And I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that

Oh, I would do anything for love
No, I won't do that
Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're carved in ice

I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you
As long as the planets are turning
As long dreams are coming true

And I'l be there until the final act
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
Oh, I would do anything for love
No, I won't do that
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love

Some days I pray for soul
Some nights I lose the feeling
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

As long as the fires are burning
You'd better believe it, that I would do
Anything for love
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love

I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that

Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?

I can do that
Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you make it all a little less old?
I can do that

Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?

I can do that
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you take me places I've never known?
I can do that

It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
I won't do that

It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down

No, I won't do that
Anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
