(verse 1)
If I told you that I was wrong
And wanted you to come back home,
I'd be lying.
And if I said that we could work it out
And you shouldn't have any doubts,
I'd be lying.
And if I got down on my knees
In front of God above
And swore before the angels
I'd give you my love.

(chorus)
I'd be lying next to you tonight
Holding on with my whole life.
Right back where I belong.
Looking deep into your eyes
Man enough to realize
That honey, I was wrong.
If I could swallow my pride
And put myself in your shoes
And tell you that I understand
Why you feel the way you do
Then baby, I'd be lying...
I'd be lying next to you.

(verse 2)
And if I told you that I loved you
And I put no one else above you,
I'd be lying.
And if I said you're the one for me
And I never set you free,
I'd be lying.
And if I somehow found the strength
To knock on your front door
And tell you face to face
I won't hurt you anymore.

(chorus)
I'd be lying next to you tonight.
Holding on with my whole life.
Right back where I belong.
Looking deep into your eyes
Man enough to realize
That honey, I was wrong.
If I could swallow my pride
And put myself in your shoes
And tell you that I understand
Why you feel the way you do.
Then baby, I'd be lying...
I'd be lying next to you.

If I could swallow my pride
And put myself in your shoes
And tell you that I understand
Why you feel the way you do.
Then baby, I'd be lying...
I'd be lying next to you.

Next to you...
If I told you I was wrong...
If I said that we could work it out...
If I got down on my knees...
Oh baby, I'd be lying...
