    I Want You to Love Me Lyrics

    I Want You To Love Me

    [Verse 1]

    I’ve waited many years
    Every print I left upon the track
    Has led me here
    And next year, it’ll be clear
    This was only leading me to that
    And by that time, I hope that


    You love me
    You love me

    [Verse 2]

    I move with the trees in the breeze
    I know that time is elastic
    And I know when I go
    All my particles disband and disperse
    And I’ll be back in the pulse
    And I know none of this will matter in the long run
    But I know a sound is still a sound around no one
    And while I’m in this body
    I want somebody to want
    And I want what I want and I want


    You to love me


    And I know that you do
    In the dark, I know that you do
    And I know that you know that you got
    The potential to pick me up
    And I want you to use it, blast the music
    Bang it, bite it, bruise it
    Whenever you want to begin, begin
    We don’t have to go back to where we’ve been
    I am the woman who wants you to win
    And I’ve been waiting, waiting for


    You to love me
    Ooh, ooh
