Running, beyond the speed of sound
Calling, beyond the speed of sound
Say you love me, say you love yourself
Say you need me, say you care
Say you want me, say you want yourself
Say you want to be with me well

Christeen, that's all I ask of you

Falling, into the open doorway
Loving, what anyone else would loathe here...
Say you're with me, say you're with yourself
Say you're lonely, say you care
Say you warned me, say you warned yourself
Say you want to be with me well

Christeen, that's all I ask of you

Are you feeling okay?
Are you feeling so much pain
That never goes away
Oh, we know, and we're feeling so much better than before
What's more, is that feeling isn't failing anymore...

    General CommentThis is only my own interpretation but to me... this song is about acceptance and manifestation.
    It sounds like Devin here is talking about (to) someone who not only dislikes themselves and thinks they're unworthy of happiness but also won't admit they have a problem.
    The lines "Say you love me, say you love yourself" is obviously about self appreciation.
    Then comes the line "Loving what anyone else would loathe here" to me, means accepting all your flaws as a part of yourself.
    The whole bits about "Say you love/want me" I think is reassurance to the self that this person is worthy and deserving of love.
    And then, what line made me think that's what this is all about, "We know and we're feeling so much better than before" which could mean Devin's talking about accepting himself and feeling better for it and that the feeling doesn't "fail" anymore.

    Just my thoughts, anyway. Could be my mindset but this one song of his that speaks to me most, or at least close to it. Perfect for when you're feeling down about yourself. Always lifts my mood ^_^
