The Wedding Present -
"Be Honest"

[ from the album "Bizarro" (1989) ]

Lyrics

- Oh, what rubbish! We've got to start with the drums on this, haven't we?
- Why?
- Go on, get on with it

This is all because you didn't like my mum
Well I'm afraid I cant get born again
Oh its not just me who's changed

And can you tell me what it is you think I said?
Are you sure that it's not just in your head?
And when was this anyway?

And if we're really really going to be honest
We might as well be brief

And by the way I got your little note
Along with a sudden dryness in my throat
When I saw that it came from you

Oh was it really too hard to tell me to my face
That you don't long for my embrace
The way you used to do?

And if we're really really going to be honest
We might as well be brief

- That's it
