Hopeful Desires When You “Love Me Like You Do”


Published by on May 25, 2015

From the movie Fifty shades of Grey who first Introduced BDSM on the limelight comes Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding. Written by Swedish singer Tove Lo, Savan Kotecha and Ilya Salmanzadeh and produced by Taylor Swift and Ali Payami. This song is the fastest selling single which debuted at number one on the first week with 172,000 copies sold in the UK.

When I first heard the song I found out how passionately driven it is with hopeful desires. But, as I listened to it a couple of times the lyrics don’t highlight a one sided love affair,  just as people thought it is. There are two sides to this song, it tells a story of a man struggling to show how intense and fired up his emotions are until he finally realized how incredibly unfounded he is but hesitates to show how he feels because of the disbelief that he can be loved despite his imperfections.

The other side of the story showcases a passionately loved woman who is confused of the relationship she is in, how she slowly embraces his mans’ flaws making his mediocre life perfectly romanticized. What she doesn’t understand is the shift of emotions from warm to cold and her submission being his strength, making her wanting something she knows he cannot give.

When you listen to the Chorus you will see how she is trying to break or surpass a wall he has built for her and the others before her as a way to love him fully which makes her want to change him.
