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

won’t keep my heart from You, this time

And I’ll stop my 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 who I have been

Your love makes me see who I really am

Your love makes me forget who I have been —

(Barlow Girl)

My art flows from the patterns & paths of my lived experience which ⏤ like yours ⏤ are at once deeply personal and entirely universal.
