​Ev'ry Honest Word

This song is by Malcolm Holcombe and appears on the album A Far Cry From Here (1994).

There ain't a nickel in a solitary dime
That'll buy back anybody's love
Above us all longer arms keep reachin' on down
And listenin' hard for ev'ry honest word

We keep workin' for

Sometimes a heart's caught talkin' too much
Stayin' busy makin' up a change
Namin' all good will callin' up a good day
And listenin' hard for ev'ry honest word

We keep workin' for

It's the little old things
For the little ones
That bring us closer homeward still
Listenin' hard for ev'ry honest word

So go on and run run out the door
And cry out louder in the streets
It ain't money keepin' me back on my feet
And listenin' hard for ev'ry honest word

It's the little old things
For the little ones
That bring us closer homeward still
Listenin' hard for ev'ry honest word

There ain't a nickel in a solitary dime
That'll buy back anybody's love

Now it's the little old things for the little ones
That bring us closer homeward still
Listenin' hard
Listenin' hard
Listenin' harder
Now for ev'ry honest word Ev'ry honest word
