Take a look at unselected cases
You'll find love has been wrecked
By both sides compromising
Amounting to a disastrous effect

You hear stories of old of princes bold
With riches untold, happy souls
Casting it all aside to take some bride
To have the girl of their dreams at their side

But not me, I couldn't do that
Not me, I'm not like that

I couldn't sacrifice
Anything at all to love

I really like you I'm attracted to you
The way you move, the things you do
I'll probably burn in hell for saying this
But I'm really in heaven whenever we kiss

But oh no! You won't change me
You can try for an eternity

I wouldn't sacrifice
Anything at all to love

Take a look at unselected cases
You'll find love has been wrecked
By both sides compromising
Amounting to a disastrous effect

Now I've got things to do you have too
And I've got to be me, you've got to be you
So take my hand and feel these lips
And let's savor a kiss like we'd savor a sip

Of vintage wine one more time
Let's surrender to this love divine

But we won't sacrifice
Anything at all to love
