"Love Me" as written by Katy Perry, Max Martin, Christian Karlsson, Vincent Fred Pontare and Magnus Lidehall....
I lost myself in fear of losing you
I wish I didn't do, but I did
I lost my own, my own identity
Forgot that you picked me, for me

But now, I don't negotiate with insecurities
They always seem to get the best of me
I found I had to love myself, the way I want you to

Love me, no more second guessing
No, there’s no more questioning
I’ll be the one defining who I'm gonna be
No concealing feelings, or changing seasonally
I’m gonna love myself, the way I want you to love me

Sometimes I wish my skin was a costume
That I could just unzip, and strip
But who I am is who I'm meant to be
And it's who you are in love, in love with
So now, I don't negotiate with insecurities
You're gonna have to take a back seat
I know I have to love myself, the way I want you to

Love me, no more second guessing
No, there’s no more questioning
I’ll be the one defining who I'm gonna be
No concealing feelings, or changing seasonally
I’m gonna love myself, the way I want you to love me

No more standing in my own way
Let's get deeper, let's get closer
No more standing in my own way
(I want you to love me)
No more standing in my own way
Let's get deeper, let's get closer
No more standing in my own way
(I want you to love me)

No more second guessing
No, there’s no more questioning
I’ll be the one defining who I'm gonna be
No concealing my feelings, or changing seasonally
I’m gonna love myself, the way I want you to love me

No more second guessing
No, there’s no more questioning
I’ll be the one defining who I'm gonna be
No concealing feelings, or changing seasonally
I’m gonna love myself, the way I want you to love me

    General CommentI think this song is about learning to love yourself and coming to terms with your own flaws and insecurities so that you can love someone else, and find someone who will treat you well. The speaker has had problems with losing her own identity and it seems like she let what the other person/people said influence her way of thinking about herself and things in general and made her hide her true feelings rather than just be open and vulnerable. So now she's learning to be completely herself, realize and accept her insecurities, and "love herself the way I want you to love me."

    General CommentOkay so this song is my favourite song of all time. This song very much seems to be based around sexuality. I am 100% sure it is. It's a gorgeous song. I love it so much.
