"Lovefool" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
Dear, I fear we're facing a problem
You love me no longer, I know
And maybe there is nothing
That I can do to make you do
Mama tells me I shouldn't bother
That I ought to stick to another man
A man that surely deserves me
But I think you do!

So I cry, I pray and I beg

Love me love me
Say that you love me
Fool me fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
Love me love me
Say that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
I can't care 'bout anything but you

Lately I have desperately pondered,
Spent my nights awake and I wonder
What I could have done in another way
To make you stay
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don't care if you really care
As long as you don't go

So I cry, I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Fool me, fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me, love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me
So I cry, and I pray for you to
Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me
I can't care 'bout anything but you

Anything but you

Love me, love me (Say that you love me)
Fool me, fool me (Go on and fool me)
Love me, love me (I know that you need me)
I can't care 'bout anything but you

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who is in love with a guy who no longer loves her. Sometimes when someone is over you, you'd rather have them lie to you and tell you that they still want you than hear the truth. It doesn't solve the problem, but it helps the pain go away. She sounds like she blames herself for their breakup and just wants to stay in this false reality.

    General CommentThis song definatly relates to me. I never actually listened to the words. and ive known this song for a while. all i knew was
    Love me,love me
    say that you love me
    Fool me fool me
    go on and fool me

    haha well im definatly feeling it right now. my boyfriend broke up with me 2 weeks ago and im always wondering why? and what did i do and if theres a way he can come back to me i will definatly try. and it hurts to know he doesnt care at all. At the same time, my friends and family are telling me the same thing.. "You're such a pretty girl you cant get someone better!" Or "Theres more fish in the sea!"
    I just don't listen to them because i know for a fact i was so in love and he was too. like he said "things change" i dont know why or how? guys r so weird. He never told me why he only said "I just cant do this" thats all i got out of him so yeah. now im stuck. like this girl. These are some great lyrics. And now this song is going to be in my head for a longggg time. BUt w.e Its a great song.
    Oh and this song also happens to be my screen name! =D

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is pretty obvious,
    I think it's about a relationship where the girl really loves the guy and can't live without him, but she's noticing that he really doesn't care about her and so she calls herself a "love fool" since she can't let him go even though she knows that's the right thing to do.

    General CommentThere was a kid in my fourth hour class that was singing it today and it got stuck in everyone's head and no one knew how the rest of the song went after "love me love me, say that you'll love me" and I've heard it thousands of times and still didn't know... so now, seven hours later, i finally know how the rest of the song goes...

    General CommentIt's about loving someone and them not loving you as much as you love them. kinda when a relationship fizzles out, but its a one way thing.

    General Commenti think this song was in the newer romeo and juliet movie, wasn't it? the lyrics definitely fit, but the tone is a bit too cheerful for that, imo.

    General CommentHe's broken up with her, and she's begging him not to. she's in denial, saying she doesn't care if he doesn't care for her anymore, if he doesn't love her, she just wants him, whether he cares or not. Definitely about being in denial and not being able to face up to a break up...
