Lonely Word…

…Everyone Is So Untrue…

Honesty

…Is Hardly Ever Heard…

…And Mostly What I Need From You. …”

… … … … … … …

… … … … …

So I Fell Asleep With My MP3Player And Headphones On, Last Night.

When I Awoke This Morning…

…This Was The Song Playing.

I Had The Damned Thing’s Play Mode Switched Over To…

SHUFFLE-REPEAT

…So I Apparently Slept The Whole Night…

…With My Music Playin’ Its Little Heart Out.

I Just Found It Oddly Interesting…

…That This Song…

HONESTY

By

BILLY JOEL

…Was The Song I Awoke To.

Especially After Yesterday’s Bloggin’ing.

In All Honesty, My Peeps…

…In Regard To This Song…

…It’s A Personal Favorite Of BOTH…

…Myself…

…AND…

…My Mother.

In Fact…

…My Mother Is The Person Whom Introduced Me To The World Of…

BILLY JOEL

…At Such A Very VERY Early Age…

…As I’m Sure You’ll Remember From Prior-Posts.

So…

…Even Though This Is One Of His Slower Tunes…

…It Still Makes Me Feel Perked-Up…

…And Puts A Bit Of A Smile Across My Face.

I Sincerely…

…And Honestly…

…Love Love LOVE This Song.

I Always Have.

I Mean…

…Not Only Is It A GREAT Song…

…But It’s Also So Deeply Ingrained Within…

…My Mind…

…AND…

…My Heart…

…That It  Sincerely Feels As Though It’s Another Song With Magical Powers.

Music Has That Wild Ability To Change A Person.

Just A Single, Simple Song Can Do So Much For A Person’s…

…MENTAL…

…PHYSICAL…

…And/Or…

…EMOTIONAL State Of Being.

They Can Bring A Person Way WAY UP…

…Or Send Them Spiraling Way WAY DOWN.

 Any Song…

…Heard Anywhere…

…At Any Time…

…Carries The Potential Of Changing You/Me/Us.

So…

…Even Though…

HONESTY

…Is…

…A Slower…

…Ballad’ish Type Tune…

…It Nevertheless Gave Me A Jolt Of Joy This Morning…

…And I’m Already…

…Honestly…

…Very VERY Grateful For It.

PLEASE PLEASE, My Peeps…

…Do All You Can To Enjoy Your Day.

Perhaps This Little Tune Could Help You, Also?

I Sincerely Hope So.

If Not…

…Hmm…

…At Least I Tried.
