I Need You to Love Me

Album: Another Journal Entry (2005)
  • BarlowGirl are a Christian pop/rock group comprising three sisters, Alyssa, Becca and Lauren Barlow. Alyssa sings the lead vocals on this song.
  • The inspiration for this song about God's love was explained in the liner notes for Wow Hits 2008: "Sometimes it is so hard to accept God's unacceptable love when we realize all we have done. 'I Need You to Love Me' was written during a prayer time when I finally stopped running from God in my brokenness and decided to let God love me. I realized that His love was meant to change us: we were never meant to change ourselves."
  • The song was the most played song of 2006 on the Radio and Records Christian Hit Radio chart, holding onto the #1 spot for a record-breaking 13 consecutive weeks.
  • The song's promo was the first one made by the girls for release on mainstream radio and music video television. The trio were voted the January 2006 winner in Yahoo's "Who's Next?" competition for emerging artists, after viewers were shown the clip.
