"If You Want Me" as written by and Marketa Irglova....
Are you really here
Or am I dreaming
I can't tell dreams from truth
For it's been so long
Since I have seen you
I can hardly remember your face anymore
When I get really lonely
And the distance calls its only silence
I think of you smiling
With pride in your eyes
A lover that sighs

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

Are you really sure
That you believe me
When others say I lie
I wonder if you could
Ever despise me
You know I really try
To be a better one to satisfy you
For you're everything to me
And I do what you ask me
If you let me be free

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

    General CommentWhen I hear this song I feel like it is a lullaby or ode to a past lover that is still on your mind....Or even an unspoken conversation an unrequited lover is having in their mind with the other person...Like the verse is what they say to the lover and the chorus is what they want the lover responds ...

    When I get really lonely
    and the distance causes our silence
    I think of you smiling
    with pride in your eyes

    basically she's telling the person she misses them and she can see them sigh and hears them say

    "if you want me satisfy me"

    Maybe because when they were together she didn't know how...and now she wants to so she says back

    Are you really sure
    that you’d believe me
    when others say I lie
    I wonder if you could
    ever despise me
    when you know I really try
    to be a better one
    to satisfy you
    for your everything to me
    and I’ll do
    what you ask me
    if you’ll let me be
    free

    and again the lover says to them if you really want me then come, come back and satisfy me....or atleast that is what she hopes they'll say..

    I feel like everyone can relate to this...knowing you messed up and knowing you want to be with the person because you realize your mistake and your only wish is that they'll let you back in!

    General CommentTo me, and perhaps it's because I'm in this situation, I think this song is sung from the perspective of someone who has an ambiguous relationship with them. They really care about them and obviously the other person cares about them but there's nothing definite and the person singing just wants to be satisfied since they're doing all they can to make things work.

    General Commentreally...calming and sad at the same time. for some reason her accent when she sings makes it seem like she's crying; that isn't a criticism, it's just how i'm perceiving the song. the beginning sounds so "old", for lack of a better word, and then it just kind of reaches across distance and time. a weird description, but this song sounds kind of like that to me.

    General CommentI love how it's staged in the movie.
    So simple, yet so magical.
    The song it self is amazing.
    Sad and heartbreaking.
    I love it!

    My InterpretationTo me, this is a lover in a long-distance relationship asking the other for an open relationship as she is not satisfied. She is in desperate need for intimacy she cannot have and even her memories of the intimacy they have/had is fading.
