My life, in a song!

Have you ever found a song that seems to sum up your entire life? A song that can bring you to tears, no matter how many times you listen to it? A song that seems like it was written just for you? I recently found my song, and can't explain just how much the lyrics move me. A friend of mine introduced me to the Barlowgirls, and told me I MUST listen to their song "I need you to love me". If you aren't familiar with this song, I highly recommend it. This song seriously sums up my life, my struggles, my fears... it's unreal. And the voices of these women are insanely BEAUTIFUL. I'm not sure what made me tear up first, the lyrics or their voices!

Anyway, check out these lyrics.


"I Need You To Love Me"

Why, why are You still here with me
Didn't You see what I've done?
In my shame I want to run and hide myself
But it's here I see the truth
I don't deserve You

But I need You to love me, and I
I won't keep my heart from You this time
And I'll stop this pretending that I can
Somehow deserve what I already have
I need You to love me

I, I have wasted so much time
Pushing You away from me
I just never saw how You could cherish me
'Cause You're a God who has all things
And still You want me

Your love makes me forget what I have been
Your love makes me see who I really am
Your love makes me forget what I have been

What do ya think? Anybody else have a song that sums up their life? I'd love to hear it!
