Communication
I wait to see if we could ever get together and talk like we used to
We get together and we talk like we used to
But you don't want to. You want a separation
And now that's strike three
I tried everything I know
It's so hard for you to constantly hear how I fail and abandon you
I put my heart in a dream, and now that dream it makes sure the baby
She has food to eat, and your fancy house gets paid for, ya hear me?
You never learned one thing, no you never believed in me
So if you're gonna leave get out, just remember this is what I'm all about

I do it for the love
Do it for the rain
I do it for the passion, do it for the pain
I do it for the rush
I do it for the doubt
I do it for my daughter, man, she's what I'm about
I do it for my mom
Do it for my dad
I do it for my sanity, it's hanging from a thread
I do it for the audience who understands the need
Sittin on a stage, cut the shit and let it bleed
So pack it up, pack it in. Write it up, write it down
Just remember that I told you it's what I'm all about

I'll miss the tour you told me not to come home again
The next boyfriend was taking my place at our first Lamaze
How hard that was because, cuz you were always so crooked and wrong
You would bury your intentions like a motherfuckin nuclear bomb
I lived in a hotel room til the day she was born
And I never knew what was to say
That could get us through our first chance at divorce
Your promise changin I believe, don't wanna run right back into the same
So if you're gonna leave, yeah, go away

I do it for the love
I do it for the rain
I do it for the passion, do it for the pain
Do it for the rush
Do it for the doubt
I do it for my daughter, man, she's what I'm about
I do it for my mom
Do it for my dad
Do it for my sanity, hanging from a thread
I do it for the audience who understands the need
Sittin on the stage cut the shit and let it bleed

I do it for my brother, I do it for his wife
I do it for my manager, he's god, he saved my life
I do it for the confidence
Do it for release
I do it cuz I'm sick of feelin sad, it's a full of peace
I do it for the sunshine, for my friends
I did it for you, for you over and over and over again
But you would never understand
So pack it up, pack it in. Write it up, write it down
Just remember that I told you it's what I'm all about
Get out! Go away!


I do it for the love
Do it for the rain
Do it for the passion, do it for the pain
Do it for the rush
I do it for the doubt
I do it for my daughter, man, she's what I'm about
I do it for my mom
Do it for my dad
I do it for my sanity, it's hanging from a thread
I do it for the audience who understands the need
Sittin on the stage cut the shit and let it bleed

I do it for the love
For the love
Do it for the love
For the love
Yeah, I do it for the love
Do it, do it, do it
For the love
For my daughter
So pack it up, pack it in. Write it up, write it down
Just remember that I told you it's what I'm all about

    General CommentI'm fairly confident about the lyrics, except the line: "I do it for my man, I do it for his wife". I don't think he says my man, but I couldn't understand what he was saying, and that was the closest I could figure. So if you have a better answer, tell me and I'll gladly correct the lyrics. I'ma be pissed if it's something simple lol
