"For You" as written by J. D. Martin and Don Schlitz....
I waited for you
I died inside my own head
And I'd die again for you

I'm faded and tired
Completely uninspired
And I'd die again for you

So kill me with the love that you won't give to me
And pack the wound with salt I want to feel it bleed

I'm searching for reasons
To keep away the demons
And I'd die again for you
I wish you were near me
Could feel it when you hear me say
I'd die again for you

So kill me with the love that you won't give to me
And pack the wound with salt I want to feel it bleed
You wanted me to crawl so now I'm on my knees

Why's it always have to be me
That's always left out to burn and
I'll never learn

    General Commentsmile empty soul....my personal therapy cd, somehow depressing songs that describe my situations pick me up, like this one made me see what was going on between me and my best-friend.....we had a rough year, and this is what he put me through, so i spent 5 hours just listening to this song once and went back to school and talked to him about it all and we're cool now.....see, therapy cd

    General CommentThis song means that this person waited for a person for the longest time, and just wanted to be with them AGAIN, so this isn't the first time they were together. He wants this person back, and she won't give his love to him, so he wants to feel the pain she gives to him, but not just any pain.. a Pain that she is Literally GIVING him. He wants her to show him that she doesn't really like him, and PROVE IT, but hurting him. And if she really doesn't love him, then just kill him there, because he has no reason to live if she doesn't want to be with him, and if she doesn't feel the same way for him as he does for her! All he wants if to be with her again, and for sum reason she is holding back. Maybe he cheated on her and he relized he fucked up! IDK.. but whatever he did he fucked up.. THIS SONG GOES OUT TO YOU! YEA.. U KNOW WHO U ARE! U KNOW WHAT U DID, AND HOW MUCH U FUCKIN MESSED UP AND WANTED ME BACK, AND I GAVE U A SECOND CHANCE AND NOW THERE AIN'T SHIT THAT WE CAN HAVE TOGETHER NO MORE... I STILL LOVE YOU, BUT GOD U FUCKED UP!

    General CommentI think this song talks about how he loves a girl but she refuses to return the love. So she is kiling him the the love that she refuses the give to him. All he wants is that little bit of love that she wont let him have. He wants to show how much he cares and feel the pain.
