What can I do, what can I do?
Much of what you say is true
I know you see through me
But there's no tenderness
Beneath your honesty

Oh, right and wrong, right and wrong
Ooh, never helped us get along
You say you care for me
But there's no tenderness
Beneath your honesty

You and me were such good friends
What's your hurry?
You and me could make amends
I'm not worried, I'm not worried

Oh honesty, oh honesty
Ooh, it's such a waste of energy
No you don't have to lie to me
Just give me some tenderness
Beneath your honesty

You don't have to lie to me
Just give some tenderness

Tenderness
