Lyrics 

Look into my eyes

You will see, what you mean to me

Search your heart, search your soul

When you find me there, you’ll search no more

Don’t tell me it’s not worth trying for

You can’t tell me it’s not worth dying for

You know it’s true (you know it’s true)

Everything I do

I do it for you

Yeah, yeah

Look into your heart, you will find

There is nothing there to hide

Take me as I am, take my life

I would give it all, I would sacrifice

Don’t tell me it’s not worth fighting for

I can’t help it, there’s nothing I want more

You know it’s true

Everything I do

I do it for you

There’s no love, like your love

And no other, could give me more love

There’s nowhere, unless you’re there

All the time, all the way

You can’t tell me it’s not worth trying for

Just can’t help it, there’s nothing I want more

Oh, I would fight for you, yeah, I’d lie for you

Walk the wire for you, yeah, I’d die for you

You know it’s true

Everything I do

I do for you
