I Could Have Lied
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


There must be something
In the way I feel
That she don't want me to feel
The stare she bares cut me
I don't care
You see so what if I bleed

I could never change
Just what I feel
My face will never show
What is not real

A mountain never seems to have
The need to speak
A look that shares so many seek
The sweetest feeling
I got from you
The things I said to you were true

I could never change
Just what I feel
My face will never show
What is not real

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

But now she's gone yes she's gone away
A soulful song
That would not stay
You see she hides 'cause she is scared
But I don't care
I won't be spared

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

Great gem of a song on a virtuoso of an album. Funk, rock and balladry all in one album.
Eternity matters. Share this with loved ones and friends.
Praise GOd/JEsus for salvation thru grace and not works. NO amount of anything we can do is good enough. And we don`t have to work to maintain it. Not license to sin. The Holy Spirit will guide us to live right. It is by GOds` Grace and Jesus Christs` blood we are saved.
Faith/belief in this scripture plus nothing.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 New International Version (NIV)
The Resurrection of Christ
15 Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
Believe that plus nothing and you will be saved permanently. You can add nothing else to it. Except praise to GOd and JEsus for it. . AMEN!!

Song Meaning
This is what Anthony had to say:

'One day I called and left a message on her answering machine, then went off. When I came back, there was a response on my machine. "Hey, Anthony, this is Sinead, I’m moving out of Los Angeles tomorrow, and I don’t want you to call me or come by before I leave. Good-bye." I was shattered. It had gone overnight from "Can’t wait to see you again" to "Don’t call and don’t come by," I didn’t know who to turn to, so I called up John. He was irate that she could treat me like that, and he suggested that I write about it and we’d get together later that night and create a song. It had been raining for two days straight when I sat down at my dining room table, put Jimi Hendrix’s version of "All Along the Watchtower" on continual rotation for inspiration, and started writing some lyrics about what had just happened to me. I drove over to John’s house around midnight. He was like a mad scientist, empathizing with me, but absolutely possessed with the idea of finishing this song. So we worked and worked and stayed up all night, listening to that pouring rain. We finally finished the song at five in the morning and, cassette in hand, rushed out to drive through this rainstorm of rainstorms, straight to Sinead’s house. It was her last night there, and I didn’t knock, I just bundled up the tape and shoved it through her mail slot. She left town the next day. The years went by, and our record came out, and life moved on. There were tragedies and triumphs and successes and failures and people died and people had babies and I always wondered what it would be like if I ever saw that girl again.’ — Anthony Kiedis
