Verse 1
   Am                        F
He cries in the corner where nobody sees,
         C                    G
he's the kid with the story no one would believe.
   Am                       F
He prays every night, "Dear God won't you please,
           C                         G/////|//////|
could you send someone here who will love me?"
Chorus
         C            G
Who will love me for me?
         Am                      F
Not for what I have done or what I will become.
         C           G
Who will love me for me?
        Am                       F                          (intro. again)
'Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means.

Verse 2
     Am                   F
Her office is shrinking a little each day,
          C                       G
she's the woman whose husband has run away.
        Am                 F
She'll go to the gym after working today,
         C                    G/////|//////|
Maybe if she was thinner then he would've stayed. And she says. . .
Chorus
         C            G
Who will love me for me?
         Am                      F
Not for what I have done or what I will become.
         C           G
Who will love me for me?
        Am                       F                          (intro. again)
'Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means.
Verse 3
     Am                   F
He's waiting to die as he sits all alone,
       C                  G
he's a man in a cell who regrets what he's done.
   Am                    F
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul,
    C                   G/////|//////|
"Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home."
Bridge
        Am                        F
Then he heard a voice, somewhere deep inside
             C                           G
and it said, "I know you've murdered and I know you've lied
Am                        F
I have watched you suffer all of your life
C                           G/////|//////|
and now that you'll listen, I'll tell you that I. . .
Chorus 2
       C              G
I will love you for you.
          Am                       F
Not for what you have done or what you will become
       C            G
I will love you for you
       Am                     F
I will give you the love, the love that you never knew
Chorus 2 – 2 times then to intro
