What Love Really Means

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.

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...

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.
