JJ Heller – Love Me lyrics

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

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
I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you'll listen, 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

    This song keeps touching me and inspiring me. Everytime I listen to it I get a new message from God. I get chills and goose bumps because it is God speaking through me. I have downloaded it from itunes and just now searech for the lyrics. Its funny because after listening to it for over 30 times now, I just picked up on they lyric of the man who "murdered." I thought the lyric was "I know you Heard and I know you lied." I am working on a screenplay about alcoholism and this song has given me so many ideas for it. I am even planning on using this song in the Soundtrack. Here is me making big plans and leaping with his help! We can do all things with his help! Lost but now found.
    Lots of love and peace to us all!

    I have led a "less than perfect life as a mother and a wife and this song just speaks to me. I kind of put another line in there that says, "who will love me for me, not for what I have done but for what I've become". I have worked hard with the help of jesus to become a new person. Who will look at that instead of what I was. God bless you guys and thanks you.

    My friend did a cover of this song once. She doesn't believe in god, or at least doesn't trust him. Shes only 14, but she's been in and out of abusive relationships. And when she sang this song, I realized how fortunate I really am. I have a God who I believe loves me, great parents. And it just makes me sad to see her suffer with herself, trying to accept who she is because of what she has done. I watch her fall down the deep end every day, and its really heartbreaking. I wish she could forgive herself and accept God. And I know if she did, it would be the difference between broken and whole. This song will always make me think of her.

    This song reminds me if even though you don't feel worthy of love, God does. And He loves us unconditionally for our true self. He loves us for what's in our hearts. I am a 50 year old single mother, never married, never really been loved, and at my age, I know its safe to say I'll probably never find love (between man and woman). But I know my son loves me and God loves me and that's all that matters to me!

    I visit the local prison about 3 times per week to visit my son. It is a minimum security facility, but when I look around my heart breaks. No one, on one should ever be thrown away and forgotten and so many of these men are. Just forgotten. Most never get even one visit. How can they believe a God they can't see will love them if their own family doesn't? We all need to reach out to these people behind bars and show them that people do care and they are worth something to someone - especially God.
