"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 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.
