(Skip Ewing/Doug Stone)

He said baby I love you
And she believed it was true
In the back seat of his Malibu they made love
For the worst and for the best
With their best friends as their guests
And in her mama's wedding dress she said I do

She did it in the name of love
She did it in the name of love
He was all she was thinking of
She did it in the name of love
Did it in the name of love
It's amazing what a heart's prepared to do
In the name of love

Forever didn't last too long
A few short months and he was gone
But the love they made was growing strong inside her
She said I can't afford to raise him right
She asked for help but got advice
Couldn't choose to take a life so she had a child

She did it in the name of love
She did it in the name of love
He was all she was thinking of
She did it in the name of love
Did it in the name of love
It's amazing what a heart's prepared to do
In the name of love

She drove by his house today
And from a distance watched him play
Never gave herself away and cried
Now the only thing that keeps her sane
Is knowing deep inside
