"Love Me For Me" as written by and John/peiken Shanks....
It's been three days
You come around here like you know me
You're stuck in my place
Next thing you know, you'll be using my toothpaste
Step up, sit down
Get ready, let me tell you who's the boss now
Stay here, get out
Everytime i turn around you're in my face

Don't care where you think you've been, and how you're getting over
If you think you've got me found
Just wait it gets much golder

Here I am,
As perfect as i'm ever gonna be
You'll see
Love me for me
Stick around,
I'm not the kinda girl you want to leave
You'll see
Love me for me

Shut up, come back
Know i didn't really mean to say that
I'm mixed up, so what
Yea you want me so you're messed up too
I love you, I hate you
If you only knew what i've been through

My head is spinnin'
But my heart is in the right place
Sometimes it has to have it's self a little earthquake

Here I am,
As perfect as i'm ever gonna be
You'll see
Love me for me
Stick around,
I'm not the kinda girl you want to leave
You'll see
Love me for me

I've been waiting all my life
To finally find you
Just so i can push you away
And when you're crawlin on broken glass to get to me
That's when i'll let you stay

Oh, here I am
As perfect as i'm ever gonna be
You'll see
Love me for me
Stick around,
I'm not the kinda girl you want to leave
You'll see
Love me for me
Love me for me

Whoa, here I am
As perfect as i'm ever gonna be
You'll see
Love me for me
Stick around,
I'm not the kinda girl you want to leave
You'll see
Love me for me

    General CommentI absolutely *LOVE* this song.

    I think in this song she's singing to an ex-boyfriend? Or something on the lines of that. And she's telling him that how she is, isn't going to change. And that's as perfect as she's ever going to be.. Hinting the Lyrics:
    **Here I am,
    As perfect as I'm ever gonna be**

    In a way she hates this guy? And yet she wants him still..

    **Shut up, Come back
    No, I didn't really mean to say that.
    I'm mixed up, so what
    Yeah you want me so you're messed up too
    I love you, I hate you
    If you only knew what I've been through**

    ^^Those lyrics show how she just wants to get her point through but doesn't want him to hate her for what she has to say?

    I'm not really sure if that's what this song means, but that's how I see it...

    General CommentYeah, that makes sense too but I thought it was about a guy being interested in her and she's just saying that it's not easy to get to me but don't give up:
    "I'm not the kind of girl you wanna leave
    You'll see,
    Love me for me"
    And she's tell him he has to prove himself in order for her to let her guard down and be with him:
    "I've been waiting all my life to finally find you,
    Just so I can push you away.
    And when you're crawling over broken glass to get to me
    Thats when I'll let you stay"

    General Commenti went to her showcase before and she said this song is about josh or something. she said she broke up with him because he wanted her to change and she also said that he's a mean person. haha

    General CommentI wouldn't want to date ashlee, she always writes about her ex-loves...

    I hate Ashlee's voice. Plain and simple. But I'm not going to call her talentless because if she did in fact write her songs then she's got potential. All the songs on the album are good, nicely written. But her voice is crap.
