about

You're right, these *are* the same lyrics as track number one. We recorded two versions of this song during the bedtracks sessions. One rocker, one late night bar version. And when it came time to pick one for the album we just couldn't do it. Instead we decided to make this version a kind of "bonus track" in the middle of the song listings.

lyrics

You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything… for love.

So throw out the roses
Drop your crinoline
Underneath the cover of another’s wing

So throw out your gloves
Step out of the ring
Underneath the cover of another’s sting

You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything… for love.

La-La-Lala La, La-La-Lala La…love

So throw out the ashes
Shed your old bearskin
Underneath the cover of a talisman

You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything… for love.

La-La-Lala La, La-La-Lala La…love

So throw off your wheel
You’re no Catherine
Underneath the covers you’re a puritan

You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything… for love.
You’ll do anything
You’ll do anything, you’ll do anything, you’ll do anything
You’ll do anything… for love.
