"When You Say You Love Me" as written by and Darren Stanley/nowles Hayes....
I've been watchin' you from afar
And the way you make your way around the bar
You laugh like your really entertained
And you smile like it's your favorite game

Now you're movin' closer to me
Then our eyes are connected emotionally
I'm not lookin' for a one night stand
Or a place for a broken heart to mend

I know everybody here wants to hold ya
I know what it's like cause I feel the same
When you look in my eyes
There's a part of me that's still afraid

And when you say you love me
Do you mean it?
Baby when you hold me
Do you feel it?

Should I believe the magic in your eyes
I would wait until the end of time,
To hear you say you love me
Like you mean it
Baby when you hold me
Make me feel it

All I want to do is make you mine
I've been hurt way too many times

They say, if you want to make God laugh
Then all you gotta to do is tell him your plans
I know that the timing's not right
Didn't know that I would meet you tonight

It's not that I don't really like the attention
I feel like the only man in the room
Are you really sincere?
Is this just somethin' that you do?

And when you say you love me
Do you mean it?
Baby when you hold me
Do you feel it?

Should I believe the magic in your eyes
I would wait until the end of time,
To hear you say you love me
Like you mean it
Baby when you hold me
Make me feel it

All I want to do is make you mine
I've been hurt way too many times

Again and again and again
I've been hurt my friend til the end

You know I've been high, I've been low
I got no place left to go

Again and again and again
When will this search ever end?

And when you say you love me
Do you mean it?
Baby when you hold me
Do you feel it?

Should I believe the magic in your eyes
I would wait until the end of time,
To hear you say you love me
Like you mean it
Baby when you hold me
Make me feel it

All I want to do is make you mine
I would wait until the end of time

Baby say you love me
Come on baby say you love me

To hear you say you love me

    General CommentI totally agree /w Shorty9847. This is one of my fav. Clay Aiken songs. It's really upbeat 2. Everytime I hear it I just want 2 dance.

    General CommentI'm as big of a Clay fan as the next person, but this song is obviously about a stripper.

    The first paragraph describes her profession and the way he's there even though he wants true love.

    The chorus is his fight within himself, wanting so bad to be loved, and questioning if she cares about him even though he means nothing.

    In the third paragraph "It's not that I don't really like the attention" he is expressing that he likes what she's doing, fake attention or not, he cant help but enjoy himself. "I feel like the only man in the room.", this emphasizes her career; there are many other men in the room. "Are you really sincere, is this just something that you do?", he is still torn: He wants to believe that with him it is real and more than just the girl paying her rent.

    The last paragaph is just repeating how much he wants love, and how he doesnt want to be hurt again (why he turns to a stripper: shallow love, even though he ends up being infatuated anyway)
