“I’d Lie For You (And That’s the Truth)”

Aku pertama kali menyukai Meatloaf karena lagu “I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)“, liriknya top dan durasinya panjang[1]. Lagu ini sampai sekarang masih suka kuputar kalau lagi jalan dan gak jarang setelah sampai tujuan pun lagunya belum habis. 😀 Video musicnya patut dikasih 2TU, serasa nonton film.

Setelah itu aku baru tahu lagu-lagunya yang lain yang ternyata khas, baik suara (pasti) dan juga arrangement lagunya. Satu hal lagi yang unik selain lirik-liriknya yang nonsensical, contradictory dan rule revoking adalah judul-judul lagunya yang juga agak gak lazim dipake untuk judul lagu, misalnya “Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are” dan Life Is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back“.

Lagu “I’d Lie For You (And That’s the Truth)” adalah salah satu favoritku. Isinya full gombal, tapi paling tidak gombalnya keren. 😉

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 chanceI’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 hand

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 ’bout you

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you ask me to
I’d even sell my soul for you[2]
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[3]
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 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 ask me to
I’d even sell my soul for you, I’d do it all 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 ’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

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
