A Few Honest Words

If you're gonna lead my country
If your'e gonna say it's free
I'm gonna need a little honesty

Just a few honest words
It shouldn't be that hard
Just a few honest words is all I need

I don't need no handshake
No firm look in the eye
Don't tell me what you think I ought to hear

I don't need no highlights
No fancy premiere
Just tell me what you really think without fear

Just a few honest words
It shouldn't be that hard
Just a few honest words is all I need

Love is a bitter fruit
We have learned to eat
But we still don't know where it grows

And our love of freedom
Holds a veil over our eyes
Rights that are given can be taken away

Just a few honest words
It shouldn't be that hard
Just a few honest words is all I need

We don't choose our leaders
They choose themselves
Tell me again about democracy
