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
