Every night that I held you
Made heaven from hell, yea
I did it for love

Like the change of the season
You grew cold for that reason
I did it for love

And when it all went wrong
And there's no use hanging on
I turned and walked away

Chorus:
I did it, I did it, I did it for love
Now you wanna know
Why I let you go
I did it for love
Well, I thought that I was tough
Well, I guess I'm not tough enough
I didn't do it for the glory
I did it for love

When you were lost in the night
And you feared for your life
I came running to you

And as I held you so tight
You said forever you and I
But girl, I knew

And now you stand and you say
How could I walk away
I love you too much to stay

(chorus)

Oh, I remember how it started
And we felt so alive
And the passion was burning inside
There's a lesson in love
When the heart grows wild

Well, I thought that I was tough
Well, I guess I ain't tough enough

I did it for love
Oh, Oh

I did it, I did it, I did it for love
Now you wanna know
Why I let you go
I did it for love

    If you ever really loved someone but don't anymore, you'd let them go before you'd let them stay in something that wasn't really love.
