The Next Song is sung by Meatloaf [not one of my favorite acts BUT damn he can sing]





"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'd 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
No, I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end

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

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 dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And I'll be there until the final act

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

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

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul

Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
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
That's just one and only, the 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'd 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
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
No, no, no, I won't do...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

CHORUS

But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
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, I won't do that

[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 colourise 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 make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

[Boy:]
I can do that
I can do that

[Girl:]
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?

Will you hose
me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?


[Boy:]
I can do that
Oh no, I can do that


[Girl:]
After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on


[Boy:]
I won't do that
I won't 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


Okie Dokey Now for this song your topics could be

seduction [of any kind not just sexual seduction]
longing [for anything .... not just sex]
passion [again for anything]
love [of course ;)]
doubt
fear
fantasy
excape
denial

Can anyone think of more? ahhhh DRIVING!

    Hey Sis, starting to come up for air. Verity loves school, but got sick with a cold after her first day!!! It's been one thing or another. But things are improving and I hope to FINALLY (@##$) get my email tomorrow. Top of my list. Oh, lol, that and taking a bath. I miss baths. Hey, love this contest idea and sent you one. As far as other topics...hmm... trust, promises, the past, heartbreak, desperation, truth, commitment, umm, I could keep going, lol. Miss ya, sending hugs... I'm off to bed. Will stop by here some time tomorrow. I feel like someone who has been down in a mine for three weeks and has just seen the sun. HOLY CRAP My Captcha is CRY? Honest to goodness, CRY??? LOL.. sheesh

    Hello, gorgeous! Question: do we have to write a poem/song? I mean, using rhyme and repetition (chorus). You know that I'm not a rhyme-fan...(You also know that I'm not writing LOL!) Have a great day.

    I think you said that you were going to write a poem in your last comment?I keep it to your word..and hey im entering the contest trying to overcome my phobia.I need some moral support : )
  1. Date: 9/10/2013 10:00:00 AM
    CORRECT Becca the poems are to be about things YOU know about from your own experience, use your own emotions and senses [it can be fantast too but that is hard because its not real and didn't actually happen to you!]
