Love Me  Anyway

You blocking my escape 

Standing firm in the doorway 

Tearful faces against my rage

She’s too young to know that day

Still she knows there’s a decision

I dropped my bags and stayed

 

Love me anyway,  love me anyway

Love me anyway 

 

They learn from hath they see

I hope they don’t remember

Don’t remember

Pulling my hair and crying

Hardly recognizing me

Longing to be free

 

Love me anyway,  love me anyway

Love me anyway 

 

Missing you while craving space but needing your embrace

I’ve never been so low, I’ve never been so low

I need you to see me, to hold me, to love me anyway

I’ve  never felt more alone, and I wonder if you know 

 

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what to do

Who am I and  who are you? 

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what to do

Who am I and who are you? 

 

Wounds, mistakes, limits you’ve reached

Recognize who’s looking back

Looking back at me 

Truce; to see and to be seen

Choosing to forgive with 

No contingencies 

 

Come down now, softened hearts reach out

 

Love me anyway,  love me anyway

Love me anyway 

Love me anyway,  love me anyway

Love me anyway

 Love me anyway,  love me anyway

Love me anyway
