Alan G. – Honestly lyrics
A nightmare, long ago now
Forced me awake from the pain of my dreams
A late-night look in my heart
Unearthin’ a lifetime of grief

I yelled out “Why should I hide”
And there in the storm of my lies, said a prayer
Raced to the mirror to find
An immature child feelin’ scared

Funny when you start to realize maybe you’re not a boy anymore
And if I want to grow up, what am I waitin’ for?

Here in this mirror
Who do I see
Am I still a boy
Just playin’ with toys
No that isn’t me

Here in this mirror
Could I be free
If I say goodbye
To all of the lies
I once believed

Cuz then one boy can
Grow into a man
Honestly

Blinded by visions of fear
Chasin’ illusions that I’d never find
But those lies would all disappear
When one truthful moment was mine

Funny when you start to realize maybe you’re not the boy that you were
Finally fightin’ to breathe, forever changed, forever sure

The boy in the mirror
Starin’ at me
I think he knows
That I cannot grow
Until he leaves

So I’ll break this mirror
Set his truth free
And I’ll say goodbye
To that broken child
Cuz that’s what I need

And then one boy can
Grow into a man
Honestly

There’s not a moment to lose
Truth is the light for the wise
Every boy must face the time he must choose
To see his life with open eyes

Here in the mirror
Who do I see
Am I still a boy
Just playin’ with toys
No, that isn’t me

So I’ll break this mirror
And set myself free
I’ll say goodbye
To all of the lies
I once believed

So now one boy can
Grow into a man
Honestly

Now one boy can
Grow into a man
Honestly
