(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

It's the spell that can't be broken
It's your breath upon my neck
It's the words I long to tell you but haven't yet
It's the need to see you constantly
And the need to be alone
Just to balance out what's left of me
And what's too far gone
What if the night complied, bringing you to my door
What if I let you in, baby, isn't that what the night is for?

In the name of love there's nothing that I would not do
In the name of love I'd lose myself to find you
In the name of love.....

It's the prayer I send up daily for some courage and some pride
When your hand brushes my shoulder and our eyes collide
It's the smallest of seductions and the quietest of lures
And I'm all at once an innocent in the big bad world
But what if the night conspired, bringing you to my door
Why should I turn you away now, I don't want to wait anymore

In the name of love there's nothing that I would not do
In the name of love I'd lose myself to find you
In the name of love.....

But when the darkness fades, giving way to morning light
You will find me gone, to carry on the lonely fight

In the name of love there's nothing that I would not do
In the name of love I'd lose myself to find you
In the name of love.....
