‘Honesty’—Billy Joel

On last Friday, we listened to Billy Joel’s ‘Honesty’, and I have pointed out the following phrase is an idiom. Please click the link for the meaning.

‘I can always find someone
To say they sympathize
‘If I wear my heart out on my sleeve.’

What follows is an explanation quoted from ‘Go_English.com’ <site:http://www.goenglish.com/WearYourHeartOnYourSleeve.asp&gt;

‘People who wear their heart on their sleeve express their emotions freely and openly, for all to see. Example: “She is kind of player who never hides how she’s feeling. One look at her and you know if she’s winning or losing.” Reply: “She wears her heart on her sleeve.”‘
