Meat Loaf - I'd Do Anything For Love



This was Meat Loaf's comeback song. In 1977, his album Bat Out Of Hell produced the hits "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad," "Paradise By The Dashboard Light," and "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth," all written by the piano player Jim Steinman. After a falling out with Steinman and difficulty in his personal life, Meat Loaf released several unsuccessful albums before reuniting with Steinman for Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell, which was considered a sequel to the 1977 album.


"I'd Do Anything For Love" has a very similar sound to Meat Loaf's previous hits, and the bombastic, piano-driven style went over well with his old fans as well as a new generation of listeners, helping make this a massive hit.



Lyrics


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- 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 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 Oh 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 till the final act And I would do anything for love! And I'll take the 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... 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 'N' Roll And 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 And 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! And there'll never be no turning back 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. 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... 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... 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... I would do anything for love Anything you've been dreaming of But I just won't do... But I'll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life No way 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 Will you raise me up? Will you help me down? Will you help get me right out of this Godforsaken town? Will you make it all a little less cold? I can do that! I can do that! 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 I can do that! Oh, Oh, I can do that! Will you make me some magic with your own two hands? Can you build an Emerald city with these grains of sand? Can you give me something I can take home? I can do that I can do that Will you cater to every fantasy I've got? Will ya hose me down with holy water - If I get too hot? Will you take me to places I'll never know? I can do that! I can do that! After a while you'll forget everything Just a brief interlude, and a mid-summer night's fling Then you'll see that it's time to move on I won't do that I won't do that 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 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...
