Say You Love Me Lyrics

Have mercy, baby on a poor girl like me,
You know I’m falling, falling, falling at your feet,
I’m tingling right from my head to my toes,
So help me, help me, help me make the feeling go.

’cause when the loving starts, and the lights go...

    My interpretation is that he loves her, he just hasnt said it yet...and she sometimes deals in absolutes even though she shouldn't. If he loves her he should just say it though because all it's doimg is confusing this poor girl and distracting her from giving them the life they dreamed of together....because its obvious she only cares for and loves him! Hes her superhero.

    I've known this song for many, many years since I was a little girl. I had known it for years before I was aware of the people who wrote and sang it so, when I was younger, it sounded like a song of happiness to me, a woman singing about her relationship with the man she loves('Have mercy baby, on a poor girl like me, you know I'm falling, falling, falling at your feet. I'm tingling right from my head to my toes so help me make the feeling grow'

    When I got a bit older and became aware of Fleetwood Mac I started listening a bit closer to the lyrics in all their songs. It was then, that this song started to sound like a pleading for acceptance ('Have pity baby, just when I thought it was over' and 'I'm begging you for a little sympathy, if you use me again it will be the end of me')

    There's also the thrill of love in there to ('coz when the loving starts and the lights go down and there's not another living soul around, you woo me until the sun comes up and you say that you love me')

    All in all, I love any song sung by Christing McVie. Love her voice and her ability to put her soul into her lyrics. xx :)

    This song is about the relationship of Christine McVie and John McVie at the time that they were married in the 70s. This song is about the love Christine had for John even though she had felt pain and loneliness along with rejection. Christine has loved John so much that her song tells people that she would do anything for him. They both felt like things were getting complicated and had little time for each other. This is what led to the breakup of Christine and John McVie along with their divorce.
