"Love For Me" as written by Adam S. Gardner, Ryan Miller and Brian A. Rosenworcel....
I know there is a place
A place where I belong
Not be mistreated or undone
And if I find that place
I'll keep my mouth shut
'Cause I won't be there alone

And if you're standing there
With me
I'll swear it's a lie, and I'll still believe it

'Cause I came
And I spoke
And you ran
Didn't even wait to hear the words
Or see the look in my eyes
'Cause I bled
And you watched
And I cried myself to sleep
Came to wipe my tears away but you
Couldn't look in my eyes again
Because of the love for me

Well, I understand the time
It passes so slowly
And I can hear its laughter
But there will come a time
When you will ask me
And I will join you then

And if you're standing there
With me
I'll swear it's a lie, and I'll still believe it

'Cause I came
And I spoke
And you ran
Didn't even wait to hear the words
Or see the look in my eyes
'Cause I bled
And you watched
And I cried myself to sleep
Came to wipe my tears away but you
Couldn't look in my eyes again
Because of the love for me
Because of the love for me
Because of the love for me
Because of the love for me
Because of the love for me
Because of the love for me

    General CommentIt sounds like there are two friends who suffer from depression. They tried to help each other but maybe one friend committed suicide. Then it seems that the second friends thinks of joining the first.

    General CommentThis is just my interpretation, and it's a fairly superficial reading, so it could be wrong, but...

    He's depressed, and trying to find a niche in life where people won't treat him badly. More specifically he's trying to find a place with someone who loves him, hence "I won't be there alone".

    He found it before, but didn't recognize it, and tried to kill himself. (Cause I bled. And you watched.)
    And when he tried to explain, he found out the person who loves him is too scared to be close to him now.
    But he knows that person will come back eventually, "because of the love for me."

    I can probably make this more sensible in the morning.

    General CommentI think he's talking about someone who will hurt you and tell you they love you at the same time. They claim they're rejecting you, trying to change you, criticizing you because they're looking out for your best interest. Or breaking up with you while claiming to love you. This song has a taste of rebellion but also resignation, as if to say I'll just keep my mouth shut and conform to your ideal and then you'll have no excuses because I gave you what you asked. But he knows that the person can't look in his eyes because they're lying about what is making them so unhappy and about what they really want. He wants to believe the lies and ignore the fact that the person is going to make him change himself, call him to a new place, and leave him standing there alone.
