do what?

SO my coworkers and i were listening to this song and we were all like "wont do what?? wont do what?"
and we were guessing and messing around...
apparently, in the end the song told us LOL

so read parts of the lyrics and tell me what you think he wont do ;)

I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)
- Meatloaf

And I would do anything for love, I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love, I'll never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now, oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that, I won't do that
Anything for love, oh I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that, oh I won't do that

But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way tonight
And I would do anything for love, oh I would do anything for love
Oh I would do anything for love, but I won't do that, no I won't do that

Some days I pray for silence, and somedays I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N Roll
Some nights I lose the feeling, and some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls



[Girl:] After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

[Boy:] I won't do that! No I won't do that!

[Girl:] I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
And sooner or later, you'll be screwing around

[Boy:] I won't do that! No I won't do that!

Anything for love, oh I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that, no I won't do that

Some have found the lyrics of the song cryptic and claim that the singer never identifies what the "that" is that he is unwilling to do. [2] [3] Although some people assume that "that" is an exophoric reference to a sex act, it is actually an anaphoric reference to the varying activities specified as antecedents in the lyric that the singer says that he won't do.

"I'll never forget the way you feel right now ..."
"I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way tonight ..."
"I'll never do it better than I do it with you ..."
"I'll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life ..."

In addition, the female vocalist identifies two other things that the lead singer denies that he will do: "You'll see that it's time to move on" and "You'll be screwing around." To both of these, the lead singer responds, "I won't do that! No, I won't do that!"

yeah i figured that the singer wont cheat. that's what he wont do right?

altho all of my coworkers messed around and joked how it's a sex act just like what was stated earlier.

I never really thought about it until they started airing it during that Pepsi commercial and I assumed it was either about not ever breaking her heart because he loves her or never breaking his own integrity regardless of how much he loves her.
