    I would like to ask in what sense the word death-defying is used in the lyrics below. I have looked it up and found it means something very dangerous but I cannot help thinking in this case it could mean love so strong it can defies death. Can anybody solve my dilema?

    "...IŽll protect you from the hooded claw
    Keep the vampires from your door
    When the chips are down IŽll be around
    With my undying, death-defying
    Love for you ..."

    Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Power Of Love, song lyrics.

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Death-defying

    I think it's another way of saying "eternal."

    Ignoring the dictionary definition might solve the problem. It seems that Frankie didn't pay it much attention.
