anything for you lyrics – ludo

“anything for you”

my ancestors planted some sequoias by a road
i’ve driven down that road since i was born
oh, never have you ever seen so many perfect evergreens
but i would chop them all down just for you

i have walked a million miles in a hundred pairs of shoes
in search of some universal truth
well a deity just came to me and handed me a scroll to read
and i will gladly p*ss it on to you.

anything for you
all of this is true
but the best story that i could ever tell
is the one where i am growing old with you.

i was having rotten luck and nothing went my way
’til i stumbled on a clearing in the woods.
i found a town of leprechauns and grabbed each one for wishing on
but i would let them all go just for you.

i have crossed a natural plane and communed with the dead
but people always seem to want some proof.
no one even would believe, my love, that evil i got pictures of
but i would throw them all out just for you.

anything for you
all of this is true

but the best story that i could ever tell
is the one where i am growing old with you

my scar is from a polar bear, my curse is from a witch,
i’ve caught a giant squid in all the seven seas.
i’ve picked up rocks from distant moons astronomers will discover soon
but i would give them all back just for you.

i’ve gotten drunk and shot the breeze with kings of far off lands
they showed me wealth as far as i could see.
but their kingdoms seemed all shrivelly and they cried with jealousy
when i leaned in and told them about you.

i’d give up anything
(anything for you)
i’d give it all
(all of this is true)
but the best story that i could ever tell
is the one where i am growing old with you.

all i’ve ever wanted, see, was to tell you honestly
i’d do anything for you.
i’d do absolutely anything for you.
