Almost Honest


Lights off


Music video by Megadeth performing Almost Honest (Broadcast Music Video). Almost Honest is the second song as well as the second single off of Megadeth's seventh studio album Cryptic Writings. It was released in September 1997. It was later included on the compilation album, Capitol Punishment and the box set Warchest, but it is not on the Greatest Hits: Back To The Start or Anthology: Set The World Afire compilations. The song went up to the 8th position in the U.S. Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.

'Almost Honest' has a theme similar to 'Trust', but with a much lighter tone. It is about a person who enters a relationship with not too serious intentions. He doesn't really love the girl, but stays together with her just for sexual reasons and in wait of something better. Somehow she finds out, and breaks up the relationship, but by then the guy has realized that he has fallen in love with the girl after all. Thus he was 'almost honest' when expressing his feelings for her, because she thought he was lying when he was actually speaking the truth. Unfortunately, she doesn't want to see him anymore.
