I’d lie for you

When MrH and I met Meatloaf had just released his album Welcome to The Neighbourhood.  There were many songs on this album that we listened to while we made love but one of them has always been my favourite.  

The certainty, the promises, the love I feel in these lyrics are beautiful- perhaps unobtainable- but as the years have gone by, MrH has time and again proven himself to be this devoted. Everytime I hear this song, well most of this album, I am transported back to those early years.  To French maid outfits and stockings with suspenders.  

I’d lie for you (and that’s the truth)

Duet by Meatloaf and Patti Russo

I’d never tell you one lie
I’d never let you down
I’d never leave
I’d be the one who’d always be around
Baby give me a chance
 
I’d pull the sun down from the sky
To light your darkest night
I wouldn’t let one drop of rain fall down into your life
Put your heart in my hands
Baby believe me I could never do you wrong
And I would never paint your world blue
And if sometimes it seems I must have lost my mind
I might be crazy, but I’m crazy about you
 
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you just believe in me
 
Just take a look in my eyes
You’ll see a love that’s blind
Just take a hold of my hand
And I’ll take you to paradise
Ain’t a star that’s too far
 
Your every wish will be a wish
That I will make come true
And if you want the moon
I swear I’ll bring it down for you
Let me into your heart
 
Believe me baby, got your name carved on my soul
‘Cause you’re the only one that I’ll give it to
Go let ’em say that I’m a fool to act this way
‘Cause if I’m crazy, I’m just crazy ’bout you
 
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you just believe in me
 
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you just believe in me
 
And you will never see a day, I’ll ever break your heart
You’ll see the sky fall down before it ever gets that far
I’ll show you Heaven every second that you’re in my arms
Baby I’m crazy, but I’m crazy ’bout you
 
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you just believe in me
 
I’d walk across the wild for you
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to
 
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you just believe in me
 
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you just believe in me
I’d lie for you and that’s the truth

    1. No way!!! Welcome to the Neighbourhood is awesome.. go listen to it immediately!!!! My favourites are this one obviously…also “not a dry eye in the house” and “if this is the last kiss”

  1. I remember when Meatloaf came out with I Would Do Anything For Love (but I won’t do THAT). I had the long-play single on cassette and dann near wore it (and my parents’ ears) out listening to it. 😉

    1. Lol, I grew up with meatloaf they were a favourite of my dads, but, I think that was the first song of theirs that I was aware of being in the charts, and I loved the video to it lol
