I would fly ten thousand miles
Through the pouring rain
Just to see your face

I'd bare my soul to a total stranger
Just to say your name
And I'm not ashamed

Just to love you into every morning
I would change my name
And run away

I won't do it for money
I won't do it for pride
I won't do it to please somebody else
If it don't feel right

But I'll do it for you
And at least I'll try
I don't need any other reason
Than I feel it deep inside

I'll do it for love
I'll do it for love
(What I do for love)

I would write your name across the sky
So, the world could see
What you mean to me

I'd sing songs at the top of my voice
In an empty room
Just to dance with you

And to love you into every morning
I'll leave the world behind
And I'll slow down time

I won't do it for money, do it for money
I won't do it for pride, I won't do it for pride
I won't do it to please somebody else
If it don't feel right

But I'll do it for you
And at least I'll try
I don't need any other reason
Than I feel it deep inside

I'll do it for love
I'll do it for love

What I do for love can take us anywhere at all
Anywhere, anywhere

I won't do it for money, no
I won't do it for pride, do it for pride
I won't do it to please somebody else
If it don't feel right

But I'll do it for you
And at least I'll try
I don't need any other reason
Than I feel it deep inside

I'll do it for love
I'll do it for love

(What I do for love)
Than I feel it deep inside
(What I do for love)
I'll do it, baby
(What I do for love)

I won't do it for money
(What I do for love)
I won't do it for pride
I won't do it to please somebody
(What I do for love)
If it don't feel right

But I'll do it for you
And at least I'll try
(What I do for love)
