"I Love You" as written by Angel Haze, Yoann Lemoine and Ambroise Edwin Antoine Willaume....
Where the light shivers offshore
Through the tides of oceans
We are shining in the rising sun

As we are floating in the blue
I am softly watching you
Oh boy your eyes betray what burns inside you

Whatever I feel for you
You only seem to care about you
Is there any chance you could see me too?
'Cause I love you
Is there anything I could do
Just to get some attention from you?
In the waves I've lost every trace of you
Where are you?

After all I drifted ashore
Through the streams of oceans
Whispers wasted in the sand

As we were dancing in the blue
I was synchronized with you
But now the sound of love is out of tune

Whatever I feel for you
You only seem to care about you
Is there any chance you could see me too?
'Cause I love you
Is there anything I could do
Just to get some attention from you
In the waves I've lost every trace of you
Where are you?

Whatever I feel for you
You only seem to care about you
Is there any chance you could see me too?
'Cause I love you
Is there anything I could do
Just to get some attention from you
In the waves I've lost every trace of you
Oh where are you?

    My InterpretationWhatever I feel for you
    You only seem to care about you

    This just about sums it up. The singer is in love and their loved one isn't. The singer wants attention from the other person, but they're too self involved to care or just don't want to get attached.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a weird kind of unrequited love. One person loves another and the one they love has feelings for them back, but refuse to act on them.

    Ex: " As we are floating in the blue
    I am softly watching you
    Oh boy your eyes betray what burns inside you"

    The one they love stay focused on themselves and try to act like they don't notice the other person's feelings while the one who loves them is longing to be noticed back by that person.

    Ex: "Whatever I feel for you
    You only seem to care about you
    Is there any chance you could see me too?
    'Cause I love you
    Is there anything I could do
    Just to get some attention from you"

    Or the person they love had felt something for them in the beginning, but got swept away by "the waves" (popular crowd maybe) and started to lose feelings for the person that loves them.

    Ex: Goes from "Oh boy your eyes betray what burns inside of you" to "As we were dancing in the blue, I was synchronized with you, but now the sound of love is out of tune".

    The lines, "In the waves I've lost every trace of you
    Where are you?" seem to show how the one they love has maybe changed from the person they fell in love with because their running with a new crowd (the waves) and how they don't recognize them anymore. Or it could just be another example of how self-absorbed the person they love is.

    My InterpretationI like the last thought, that "he" is trying to get god or God to notice him, but it hit me that maybe it's God telling the man how much he loves him, but the man, or "we" or "mankind" is too self absorbed to recognize it?

    General CommentI'd always thought that it was to do with a relationship as you said, but when i saw the video I assumed it was about losing religion and trying to get proof of a god, and finding god's love etc.
    But now that you mention it, I do also like the idea that it might be from god's perspective to human kind. Interesting. The video does still confuse me too a little, the bit near the end with the whales and the priest(?)'s hands turning to rock.

    General CommentPerhaps it's about someone neglecting their inner self and who they really are or want to be? Think of it as 2 sides of the same person with the song being sung by that inside person.

    Song MeaningThis is obviously about surfing.

    You want the wave so bad, and you know him well. But suddenly he doesn't want to give you the attention you need from him anymore. He's only thinking of himself right now, you wonder if there's anything you can do. But he already left you...

    Read them again.
    This is about surfing.

    My Opinionim not sure but i do know that if you watch the music video they are in a church, and because of that i think this relationship every one is talking about might be god, i dont know im not sure.

    but when he says "is there anything i could do just to get some attention from you. in these waves ive lost every trace of you, where are you?" i think that the man is confused or something cuz he cant find god.

    and then at "to get some attention from you" in the music video it points to a guy in church who's holding a cross in his hands. cuz i guess he's trying to get gods attention. i honestly dont know.

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song, I think more along the lines of friendship. I don't want to sound cliche, (I love this song), but I more envision seeing someone lose their friend to depression.

    Whatever I see in you
    You only seem to care about you
    Is there any chance that you can see me too?
    Cause I love you.

    Just think about it, (but I could be waaaayyyy out of the park).
