"Honest Emotion" lyrics - MICHAEL MCDONALD

"Honest Emotion"

I know that there is more to life
Than this little piece that I've broken off and keep suspended
Safe behind these four walls

But have I just blocked out the sky
That fills that old river with pure water
Of love stronger than pride

Honest emotion
So hard to come by
Once it hurts you enough to last a lifetime
With honest emotion
Would honest emotion even know me if I walk through this door

I'm a skater on the lake of love
Always gliding on the surface of deeper feelings
But never falling through

On my blades of flash and steel
Between the sky and deep blue clear crystal
Waters of pure love


I have wings on my shoulders
I never thought to use them
And these shadows in my heart
I never thought I'd lose them
