"Love Me" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins and David Jay....
He cries in the corner where nobody sees
He's the kid with the story no one would believe
He prays every night "dear God won't you please
Could you send someone here who will love me"

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me
'Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She's the woman whose husband has run away
She'll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner then he would have stayed

And she says who will love me for me
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me
'Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means

He's waiting to die as he sits all alone
He's a man in a cell who regrets what he's done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
Oh lord forgive me I want to go home

Then he heard a voice
Somewhere deep inside
And it said I know you've murdered and I know you've lied
And I have watched you suffer all of your life

And now that you'll listen I'll tell you that I

I will love you for you, not for what you have done or what you will become.
I will love you for you
I will give you the love, the love that you never knew

Love you for you not for what you have done or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love, the love that you never knew

    General CommentAn awesome song about God's unwavering love for us even in the midst of our sins and imperfections.

    While we keep searching for love (some times our entire lives), we often times forget it was already there with God's eternal, everlasting love.

    Song MeaningOne of my friends introduced me to this song about a month ago, when i first heard it i broke down in tears.

    The first part is self explainitory it's about a child that no one believes in and he gives up hope, because he doesn't think he will find someone to love him for him hence the songs name "Love me".

    The second part is about a woman that thinks she doesn't look good enough and that is what drove away her husband or boyfriend, and she's looking to find to someone to accept her for who she is not what others want her to be.

    The last part is about a man who's been in prison all his life for murder and is seeking forgiveness before he dies. He finds this forgiveness in a voice he hears that tells him they accept him for who he is and what he wants to be accepted for rather than not to be accepted at all.
