What is "that?"

Many music fans have wondered exactly what Meat Loaf wouldn't do for love.  It's a reference to his 1993 hit, I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That).

People didn't get it.

In an interview with Yahoo, the singer explained the song.  Jim Steinman, the guy who wrote the song, thought that people might not understand the song.  Meat Loaf disagreed, but it turns out that Steinman was right.

"That" is the line before every chorus.  So, "I'll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life...I'll do anything for love, but I won't do that."

 

forget the way you feel right now; forgive himself if you don’t go all the way tonight; do it better than he does it with you, so long; and stop dreaming of you every night of his life
