I Would Lie

 (publicity still from Les Miserables)

I would lie,

If it meant you never knew for you I cried

I would lie,

If it smoothed harsh words against your sacred pride

I would lie,

If it would guard my heart from never admitting love’s defeat

I would lie,

If you would offer up the moon as I serve at your feet

I would lie,

If it meant I could still hear your laugh as you breathed

I would lie,

If it meant I could feel your sigh unto me you as you are completely sheathed

I would lie,

If it meant I would get the chance to start over again

I would lie

If it meant my love would be hidden and we could only be friends
