"I Need You To Love Me" as written by and Rebecca Elizabeth Marie/barlow Barlow....
Why, why are you still with me?
Didn't you see what I've done?
In my shame I want to run and hide myself
But it's here I see the truth
I don't deserve you

But I need you to love me, and I
I won't keep my heart from you this time
So I'll stop this pretending that I can
Somehow deserve what I already have
I need you to love me

I, I have wasted so much time
Pushing you away from me
I just never saw how much you could cherish me
Cuz you're a God who has all things
And still you want me

But I need you to love me, and I
I won't keep my heart from you this time
So I'll stop this pretending that I can
Somehow deserve what I already have
I need you to love me

Your love makes me forget what I have been
Your love makes me see who I really am
Your love makes me forget what I have been

But I need you to love me, and I
I won't keep my heart from you this time
So I'll stop this pretending that I can
Somehow deserve what I already have
I need you to love me

    General CommentHow are there no comments on this song? This song is so pretty. Anyway, I think that there's this girl who's treated her boyfriend like crap, and she feels bad about it after doing it, even though he's stayed with her the whole time.

    General CommentThis song is actually about her relationship with God. She wants God to love her and is ashamed of what she has done in her life.

    General Commentthis is one of "those songs" the kind that come from christian bands but dont have a clear defination as to whom the "you" actually is. thats one of the things i love about this song. it relates to everyone... no matter religious background. everyone has been at that place where they just want to say.."i need you to love me" to anyone who will hear it.

    General Commentnickt111, songs are open to interpretation.
    Don't just run around saying this is this, and that is that.
    It leaves no space for the non Christians to enjoy this music, as Leslie184 explained.
    I listen to this and think of my boyfriend, I know a close friend of mine does think about Christ when she listens, yet we both agree that its a terrific song, even though we have different personal meanings.

    Lovely song though.

    General CommentThis song was wrote in the intention of been about God!! But that's the beauty of lyrics & poems, everybody interupts them different!! I think about God when I hear it I must admitt!!
    She is wondering how is she worthy of such a powerful love!! She needs him to love her & she knows she has to stop pretending that she doesn't deserve it because she does!!

    General CommentAt a concert, Alyssa told how she wanted to be on Broadway and she got some kind of disease where she wasn't expected to walk ever again. She was angry with God. She thought God had taken away her dreams. Then she said she had this thought that God still loved her, wanted her. She wrote this to say how amazing God is that He will take us, through our anger and pain. She said that if she never walked again, she would be perfectly content just laying in bed, praising and worshiping God.

    Just to shed some light here. I love this song and have admiration for all 3 girls.
