Meat Loaf – I’d Lie For You (And That’s The Truth)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:50 pm by LynxLee


From the album Welcome to the Neighborhood. The song, which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1995, was composed by Diane Warren. This overproduced (to say the least), Indiana Jones-influenced video was directed by Howard Greenhalgh. Although the video features model Dana Patrick — who “sings” the duet at the end of the earlier, hugely successful video for “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” — and the opening shots establish it as a sequel of sorts to that video, it actually doesn’t seem to have much of a connection. However, it may well set a record for the most explosions and elaborate stunts ever in a video.
Celebrity Cameo: ubiquitous character actor Xander Berkeley (probably best known from the first two seasons of 24) as the Nazi-ish “bad guy”.

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 out 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

Believe me baby, I could never do you wrong
And I would never paint your world blue
And if sometimes it seems I must have lost mind
I might be crazy but I’m crazy about you…

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you want me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you’d 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, 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
You’re the only one that I’ll give it to
Go let ’em say that I’m I 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
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’d 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 about you!

[Instrumental bridge]

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’d 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’d 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’d just believe in me…

I’d lie for you and thats the truth
