I just want to love her

Story Behind The Song

I saw a young girl in La Guardia. She looked terribly sad, lonely, and worn by the world. My heart went out to her. She needed someone to care. Gave her a short guitar lesson. Hope she's doing well.

Lyrics

She took everything I had and I knew she would
The day I met her
Saw the anger mixed with sadness and it wasn't good
But I still loved her
She'd been hardened by the years of cold and bitter rain
She'll take everything I have, but her love is worth the pain

I just want to love her, I just want to heal her, I just want to free her, and show how much I need her.
She needs a love unfettered, that asks for nothing in return, and I just want to love her.

She's seen the darkest side of life since she was four, and knows no peace of mind
Her parents had some troubles and they kept the score, and she was left behind.
So this ain't some form of rescue I've embarked upon
I just want to be the man that she knows she can depend on.

I just want to love her, I just want to hold her, I just want to be there, so she can cry on my shoulder.
She needs a trust unspoken, to mend a heart that's broken, and I just want to love her.

She walked a hundred miles through deserts of resentment
I will take her from that valley to a meadow of contentment

She's been hard as steel but deep inside she's crying, with no one to lean on
She needs a gentle hand to help her in the storms of night, she needs a place to dream from.
Neglected she's been tortured by burning rage, I will reach into her life and I will help her turn the page.

I just want to love her, I just want to heal her, I just want to tell her, just how much I need her.
She needs a love unfettered, that asks for nothing in return, and I just want to love her.
I just want to love her, I just want to hold her, I just want to heal her, I have a way to free her.
She needs a trust unspoken, to mend a heart that's broken, and I just want to love her.
