What Love Really Means Song Lyrics


Verse 1

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?”

 

Chorus

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

 

Verse 2

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've stayed                                                                    

And she says...

 

Chorus

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 really means

 

Verse 3

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”

 

Verse 4

Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside                                 

And it said, “I know you've murdered and I know you've lied                 

I have watched you suffer all of your life                                             

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

 

Chorus

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
