Honest
I just wanna be
I just wanna be
Honest
Honest with you

Honestly, baby
You've got me down on my knees
And honey, I'm sorry
As sorry can be
Mmm, you see you got me
My defenses were down
All I'm prayin' is
You still want me around
Ooh baby

I wanna be honest with you
You've seen it through
But I've gotta tell you, babe
That I've done somethin' wrong
I wanna be honest with you
'Bout puttin' you through this pain
It was only a sexual thing
So help me, baby
'Cause I wanna be honest now
I wanna be honest with you

Babe, we've gotta stop now
And take a look at ourselves
'Cause we took a good thing
And ran it down to the ground
Found myself lonely
And in need of some love
But if it ain't the real thing
Well, it just ain't enough
Ooh babe

I wanna be honest with you
You've seen it through
But I've gotta tell you, baby
Uhh, uhh
That I've done somethin' wrong
I wanna be honest with you
'Bout puttin' you through this pain
It was only a sexual thing
So help me, baby
'Cause I wanna be honest
I wanna be honest with you
Ooh, ooh

How much can I say I'm sorry?
What more can I do?
I wanna be with you
(I wanna be with you, baby)
Won't you say we'll stay together?
(Oh, won't you say?)
Don't you say it's gone
I wanna be with you
(Ooh, with you, just you)

So Baby, please understand
I love you
Ooo, hoo, hoo

Honest with you
(Ooo, hoo, ooo, ooo)
You've seen it through
(Open a gallant town, oh baby, baby, babe)
I've done somethin' wrong
Honest with you
(Honest with you)
'Bout puttin' you through
(Oh, I never meant to, ooo, ooo)
It was only a sexual thing

(Honest with you)
Honest with you
You've seen it through
(Oh, I gotta tell you baby, tell you baby, got)
(Ooh, I wanna be honest with you)
Honest with you
'Bout puttin' you through
(This pain)

It was nothin'
It was nothin', babe
I wanna be
I wanna be
I wanna be honest with you, ooo, ooo
(I wanna be honest with you)
That's all I wanna do
Oh, hmm
Ooh, all I wanna do, babe
And I wanna be
Wanna be
Oh, I'll wanna
Oh, I'll wanna
Oh, I'll wanna do
Let's be honest
Let's, just honest with you
