Meat Loaf Lyrics


Meat Loaf was born in Dallas, Texas in the midst of
America’s post-World War II baby boom. In 1967, after
spending his childhood in the Lone Star State, he moved to
Los Angeles, California and then to Detroit, Michigan.

During the last few years of the ‘60s, Meat Loaf fronted a
band (in California and in and around Detroit) known
alternatively as Meat Loaf Soul, Popcorn Blizzard and the
Floating Circus, which opened for such rock and roll
superstars as the Kinks, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, MC5, Ted
Nugent, and Big Brother and the More...

Review about Meat Loaf songs
closer than any brothers that you ever knew | Reviewer: Annie
    ------ About the song Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are performed by Meat Loaf

My 16 year-old son's lifelong friend just died suddenly, at 17, from an illness last week and I never thought I'd experience what the 1st few stanzas describe, knowing someone in my lifetime who suffered this type of loss; but the pain is so great we've cried ourselves sick. His friend is in Heaven but my son has suffered a tremendous loss. You simply cannot go back to age 5 and start another friendship like this. I am the one who had to break the news to him and that line "I still recall the sting ..." is making my heart ache. These boys did everything together. They spent time together, growing up, in a legendary friendship not unlike that in "Stand By Me." This song keeps playing over and over in my head. The melody along with the words and Meat's operatic voice bring out the shearing pain. We will miss you forever and I will miss watching the happiness my son derived from having such a brotherly friend.

    ------ About the song Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are performed by Meat Loaf

You folks do realize that the song wasn't written by Meatloaf don't you? It's more likely that the lyrics reflect the life of Steadman ( the composer ); or, like any great writer, the lyrics come from a good imagination. Cry if you want but not for the Meat.

A song about love | Reviewer: Danny
    ------ About the song You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth performed by Meat Loaf

This song reminds me of my best friend, ellie. Greatest person i have ever met. I've wanted to tell her I love her but never been able to have a voice when I say it because we both know that if it never worked out then our friendship wouldnt be the same again. To be honest I hope she see's this, it would be easier if she saw it fr herself instead of me just piling the fact that i love her onto her. Meatloaf was a great musician, one of the best in fact.

    ------ About the song You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth performed by Meat Loaf

My father used to play this in the car on our two hour drive from my mother's house to his, and we would sing it duet style. It was the only happy times with him and Meatloaf's amazing words in song were a blessing and still are. I plan on playing this for my children. Amazing, simply Amazing.

Incredibly emotional song... | Reviewer: John
    ------ About the song Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are performed by Meat Loaf

I saw him in concert twice. He does not sing the 4 lines about his father in concert...if he tries, he starts to break down. I recall seeing somewhere it took 15 takes to get that done in the studio.

    ------ About the song I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) performed by Meat Loaf

The lyrics, including "that" are plain English. She asks him if he will do several amazing things for her, and he says "I can do that!" Then she says he will eventually get bored and screw around - and he says "I won't do that!" It's not rocket science, I can't see how this befuddled anyone, ever.

What I believe the whole song goes out on | Reviewer: Rebecka
    ------ About the song I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) performed by Meat Loaf

What i believe that which the song goes out on is sort of a summer fling between a girl and a boy. the girl believes like most summer flings end that the boy will move on and continue with his life while she will be dreaming and wishing for him to call or come back. At the end of the song you hear and read that this is what she says, however he corrects and reassures her that it wouldn't be true (this is when he says 'but I wont do that') He promises that even after this he would be with her and they could be together. :)

What "that" is | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) performed by Meat Loaf

I've never really understood the confusion with the lyrics of this song; they are about as straight forward as you can get. Meatloaf has said what the "that" which he is refering to is, in interviews and on an episode of Storytellers where he used a blackboard and pointer to explain. The three different "thats" are he will: "Never forget how you feel right now", "never forgive myself if we don't go all the way tonight", and "I'll never do it better than I do with you". The song is meant to be chivalrous in that he will do the good and noble things for the one he loves, but not the bad. Meatloaf has said that song reminds him of the world of Excaliber.

Hookers | Reviewer: Frank Le Bamba
    ------ About the song I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) performed by Meat Loaf

It's about hookers. He wants to hump her but he won't pay (for love). He is telling her he loves so shouldn't have to pay. She considers this then says "no, you're just saying that now but sooner or later you'll be screwing around with more hookers."
