Led Zeppelin - For Your Life Lyrics




You said I was the only, With my lemon in your hand
Exhibition is your habit, Emotion second hand.
Had to pull away to save me, Maybe next time around
And she said, 'don't you want it?
Don't you want cocaine-cocaine-cocaine
Hadn't planned to, could not stand to try it, fry it, na na na yeah.

Heard a cry for mercy, In the city of the damned
Oh oh babe, damned. Down in the pits you go no lower
The next stop's underground. Oh, hello underground.
Wine and roses ain't quite over, fate deals a losing hand
And I said: didn't mean to... did not mean to fail
You didn't plan it, you over-ran it

You wanna do it, you wanna
You wanna do it when you wanna
You wanna do it, do it when you wanna

When you blow it, babe, You got to blow it right
Oh baby, if you fake it, mama, Baby, fake with all your might
When you fake it, mama, Please fake it right (for yourself babe)

When you fake it baby,
You're fakin' it for your life, for your life, for your life, for your life
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, Do it when you wanna
Do it, do it, do it, Do it when you wanna

Oh, I can have you, baby, But I don't know what to do, yeah
Sometime, baby, nothin' I could do
On the balance of a crystal, Payin' through the nose
And when they couldn't resist you, I thought you'd go with the flow.

And now your stage is empty, bring down the curtain, baby please.
Fold up your show
Hadn't planned to, Could not stand to fry in it
Hadn't planned it, I over-ran it, (fryin)
For your life, For your life.

    I just cannot ever tire of Zeppelin. There is nothing out there that even comes close.
    If ever there was a touch of the devine, it would be no mistake to search here.
    If you have ever heard said, ..."If Led Zeppelin is Rock and Roll, nothing else is. That was right here.

    This song should have been buried at birth, it's a abortion.

  20. pascal mortera

    c'est pas eux qui conduisait !!

  21. Party Van!

    5:31 & 5:33 You hear snorting! Almost sounds like a pig.

  22. Robbie Starz

    Holy shit what a song! Definitely 1 of my favorite all time favorite Zeppelin tunes! The changes are genius throughout the whole song..The driven drums kill ..the band was so tight, at its best on Presence !! Jimmy's guitar tone is dead on amazing..Best sounding album in my opinion

  23. Tarik Bey

    This album cumz out of the gate totally kicking serious ass!!! Presence along with physical graffiti, r under appreciated champs!!!!!

  24. Darrell Calhoun

    Wtf at 5:06?

  25. Ziggyzag Zi

    Prog Rock ALbum! MagNif!

  26. Ken M.

    An interesting thing about Presence, is that there are no acoustic guitars on any of the tracks. The only Zeppelin album with that distinction.

  27. Sandeep Sreehari

    Got to be one of the greatest hard rock songs of all time !!! Jones & Page really nailed those riffs !!!

  28. Blake Gregory

    Imagine Robert Plant sick sitting in a chair and this great music is produced.....Their best album to me.

  29. oO MoG Oo

    The lick that starts at 2:08 always makes me think of Woody Woodpecker. :0)

  34. Jenn Koko

    Chaos.....uh oh....

  35. Nikolay G

    Bonzo beating the shit out of them cans

  36. Rose Kitty, Gray Kitty, and Jack Kitty

    This is no coincidence that still photos of Led Zeppelin really do move when you enter the higher realms of the mind just as this album cover is doing. I wonder if anyone else ever notices this.

    Rose Kitty, Gray Kitty, and Jack Kitty

    No one ever speaks/writes of the things I take notice of. I am not of this world. I prefer to hang out in realms of the mind as opposed to that of the physical.

  37. Dominic Charters

    What a track.

  38. Casey Jones

    Oh, I can have you, baby
    But I don't know what to do, yeah
    Sometime, baby
    Nothin' I could do
    On the balance of a crystal
    Payin' through the nose
    And when they couldn't resist you
    I thought you'd go with the flow
    And now your stage is empty, bring down the curtain, baby please
    Fold up your show
    Hadn't planned to
    Could not stand to fry in it
    Hadn't planned it
    I over-ran it

  39. Zac Heast

    WTF is with the video?

  40. Sreten Trifunovic

    I love this song! I adore Bonzo,love Jimmy and Plant is my idol but JPJ is most important figure of led zepp, because if it wasn't him zeppelin would fall apart lot before Bonzo's death!

  41. Nicolas Blanckaert

    To be honest, I prefer the 02 arena version

  42. Ziggyzag Zi

    2 and Prezentz Tied for 1! Jimmy's Genius shines

  43. 「 LoopZoopler 」

    The visuals accompanying the music are... Unique

  62. Paul Kenny

    Now you know where Billy Squire got ALL of his ideas

  63. Mark Gelbart

    4:16-5:04. Led Zeppelin finally played this live and Jimmy Page didn't remember how to play it.

    Nikolay G

    He was most certainly shitfaced haha

  64. Mark Gelbart

    The monkey on your back album produced by an heroin addict. This is my 3rd favorite Led Zeppelin song. Heavy drugs aren't as bad as they say, man. If they can make this while that fucked up, well than all those anti-drug shmucks must be wrong.

  65. Carl White

    C Wit, that's the GREATEST comment I've ever heard of LZ in my life!! And I AGREE.

  66. Rianna Ricco

  86. Calebe Priester

    I wish the band never ended...

    I wish they could have done more music for us :(

    You can clearly see how the band evolved, makes me wonder where they would lead the music as the decades went by...

    Steve Turowski

    Calebe Priester they ended just before I could see them! I was waiting to buy tickets but John Bonham died.

  87. Jared- Bones

  90. Marcos Tavares

    ☝✌👍👍👍❤❤❤❤❤

  91. Christopher Smith

    Mental.

  92. Mark Gelbart

    My 3rd favorite Led Zeppelin song.

  93. Lisa Hamlin

    All Zeps shit was badass, my party music back in the day, and I cant leave the sound behind, Plant vocals, page's riffs and Bonham' s drum banging, and Jones was an extraordinary bassist, leave this here, do it, if ya wanna

  94. Frederick Green

    If you seen interviews and pictures of the surviving members of Zeppelin you noticed one thing that John Paul Jones doesn't look like he's aged Jimmy Page Robert Plant they look like old men the white hare wrinkles John Paul Jones he keeps getting better looking he doesn't look like an old man it's amazing I wonder what Bonza would look like now with all that drinking probably pretty bad but it would have been great to still have him.

  95. Brian Alutius

    Shared this with my brother. Asked him how much weed he smoked listening to this song
    The answer? All of it

  96. mspraggins

    The very first time I heard the Presence album (the day it was released) ...blew me away. I was baffled why others didn't understand what an absoute masterpiece this was. I listen to it today and it still blows me away. Slowly, people have seemed to come around to it I think.

  97. trigilaen

    Frodo's wife

  98. nathan israel

    This is the greatest funk song of all time. James Brown's corpse is zombie-fuckin' his non-lubed dead ghost-hand to this song. He's all like "DAMN! I didn't have to spend so much money on inept motherfuckers playing multiple horns? I could just hire this guitar playing motherfucker to be the horn section?
    ...and have the funkiest gottdamn drummer ever?"

  99. anthony Voisin

    Great album ,my brother used to crank this album thru the whole dam neighborhood, loud as hell ,made me a zep fan for life.
