  • Tonight it's very clear as we're both lyin' here
    There's so many things I want to say
    I will always love you
    I would never leave you alone

    Sometimes I just forget, say things I might regret
    It breaks my heart to see you cryin'
    I don't want to lose you
    I could never make it alone

    I am a man who will fight for your honor
    I'll be the hero you're dreamin' of
    We'll live forever, knowin' together
    That we did it all for the glory of love

    You keep me standing tall, you help me through it all
    I'm always strong when you're beside me
    I have always needed you
    I could never make it alone

    I am a man who will fight for your honor
    I'll be the hero you've been dreamin' of
    We'll live forever, knowin' together
    That we did it all for the glory of love

    It's like a knight in shining armor from a long time ago
    Just in time I will save the day
    Take you to my castle far away

    I am a man who will fight for your honor
    I'll be the hero that you're dreamin' of
    We're gonna live forever, knowin' together
    That we did it all for the glory of love

    We'll live forever (we'll live forever), knowin' together (knowin' together)
    That we did it all for the glory of love

    Ooh
    We did it all for love
    We did it all for love
    We did it all for love
    We did it all for love Writer/s: David Foster, Diane Nini, Peter Cetera

  • Lisa from HoustonThe day after my brother passed away, my sister was listening to the radio and the channel went to static and switched to another station playing this song. She felt our brother wanted us to get a message. There are portions of this song that make us think of him and where he is now..."Gonna live forever" "We did it all for the glory of love" "Take you to my castle far away", these phrases definitely make us think of him in heaven. Thank you for this beautiful song Peter Cetera.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyWas nominated for Best Song at the 1986 Academy Awards {Lost to "Take My Breathe Away" from the movie "Top Gun"}!!!
  • Mark from Seattle, WaIn conversation Peter once told me this song was orginally created for one of the ROCKY movies but that producers didn't want to pay the fee...Cetera walked out and down the hall when approached by producers of Karate Kid II who were in need of a song for the movie...what luck and what a better situation too! Nice work Cetera!
  • Jimmy Hughes from Frostburg, MdThis was also used in an episode of Yes Dear.
  • Michelle from Manchester, NhThis is one of my absolute favorite songs. It's so romantic and could only wish to have someone feel this way about me.
