What You Won't Do For Love

Lyrics: Bobby Caldwell, Alfons Kettner
Music: Bobby Caldwell, Alfons Kettner

Played by Garcia with Saunders in Reconstruction. Often wrongly listed as "L-O-V-E". Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

I guess you'll wonder where I bin
I searched to find a love within
But I came back to let you know
I got a thing for you and I can't let go

My friends wonder what is wrong with me
Well I'm in a daze from your love you see
And I came back to let you know
I got a thing for you and I can't let go

Some people go around the world for love
But they may never find what they dream of

What you won't do for love
You try everything but you don't give up
And in my world only you baby
Make me do for love what I would not do

My friends wonder what is wrong with me
Well I'm in a daze from your love you see
I came back to let you know
Oh I got a thing for you and I can't let go

Although I only want the best it's true
I can't believe the things I do for you

What you won't do for love
You try everything but you don't give up
And in my world only you baby
Make me do for love what I would not do

You make me do for love what I would not do
You make me do for love what I would not do

You make me do things (note 1)
I need your love to see me through
Do for love what I would not do

(What you won't do)
L O V E, love, L O V E, love
(What you won't do)
L O V E, love, L O V E, love
(What you won't do)
L O V E, love, L O V E, love
(What you won't do)
L O V E, love, L O V E, love
