"Anything for You" as written by and Matthew Palermo Andrew Volpe....
My ancestors planted some sequoias by a road
I've driven down that road since I was born
Oh never have you ever seen so many perfect evergreens
But I would chop them all down just for you

I have walked a million miles in a hundred pairs of shoes
In search of some universal truth
Well a deity just came to me and handed me a scroll to read
And I will gladly pass it on to you

Anything for you
All of this is true
But the best story that I could ever tell
Is the one where I am growing old with you

I was having rotten luck and nothing went my way
'Til I stumbled on a clearing in the woods
I found a town of leprechauns and grabbed each one for wishing on
But I would let them all go just for you

I have crossed a natural plane and communed with the dead
But people always seem to want some proof
No one even would believe my luck of evil I got pictures of
But I would throw them all out just for you

Anything for you
All of this is true
But the best story that I could ever tell
Is the one where I am growing old with you

My scar is from a polar bear, my curse is from a witch
I've caught a giant squid in all the seven seas
I've picked up rocks from distant moons astronomers will discover soon
But I would give them all back just for you

I've gotten drunk and shot the breeze with kings of far off lands
They showed me wealth as far as I could see
But their kingdoms seemed all shriely and they cried with jealousy
When I leaned in and told them about you

I'd give up anything
Anything for you
I'd give it all
All of this is true
But the best story that I could ever tell
Is the one where I am growing old with you

All I've ever wanted see, was to tell you honestly
I'd do anything for you
I'd do absolutely anything for you

    My InterpretationI feel like it's about a man who has gone insane for some reason and the only things that keeps him tethered to reality at all is this girl who he is so in love with.
