Most people never notice that all dem want

And need is right in front dem eyes

If only they could see

Shoooo…

She stays home alone, she cooks and she cleans…

She’s a good woman but he don’t know…

I wish I had someone like her

Just to show how much she’s worth

And if I had someone like her

I would work to erase the hurt

Tarrus Riley Honesty

If you search for tenderness its not hard to find

You can have the love you need to live

But if you search for truthfulness

You might 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

Mostly what I need from you

I can always find someone

Who say they simpathize

If I wear my heart out on my sleeves

I dont need some pretty face

To tell me pretty lies

All I need is someone to believeee

Honesty is such a lonely word

Everyone is so untrue

Honesty is hardly ever heard

Mostly what I need from you

I can find a lover

I can find a friend

I can match security until the bitter end

Anyone can comfort me

Promise is a plage

I know..I know..I knooowooo

When am deep inside myself

Dont be too concern

I wont ask for nothing when am gone

But when I want some sanity

Tell me where else can I turn

Cause you are the one I depend oooonnnn

Honesty is such a lonely word

Everyone is so untrue

Honesty is hardly ever heard

Mostly what I need from you

Honesty is such a lonely word

Everyone is so untrue

Honesty is hardly ever heard

Mostly what I need from you

All I need from you is honesty

All I need from you is honesty

Honesty is all I need from you..

Tarrus Riley Love Scars

[Intro:]

Woman don’t cry

Cause it hurts inside to see your tears fall

I apologize for every man who as done you wrong

[Chorus:]

You say your heart has being broken

Your smile as being stolen

Tired of being a victim of love

[Verse 1:]

Every time you let someone in

It’s like a dagger piercing straight through your heart

He left you with wounds, love stars

I can fix it if you give me the chance

Relation with wounds leave scars

I can fix it if you give me the chance

Still brose from the first cut

Oh shi say the sky’s are deep

You smile but now she’s up

Every night alone she sleeps

All she want’s is to be love

Love is no where to be found

Search your life for mister right

Mister right is always wrong

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]

You’ve being torn an abuse

No hurt before

And you can’t offord to trust love anymore

He left you with wounds, love stars

Still brose from the first cut

Oh shi say the sky’s are deep

You smile but now she’s up

Every night alone she sleeps

Tarrus Riley Don’t Judge

You see him on the streets, he’s always there

No one has ever heard him speak

Although he’ll stare

Soon, very soon he’ll open in his mouth

And you’ll be surprised of the words that come out

He might be a father that you turned your back on

Or your brother that haven’t seen in so long

You see him on the streets with rats for clothes

How did he end up in on them streets

No one knows where he is from or what is about

But you’d be surprised if he should open his mouth

He might be a prophet, that you read of in book

Or your saviour, despite how he looks

So don’t you ever jump to judge

Don’t you ever jump to judge

Looks may be deceiving, but every man’s got their meaning

I can tell you, you might end up in his shoes

On the corner, singing the blues

Don’t you ever jump to judge

Look beyond the cover of before you jump to judge

Looks may be deceiving, every man’s got their meaning

He might be a father that you turned your back on

Or your brother that your finger’s point on

The woman in the street that you pass by

Is somebody’s daughter, somebody’s wife

I can’t blind my eyes, I’m crying inside

People criticize who stereotype

Might be a mother that you turned your back on

Or your sister that your finger’s point on

We are the people of the streets, we all are one

No matter how you see it, a one nation

And soon very soon, we’ve got to be strong

And look beyond this mass confusion

It might be creation that you turned your back on

Or your heaven, the way [?]

So don’t you ever jump to judge

Look beyond the cover, don’t jump to judge

Looks may be deceiving, every one’s got their meaning

So don’t you ever jump to judge

Look beyond the cover before you jump to judge

Looks may be deceiving, every one’s got their meaning
