"I'd Die For You" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Desmond Child and Richard Sambora....
If you could see inside my heart
Then you 'd understand
I'd never mean to hurt you
Baby I'm not that kind of man

I might not say I'm sorry
Yeah, I might talk tough sometimes
And I might forget the little things
Or keep you hanging on the line

In a world that don't know Romeo and Juliet
Boy meets girl and promises we can't forget
We are cast from Eden's gate with no regrets
Into the fire we cry

I'd die for you
I'd cry for you
I'd do anything
I'd lie for you
You know it's true
Baby I'd die for you
I'd die for you
I'd cry for you
If it came right down to me and you
You know it's true, baby I'd die for you

I might not be a savior
And I'll never be a king
I might not send you roses
Or buy you diamond rings

But if I could see inside you
Maybe I'd know just who we are
'Cause our love is like a hunger
Without it we would starve

In a world that don't know Romeo and Juliet
Boy meets girl and promises we can't forget
We are cast from Eden's gate with no regrets
Into the fire we cry

I'd die for you
I'd cry for you
I'd do anything
I'd lie for you
You know it's true
Baby I'd die for you
I'd die for you
I'd cry for you
If it came right down to me and you
You know it's true, baby I'd die for you

I'd die for you
I'd cry for you
I'd do anything
I'd lie for you
You know it's true
Baby I'd die for you
I'd die for you
I'd cry for you
If it came right down to me and you
You know it's true, baby I'd die for you

Oh oh oh
Baby it's only for you
It's only for you
Oh oh oh
Baby it's only for you
It's only for you

    General CommentIt's about the bigger things in a relationship. Yeah the small things are important but really it's the big things that show how much you love someone. Would you die for the one you love?

    General Commentwhat's that suppossed to mean? if u do not know, then why are u even saying that for no reason?
    anyway.....i think this is a really great song. I think it might be about a guy who acts like he doesn't care in the relationship, but in reality he loves her so much and he would do anything for her, even if he doesn't show it or act like it

    General CommentThis song was one of the first songs i played for my boyfriend on the guitar (don't ask how i did it, it's fuckin' hard to explain) but this showed how much i loved him and that i will never stop loving him.

    This song is about the bigger things in the relationship like commitment and trust and honesty because there's more to a relationship than just being together.

    General Commenti just stummbled upon this song again, i havent heard it since i was a kid, but now i know what it means, it is my life with my boyfriend, we had alot of issues the first 3 years,no trust, insecurity,all that good stuff but it wasnt til we broke up and he got in trouble and tho i didnt have to,i lied to alot of ppl so he wouldn't go to jail.we finally realized that we wld do anything for each other,he lied to keep me out of something in the past and i did the same for him.It brought us back together,stronger than ever,because we both knew how eachother really felt!hopefully it doesnt end up with the dying part, but when you truly love someone ( as tough as you try to be ) you find you do whatever u have to for that other person!and that is what the songs about!p.s. i still dont like po po's !

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! It reminds me so much of the guy I love more than anything in the world, and I know I always will. He is simply the greatest, funniest, most charming guy I've ever met. I know I'd do anything for him, I'd die for him, I'd lie for him, I'd cry for him. He means the world to me, but at the moment I don't think he feels the same way. But I know we will work it out, because we are perfect for each other. We are a perfect match, so I know we will work it out and have a great life together. He just needs to understand how much he means to me, and I know I mean a lot more to him than he thinks. I'd die for you, I'd cry for you, I'd do anything, I'd lie for you. You are my everything, please understand that. I'd do anything for you.
