Whitesnake

Whitesnake is a British rock band, founded in 1978 by David Coverdale after his departure from his previous band, Deep Purple. Their early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple, but by the mid 1980s they had moved to a more commercial hard rock style. Four of the band's earliest albu… more »

Some people tell me
The blues ain't bad,
But, I've never know anything
Make me feel so sad
Running on empty, hurting to the core,
When everything don't mean nothing any more

From a distance
Every little thing looks fine,
But, the closer you get
You see the make up,
Cracked and lined
Somewhere there's a rainbow
With a pot of gold,
But, by the time you get there
It's been taken and sold 

So I keep saying, baby

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end

In my room
There are no shadows in the wall,
'Cause I closed up the window
So no light gets in at all.
It's a bad situation,
With no end in sight,
A heartache deep as the ocean
And darker than the night

So I keep saying to you, baby, 

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end 

With no one to lean on
You pray to the Lord above,
But, we keep hurting each other
In the name of love

All in the name of love

With no one to lean on
You pray to the Lord above,
But, we keep hurting each other
In the name of love

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end

All in the name of love,
It's all in the name of love, my friend,
All in the name of love
We all suffer in the end

All in the name of love
