"Love's Almighty" as written by Fabrice Regis Robert Dumont, Stephan Armin Haeri, Christophe Hetier and Angela Mccluskey....
I just held on and hoped you'd find
The nowhere else you'd find my kind
Dear John, oh yes I did all I could
To make it be like the wallflower who never could
And I admit I wasn't pure, dear John
When I try so hard to make you sure
Life without you is not a cure
Dear John

And my unsung hero lies beneath
The rooftops made of gold
He's telling me I should jump
He'll be there when I fall
So I step back, pretend I'm shocked
Really I always knew
This would happen to me and you, dear John
I just held on and hoped you'd find
The nowhere else you'd find my kind
Dear John
Love's almighty

    General Comment'I just held on and hoped you'd find that nowhere else you'd find my kind' - I think that this relates to her being in love with a man who she was terrified of losing to someone else. She had insecurities, but she hoped that he'd see something in her that would glow brighter than what everyone else had.

    'I did all I could to make it be like the wallflower who never could' - I'm not really sure on this, but I always pictured it as her making an extra effort to be pretty and noticed around him, though always felt as though her efforts failed - maybe his eyes would get drawn to someone else instead.

    'I admit I wasn't pure, when I tried so hard to make you see, life without you is not a cure.' - She told her lover that him going away wouldn't make her happy. The fact that she wasn't pure about it suggests that she may have been trying to make him feel guilty, just so that he wouldn't leave her.

    'My unsung hero lies beneath the rooftops made of gold. He's telling me I should jump, he'll be there when I fall' - This is kinda ambigious. It could be another man who has been interested in her for a while, and really cares about her. He wants her to 'jump' - or get away from her current relationship, and when she does, he'll be there for her.

    'So I step back, pretend I'm shocked, but really I always knew that this would happen to me and you.' - She's feigning disbelief that her lover doesn't care about her or want her as much as she wished. She knew it all along, but didn't want to uncover it, but here's her 'unsung hero' saying it to her clearly, and giving her the option of escape. I dunno, though. I've only speculated a little on the second verse.

    Song MeaningMaybe I'm manipulating the song meaning to fit my own life at the moment, but this literally sounds like something I would attempt to write at a time like this- if I had the talent.

    I think it's about the end of a relationship, they broke up, and she's devastated. She keeps "holding on" hoping he doesn't move on, find anyone else that could replace her. She tried everything she could to salvage the relationship, but it was in vain. She loved him dearly, and he left her all alone.

    Although I'll admit I'm confused about these lines:
    "And I admit I wasn’t pure, dear John
    When I try so hard to make you sure
    Life without you is not a cure"

    At first I thought it could be that perhaps he can't accept her imperfections? He has high expectations for her maybe? It could be the last two lines are her trying to illustrate to him how deeply she cares about him, how she couldn't live without him, and maybe he won't believe her.
    I kind of doubt this though, I'm not a very proficient song analyzer.

    "And my unsung hero lies beneath
    The rooftops made of gold
    He’s telling me I should jump
    He’ll be there when I fall"

    Okay, I'm pretty confident about this part. At least most of it. He's telling her to jump, that he'll be there to catch her. I think this is an allusion of falling in love. He tells her to trust him, that he won't hurt her. It really is a risk, loving someone. You're completely vulnerable and they can tear you apart- so easily, without a second thought. It's like placing all of your happiness in someone else's (perhaps incapable) hands.


    "So I step back, pretend I’m shocked
    Really I always knew
    This would happen to me and you, dear John"

    I think she's referring to her reaction after her and "John" fall apart. She has trust issues, and saw it coming once he got too close to her. This part gets to me the most in the song, she already knew he would let her down eventually.

    I just held on and hoped you’d find
    The nowhere else you’d find my kind
    Dear John
    Love’s almighty

    Maybe the "love's almighty" line refers to the immense impact love has on your life. It can make it or break it.
