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, I won’t do that

I honestly don’t think anyone knows. I think he intentionally wrote the song for it to be open-ended, that way it would appeal to most people, so they could pretty much fill in the blank.

I know the answer! He means he’ll never cheat, never let the relationship end. He’ll never stop loving her. It’s in the lyrics, just not directly!

“You’ll see that it’s time to move on”

“You’ll be screwing around”

Wow, kind of a letdown. I was hoping that “that” would be more,,, ummmm, titillating lol

He probably meant he’d never change his name to something that warrants a little more dignity. Meatloaf? Really? And I’m supposed to take you seriously?

It was Meatloaf, I don’t think he’s all that deep…but that’s a fun song to sing along with! Maybe he has other “things” he won’t do…? What won’t you do @KalWest ?

LOL —- there’s not a whole lot i won’t do… well accept one specific thing….. That, er, I don’t find enjoyable. Without getting into it (cough) – it’s what lots of people think that all gay people do. I’ll leave it at that – I’ve shared WAAAAYYY too much already LOL

I always found this song a bit annoying. It would have been interesting, but much different, if he said that even in the name of love he would not forsake his principles, give up on his ambitions or abandon his family.

@bythebay I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who knew the answer to this question!
