Give me love like her, 'cause lately I've been waking up alone, Paint
Splattered teardrops on my shirt, Told you I'd let them go, And that I'll
Fight my corner, Maybe tonight I'll call ya, after my blood turns into
Alcohol
, No I just wanna hold ya.

Give a little time to me, or burn this out, We'll play hide and seek to
Turn this around, And all I want is the taste that your lips allow, My, my,
My, my, oh give me love, my, my, my, my, oh give me love, My, my, my, my,
Oh give me love, my, my, my, my, oh give me love, My, my, my, my, oh give
Me love.

Give me love like never before, 'cause lately I've been craving more, And
It's been a while but I still feel the same
, Maybe I should let you go, You
Know I'll fight my corner, And that tonight I'll call ya, After my blood is
Drowning in alcohol
, No I just wanna hold ya.

Give a little time to me, or burn this out, We'll play hide and seek to
Turn this around, And all I want is the taste that your lips allow, my, my,
My, my, Oh give me love, give a little time to me, or burn this out, We'll
Play hide and seek to turn this around, And all I want is the taste that
Your lips allow, My, my, my, my, oh give me love, my, my, my, my, oh give
Me love, my, my, my, my, oh give me love, my, my, my, my, oh give me love,
My my, my, my, oh give me love.

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover, M-my my, m-my my, m-my my,
Give me love, lover, M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover, M-my
My, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover.

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover, M-my my, m-my my, m-my my,
Give me love, lover, M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover, M-my
My, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (Love me, love me, love me).

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love), M-my my,
M-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love), M-my my, m-my my,
M-my my, give me love, lover (give me love, love me), M-my my, m-my my,
M-my my, give me love, lover (give me love).

My, my, my, my, Oh give me love, My, my, my, my, Oh give me love, My, my,
My, my, Oh give me love, My, my, my, my, Oh give me love

    This song is about someone who made him feel great. He wants to fight for the relationship but it's just not working out. He wants to tell her how he feels but he can only do that when he's drunk. This song fits me perfectly. 7 month relationship with someone and then suddenly he decided he didn't want it and completely ignores the fact that I love him. Dunno what to do anymore:/

    I think its someone he lost, he didn't realize how much love she gave him until she was gone and now he misses it. Even though he misses her he needs time to figure out thing but at the same time still wants her. The only way he prevent himself from moving on is when he is drunk, signifying the loss of control and spulring out the truth and giving in.

    Song about really being in love with someone, however they don't feel the same - or they don't seem to be showing the same effort/feeling back to you. "give me love like hers" - referring to an ex, or previous partner. "give a little time to me or burn this out" - like an ultimatum - give me some of your time or stop leading me on/sending me mixed signals
    "we'll play hide and seek to turn this around" - hide and seek is a game about being lost and found. He wants to be found by her and only her. "blood is drowning in alcohol" he is drinking himself to drown his sorrows.

    I think its about someone that he just can't talk to. Even though all he does is think about her and wish she would talk to him. He has tried to talk to her, but things don't feel right. Then, when he gets drunk, he feels confident enough to talk to her and they have the most special time and they will never forget it. But then when they are sober they try and talk but it just wont work, and he doesn't know what to do.

    Thius song means everything to me, I love it so much, it makes me cry because it brings back all the memories in my life, it makes me think about ow good I could make my life. I don't know what I'd do without listening to this song everyday, it gets me along easier. It makes me think to myself" dont ever give up on love, one day you'll find someone who will give you love that is real. " this song means a lot.
