Honesty Is No Excuse

This song is by Thin Lizzy and appears on the album Thin Lizzy (1971) and on the compilation album The Continuing Saga Of The Ageing Orphans (1979).

Up till now I used to pass my time
Drinking beer so slowly, sometimes wine
No God, air, water or sunshine
And honesty was my only excuse
I took your love and I used it

Up till now my youthful stage
Was a useless rage, a torn out page, a worn out gauge
A dirty shade, a big charade, a has been made
And honesty was my only excuse
I took your love and I used it

Up till now my love life
A few sweet kisses, a little missy, a fork and knife
A happy home, a hand to hold, a land to roam
And honesty was my only excuse
I used to take life by the hand and I abused it

Up till now I used to tap dance
Take a girl by the hand
Saying I need your, I need your romance
Oh, I had me some chances
And honesty was my only excuse
I used to take your love and I abused it

Up till now the path of life
Was fair enough
Enough was fair, all was right
But now I know, I see the light
And honesty was my only excuse
