Lyrics
I would like to see a show of hands
Nothing concealed, roll up your sleeve
Nothing up my sleeve except my heart
And I believe we’ve come apart
I would like to see you play your cards
Reveal your hands and show your heart
Maybe we could get it back

With truth and honesty that’s what we need to hold on
To the good stuff we believe in
Before we land up loose and sad and free
Before we find that it’s gone
We could pull it back together, truth and honesty, oh, oh
Open up your hands, show me your heart, oh, oh, oh, oh

Let’s stay up till dawn and talk it out
Nothing concealed, no alibi
Returning to light before we start
Then all we do is fall apart
If I can see the sunlight in your eyes
Then maybe we all could shine, yeah
Maybe we could get it back, oh baby, yeah baby

Oh, truth and honesty that is what we need to hold on
To the good stuff we believe in
Before we land up loose, sad and free
Before we find out all that is gone
We could pull it back together, truth and honesty, oh, oh
Open up your hands, show me your heart

Truth and honesty, oh, that’s what we need to hold on
To the good stuff we believe in
Before we land up loose and sad and free
Before we find out that it’s gone
We could pull it back together, truth and honesty

Eh, eh, oh, oh, you know what we need, sure enough within
To the good stuff, oh, the good stuff baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You got to be real, you got to be real, eh eh eh, you got to be sugar
You got to make it, yeah, yeah, yeah, you got to, you got to

Català – Veritat I Honestedat
M’agradaria veure a mà alçada
Res ocult, arremangats
Res a la meva màniga excepte el meu cor
I crec que ens hem allunyat
M’agradaria veure’t jugar les teves cartes
Revelar les teves mans i mostrar el teu cor
Potser podríem recuperar-ho

Amb veritat i honestedat que és el que necessitem per aferrar-nos
A les coses bones en que creiem
Abans d’acabar solitaris i tristos i lliures
Abans que ens adonem que s’ha acabat
Podríem engegar de nou junts, veritat i honestedat, oh, oh
Obre les teves mans, ensenya’m el teu cor, oh, oh, oh, oh

Quedem-nos fins la matinada i parlem-ne
Res ocult, sense excuses
Tornant a la llum abans de començar
Aleshores tot el que fem és fracassar
Si puc veure la llum del sol en els teus ulls
Aleshores potser tots podríem brillar, sí
Potser podríem recuperar-ho, oh noi, sí noi

Oh, veritat i honestedat que és el que necessitem per aferrar-nos
A les coses bones en que creiem
Abans d’acabar solitaris, tristos i lliures
Abans que ens adonem que tot s’ha acabat
Podríem engegar de nou junts, veritat i honestedat, oh, oh
Obre les teves mans, ensenya’m el teu cor

Veritat i honestedat, oh, que és el que necessitem per aferrar-nos
A les coses bones en que creiem
Abans d’acabar solitaris i tristos i lliures
Abans que ens adonem que s’ha acabat
Podríem engegar de nou junts, veritat i honestedat

Eh, eh, oh, oh, saps el que necessitem, per descomptat
Les coses bones oh, les coses bones noi, sí, sí, sí, sí
Has de ser sincer, has de ser sincer, eh eh eh, has de ser dolç
Has de fer-ho, sí, sí, sí, has de, has de
