"I'd Be Lying" as written by and Greg Laswell....
Won't you let me give you a hand?
I have an extra I'm not using
Won't you let me lighten your load?
I mean after all your legs are shaking

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh, won't you take the fall?
It is me after all

Won't you let me match your stride?
I can slow down if you want to
We can handle it side by side
What do you say girl, don't you want to?

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh, won't you take the fall?
It is me after all

I'd be lying if I ran away
I'd be lying if I ran away
And so I'll stay

But won't you let me be your man?
I'm strong enough you know that I can
Be the one to ease your mind
Ease your mind

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh, won't you take the fall?
It is me after all

I'd be lying if I ran away
I'd be lying if I ran away
And so I'll stay

Won't you let me give you a hand?
I have an extra I'm not using
Won't you let me lighten your load?
I mean after all your legs are shaking

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh, won't you take the fall?
It is me after all

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh, won't you take the fall?
It is me after all

There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you

There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
(I'd be lying if I ran away)

There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
(I'd be lying if I ran away)

There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
There is not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you

    General CommentLet me preface with a line from Greg Laswell's song Not Out where he says "and it's easier to sing the things I wanna say to you"

    This is a great song....to me it is about a man (greg?) who likes a girl who is afraid to love in return.

    However, he understands and is willing to be patient "i can slow down if you want to"

    He goes on to say, "oh won't you take the fall" which i interpret to mean take a chance, or take a leap of faith because "it is me after all" which means she can have some confidence in him.

    General Commenti'm with you stevewaters...what he means with this song is to cheering this girl to take that leap of faith...she has nothing to lose, she has nothing to be afraid of, she shouldn't be so doubtfull, because "IT'S ME AFTER ALL" it's all in those 4 words (or 5 :P)

    I think that's all about taking that leap of faith blindess because you have a good man in front of you, girl! and his name is Greg Laswell! xD

    General CommentLove love LOVE this song.

    Especially the lined "it is me after all"...a message of familiarity, asking the girl to take that extra leap of faith.

    General CommentThat line, "I'd be lying if I ran away" is what really gets me in this song. His devotion is such that, regardless of whether she's willing to go for it and see what they can be together, it would be a *lie* to leave her. He doesn't say, "I'd be hiding if I ran away" or "I wouldn't be telling the whole truth if I ran away." There's a distinction between failing to say something true and saying something that is distinctly not true. He loves her so much that leaving her would be distinctly untrue. That's pretty cool, I think.
