The only the thing I'm looking for

The only the thing I'm looking for

Is the thing I cannot find

In a world that's run by lies

And no one seems to mind

The only thing I'm looking for

Is a little honesty

Those kinds of lies are hard to keep

So set yourself free to me

How well do you know

The person you know best

The secrets she may keep

May be more shocking than the rest

Being true to others

Means being true to me

So what's so bad when people say

"Please answer truthfully"

I may not even be who you think I am

I may not be who I seem to be

But in a world that's full of lies,

My lie becomes reality

I want to trust you all

I once did long ago

But then amongst the betrayal

My friends became my foes

The only thing I'm looking for

Is the thing I cannot find

But even in this world of lies,

I vow to be true and kind
