“If You Ask Me To Lie”



If You Ask Me To Lie

Music & Lyric by Matheson Bayley, 2005

If you ask me to lie
Ask me to censor my soul
I’ll speak of a heart far from broken
Of eyes that are dry

If you ask me to lie
I’ll play my part, play my rôle
I can pretend it was all left unspoken
Well, at least I could try
If you ask me to lie

I’ll sing of the star that’ll guide me
No clouds in the sky
Notice my smile when I cry
If I can spare you the demons inside me
I’ll give it a try
Better that than goodbye

You said it was over
I saw my world start to crumble beneath my feet
But every day that goes by is a one-way street
I’ll keep masquerading
That my heartache is fading
I’ll speak of a heart far from broken
Of eyes that are dry

I’ll speak of a heart far from broken
Of eyes that are dry
I’ll play my part, play my rôle
But if I talk of a heart far from broken
Pretend it was all left unspoken
Yes, I might as well die…

…If you ask me to lie
