"I'm Gonna Love Her For Both Of Us" as written by and Jim Steinman....
I can't stand to see it no more
The way you're living with a goddess, but you treat her like a slave
And you can't hold her back anymore
She's like a dreamer in a dungeon, or an angel in a cave

And I'll be closer to you now than any other boy
And you know that what I'm saying is true
You're gonna break her up, and tear her down, and fade her away
And then there's no telling what I'm gonna do

I'll make you pay for everything that you do
I'll make you pay for everything that you do

But if you give me your girl, and then you give me your trust
And if you give me till the end of the night
I'm gonna love her for both of us
I'm gonna give her everything you always wanted to give
I'm gonna love her for both of us
I'm gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live

I'll let her shine like a jewel in the crown of the holy sun
You turned her into a ghost, but she'll be burning when the night is done
I'll let her shine like a jewel in the crown of the holy sun
You turned her into a ghost, but she'll be burning when the night is done
You gotta give me your girl and your trust
I'm gonna love her for both of us

You can't hide away anymore
You had a chance, but you blew it, and you'll never get it back
And your holiness was never so pure
She needs a fire in the heart and not a stabbing in the back

And I'll be closer to you now than any other boy
And you know that what I'm saying is true
You're gonna break her up, and tear her down, and fade her away
And then there's no telling what I'm gonna do

I'll make you pay for everything that you do
I'll make you pay for everything that you do

But if you give me your girl, and then you give me your trust
And if you give me till the end of the night
I'm gonna love her for both of us
I'm gonna give her everything you always wanted to give
I'm gonna love her for both of us
I'm gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live

I'll let her shine like a jewel in the crown of the holy sun
You turned her into a ghost, but she'll be burning when the night is done
I'll let her shine like a jewel in the crown of the holy sun
You turned her into a ghost, but she'll be burning when the night is done
You gotta give me your girl and your trust
I'm gonna love her for both of us

When the screws are tightenin', and the tears are falling
I can hear her crying out to be saved
And like a bolt of lightning, I go answer the call
But she's singing like a siren to me over the waves

I never wanted to take away your lover
Until I heard her crying out to be saved
I always thought of you as one of my brothers
But she's singing like a siren to me over the waves
Singing like a siren to me over the waves
There ain't no holding me down!

I'll let her shine like a jewel in the crown of the holy sun
You turned her into a ghost, but she'll be burning when the night is done
I'll let her shine like a jewel in the crown of the holy sun
You turned her into a ghost, but she'll be burning when the night is done
You gotta give me your girl and your trust
I'm gonna love her for both of us

I'm gonna love her for both of us, I'm gonna love her for both of us

I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)

I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live)

I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna take her every moment that she wanted to live)
I'm gonna love her for both of us
(Gonna give her everything you always wanted to give)

    General CommentI agree with what people have said before, but I also whenever I hear the song it reminds me of the relationship between Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman -- the bitterness there was between them, the fact that he'd write the songs while Meat would sing them, and the fact that eventually he recorded his own album...

    General CommentIts about a guy treating his girlfriend badly, and his best mate saying, "look fella, you're with a top girl and you treat like rubbish, I love you like a brother, but if you dont do something about this, I will."
