- For my True Love
For my true love, I would climb a mountain
I would cross the desert or sail the ocean blue
For my true love, I would face an army
I would fight a dragon or cut him right in two
I'd travel to the stars about
If I were asked by my true love
My true love
So come what may - I will go the distance
Let it hail and thunder
And still I will come though
There is nothing I won't do
For my true love, my true love, my true love
