Ellie Goulding – Love Me Like You Do lyrics

[Verse 1]
You're the light, you're the night
You're the color of my blood
You're the cure, you're the pain

You're the only thing I wanna touch
Never knew that it could mean so much

So much

[Verse 2]
You're the fear, I don't care
Cause I've never been so high
Follow me to the dark
Let me take you past our satellites

Then You can see the world you brought to life, to life

[Chorus]

So love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Touch me like you do, touch touch touch me like you do
What are you waiting for
?

[Verse 3]

Fading in, fading out
On the edge of paradise
Every inch of your skin is a holy grail I've got to find
Only you can set my heart on fire, on fire


[Pre-Chorus]

Yeah, I'll let you set the pace
Cause I'm not thinking straight
My head spinning around I can't see clear no more
What are you waiting for
?

[Chorus]

Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Touch me like you do, touch touch touch me like you do
What are you waiting for
?

Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Touch me like you do,touch touch touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?

[Pre-Chorus]

I'll let you set the pace
Cause I'm not thinking straight
My head spinning around I can't see clear no more
What are you waiting for
?

[Chorus]

Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Touch me like you do, touch touch touch me like you do
What are you waiting for
?

Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Love me like you do, love love love me like you do
Touch me like you do, touch touch touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?

    I think this song is often taken to be from Ana to Christian, but I seriously believe it is Christians song to Ana. He has never believed himself worthy of love. Until Ana. His past relationships were empty hence the phrase 'never knew it could feel like this'. She is his light in the dark. Losing her is his fear and her love is his cure. She sets the pace in their relationship and he is just trying to work his way through, adapting where needs be to make her happy. She is the only person to touch him and love him completely. She brings him to life and makes him... more.
    Beautiful song about a relationship that needs work and negotiations. And the fact that love can cure. But don't all relationships need that.

    Just because it's a soundtrack for "Fifty Shades of Grey", it doesn't mean that it will automatically be interpreted as a song with sexually/lust-filled vibes. "Love Me Like You Do" is a song for that special person in which someone is willingly submitted herself into. When I said submit, it means she's giving all the controls to her man over her life. It could also be interpret as to how a woman entrusted herself fully to that guy who will be with her for the rest of her life. She's blindly in love that she practically gives up everything just to be with him, just to have him and just to let him take care of her. I like how this song brings out the point of view of a woman when she completely falls in love. It is true that when she already finds that person who will make her world spins, she will be more than willing to sacrifice everything. Because when a woman falls in love, there's no requirement, no rule, no procrastination, for she will let her man handle her, she will let him decide.

    When I first heard this song it really get me into it and I keep replay the song and memorized the lyrics for me its so sensual but the way that girl say "Love me like you do" really wants her man to really love her emotions and lust filled this song!

    I really love the beat and the song itself! So sensual yet very intimidating. The lady wants her man to love her in any way.

    The song is how Christian feels about Ana, its how she makes him feel liberated from the darkness, of the sins that he thinks he has committed, it's about how he is willing to change for her, the feeling that he can be a normal human being in front of someone, or wanting to feel normal. It's also about him wanting to let go of his controlling nature, so that Ana can set the pace in the relationship.

    Ah, this must be the one good part about being a celebrity, specifically a K-POP Idol. When you aren't being attacked by psycho lunatic stalkers who call themselves fans, being worked until you're visibly ill with little time to recover, crying your eyes out while in the fetal position (and apparently dance mode as showcased by EXO's Mama MV :D ), calling out for your mama to tell you why the world sucks, or otherwise beating off depression with a stick because of the aforementioned situations, at least you can look forward to meeting some of the idols that you looked up to when you were an unpaid slave, I mean trainee, right?
