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?"

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

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...

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
What love really means

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"

Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
And it said,
"I know you've murdered and I know you've lied
And I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you'll listen I'll, I'll tell you that I..."

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

    I love this song. I think of it alot working in Korah. There are so many people who have not been shown what love really means.

    The first time heard of this song. I felt they were singing of me. I really don't know what love is. But i think god is working on showing me what it is.

    Hearing this song made me think of what love I have. God showed me the way and I love Him and my family for that. God and my family made me think real hard-realy realy hard I am so thankful for my family and God. I am glad I am a believer so. Hope yall go to the winter jam.

    My ex used this song to attract women to feel sorry for him..Who would love me for me..Much rather have a man that has happy songs! Sort of ruined the meaning..

    Love never fails. Loving a person unconditionally, no matter who and what she is. Regardles of da mistakes she'd done.. U'r willing to die 4 her, willing to sacrifice.. And wling to endure pains and hartaches.. Just like god, yes, we'r not him, bt if we truly inlove, then we'r trying 2 imitate wat he did.. Just cmple as dat. Loving without any other risun, because god loves us 1st...
