Welcome to my website. I mostly talk about books and writing, but you never know what else I might chat about. I'm glad you're here!

"Love Me Like You Mean It" by Kelsea Ballerini

This song is so new that there isn't an official video out yet, but here's an acoustic version of the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOehoGxbpAw

Why do I like this song?

Well.  I think back to the end of college, when I was chasing after guys who didn't see me in the same light that I saw them in.  Guys who couldn't have cared less about my life, to be honest.  I think about them, about that time in my life, and this song makes complete sense to me.

If you're gonna hold me, hold me like I'm leaving

If you're gonna kiss me, kiss me like you need it

Baby, if you're not your best, get to leaving

If you're gonna love me, love me like you mean it

If you're gonna talk the talk, you better walk it

If you wanna keep me, keep me like you lost it

If you're gonna say it, make me believe it

If you're gonna love me, love me like you mean it

For every girl who has put up with shit from a guy; for every girl who has waited around for him to figure it out; for every girl who has chased when it should have been him chasing her--this song is for you.

And that's why I love it.  Because, at some point, a girl has to understand what she is worth.  And, trust me, you're all worth more than the crap that guys who aren't actually into you are feeding you.

Trust me.
