Honestly Lyrics - Annie Lennox

Review The Song (3)

The beauty that you gave
Has turned upon itself
And all the things you said
Evaporated ...
Was I blind
Deaf and dumb
To the words slipped from yur 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 nothin' I do
Can influence you ...

I tried and tried again
(Don't you know 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 o frustrated)
Won't catch you attention I see ...
(You'd think that something had to come from all those good intentions
But in the end I needed something more than intervention)

Was I mad?
Was I ... mad?
Foolish me
Foolish ... me
To succumb so easily
To suc...cumb
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 nothin' 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 the promise that you
gave just turned it's back upon me
I stopped believing but you couldn't take the whole thing from me)
Has turned it's back
(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"

Everything I know you said
Goin' round inside my head

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

Nothin' that I ever do
Ever seems to get to you

One of the greatest singers ever. | Reviewer: Bill | 12/27/12

Not many vocalists of this caliber exist. Annie Lennox sings not only the lead vocals in her recordings, but also many of the harmony vocals. Just an incredible voice. Never tire of listening to her.

you saved me Annie........ | Reviewer: carolyn | 4/16/12

I have always loved annie lennox,as far back as I can remember... her songs,words helped me through some very tough times in my life,but when I heard this song I was blown away..... Thanks annie,there is no one quite like you.... much respect,x

this was my theme song ... | Reviewer: Valerie | 9/22/08

...when I was going through some particularly difficult times with my teenager daughters, which are, thank God, past. I'd blast this song and sing the sub-lyricsa the top of my lungs and it'd make me feel just a little bit better and less pissed off at them! Saw Annie last year in concert and she is fabulous.
