I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)

And I would do anything for love
I’d run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I’ll never lie to you and that’s a fact

But I’ll never forget the way you feel right now—oh no—no way
And I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No—I won’t do that

Anything for love
Oh—I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
Ha—no I won’t do that …

And some days it don’t come easy
And some days it don’t come hard
Some days it don’t come at all and these are the days that never end

And some nights you’re breathing fire
And some nights you’re carved in ice
Some nights you’re like nothing I’ve ever seen before or will again

And maybe I’m crazy, but it’s crazy and it’s true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you
As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long as your dreams are coming true—you better believe it!

That I would do anything for love
And I’ll be there ’til the final act
And I would do anything for love
And I’ll take a vow and seal a pact

But I’ll never forgive myself if we don’t go all the way—tonight
And I would do anything for love!
Oh—I would do anything for love
Oh—I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that …

I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that …

And some days I pray for silence
And some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock and Roll

Some nights I lose the feeling
And some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Maybe I’m lonely, that’s all I’m qualified to be
There’s just one and only, one and only promise I can keep:
As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true—you better believe it!

That I would do anything for love
And you know it’s true and that’s a fact
I would do anything for love

But I’ll never do it better than I do it with you—so long—so long
And I would do anything for love
Oh—I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No—no I won’t do that

Coda:

Girl: Will you raise me up? Will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Boy: I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl: Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colorize my life? I’m so sick of black and white!
Can you make it all a little less old?

Boy: I can do that!
Oh—no I can do that!

Girl: Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with holy water if I get too hot?
Will you take me to places I’ve never known

Boy: I can do that!
Oh no—I can do that!

Girl: I know the territory, I’ve been around
It’ll all turn to dust and we’ll all fall down
Sooner or later you’ll be screwing around

Boy: I won’t do that!
No, I won’t do that!

Anything for love
Oh—I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that....
