"It's Me" as written by and Shaw/cooper/blades....
You took a first-class trip to Paris
You danced in the streets of Spain
You followed the sun to Rio de Janeiro
Cuz you got so sick and tired of the
London rain
But honey, late at night
When you close your tired eyes
You'll be there
And I'll be here
And one of us will cry

It's me, it's me
When you need something more
Something you're dying for
It's me, it's me
When you can't see too clear
Baby, I'm always near
It's me

You played your cards, you felt the sorrow
'Cuz all that dealer dealt was pain
But baby, where you gonna play tomorrow
The stakes were too damn high
And now, you're broke again
You can trip around til all your money's blown
But who's the man that'll take you in
When all your luck is gone

It's me, it's me
What are you searching for
I know you can find my door
It's me, it's me
I know you've sinned every sin
But I'll still take you in
It's me

And me, I'm sitting here
Nothing much has changed
You broke my heart to pieces, babe
But that's nothing strange
Well, I ain't angry
That's all come and gone
My arms are still open wide girl
To catch you when you fall

And if someday you realize
Just where you belong
I'm the man that'll take you in
When all your luck is gone
It's me, it's me

When you need something more
Something you're dying for
It's me, it's me
When you can't see too clear
Baby, I'm always near

It's me, it's me
What are you searching for
I know you can find my door
It's me, it's me
I know you've sinned every sin
But I'll still take you in
It's me
Yeah, baby, it's me

    My InterpretationThe Last Temptation is his third best solo album. I used to be bored by the song, but then I realized that the girl just symbolizes a person in general and the narrator is God. That's kind of sweet, I think. The person in the song has been sinning and moving from place to place, trying to find a meaning to their life, and God's waiting patiently for them to come back to Him. It's pretty evident in the lyrics, "What are you searching for? I know you can find my door" and "I know you've sinned every sin, but I will still take you in." Anyway, it's a religiously themed concept album, and so the love song of the album would of course be about God's forgiveness. This is just my interpretation, so if you're an Atheist, don't be offended.

    General CommentWhile this song has Christian overtones, like most of this album, I'm not sure "me" is supposed to be God. I interpret as a song from the perspective of the "nice guy" who pursued a woman who turned out to be self-destructive, he sees, partly rightly, that she would be happier in the long run with him, but she's pursuing other men " til all your money's blown" etc.
