"I'd Love You To Want Me" as written by and Kent Lavoie....
When I saw you standing there
I about fell out my chair
And when you moved your mouth to speak
I felt the blood go to my feet

Now it took time for me to know
What you tried so not to show
Now something in my soul just cries
I see the want in your blue eyes

Baby, I'd love you to want me
The way that I want you
The way that it should be
Baby, you'd love me to want you
The way that I want to
If you'd only let it be

You told yourself years ago
You'd never let your feelings show
The obligation that you made
For the title that they gave

    General CommentThis is about a man who is in love with a nun. She gave an obligation of chastity in exchange for this "title" from the church.

    My InterpretationI agree with billko that it could be about a nun obliged to observe chastity for the 'title'. That fits the lyrics well.

    The song, the music is simply beautiful & simple. Pleasant to the ears. It was just a matter of chance that I discovered this song (an acquaintance's caller tune). I'd like to listen to more of such songs (which are rare these days except one songs like Bruno Mars' Just the Way You Are)

    To give it a broader meaning, the 'title' can be the things that come in the way of potential relationships (particularly those that are conscious choices made by one of the partners.) But the choice made by the partner is wrong! It didn't necessarily had had to be the way it turned out.

    My favorite part-
    "baby, I'd love you to want me
    the way that I want you
    the way that it should be"

    Never give up on your judgment of right or wrong even when it involves judging your near n dear ones. The singer recognizes the contrast between 'what is' as against 'what should be'. There should be this rigidity and firmness in your judgment which I admire.
