I Could Lie to You

if i knew the truth then i could lie to you
if i knew just where and why i stood
if i knew how to betray you
maybe i would

if i had a watch then i could take my time
if i had to love you i just might
if i knew the law i could commit a crime
but it wouldn't be right, no it wouldn't be right

my red white blue princess
who would guess
how she scares me so
i'll never know

if i knew how scared you were i wouldn't have laughed
when you told me peace may never come
why don't you finish your story
and i will just hum

if you let me go then i could reach for you
if you pulled away then i could fall
if i knew how to forget you
god help us all

my red white blue princess
who would guess
how she scares me so

and if i knew the truth then i could lie to you
