This is actually a good question? Why did I picked this song?
Besides the fact that i just love the hushed mid-tempo of the song with delicate guitar lines over a warm keyboard backdrop - I have absolutely no idea why i picked this song otherwise.
I decided to go read more about the song just so i can at least give you guys something to read and a found a few interesting stuff about this song.
Faith Hill made a comeback 2011 with "Give In To Me" from the soundtrack of the movie, Country Strong. The reason why she come out of hiding for this project was the fact that husband, Tim McGraw, was one of the stars in the film.
Although Faith Hill is the original artist for this song, Leighton Meester and Garrett Hedlund did this as a duo in Country Strong.
Nowhere I could find a direct meaning or explanation of the story behind the song, but then I found this one comment that someone made towards the lyrics of the song that actually made me think.
The "writer" explains that by reading the words you get the idea that the couple hasn't solidified their relationship yet.
In a way you can say that the overall meaning is obsession. I personally don't think "Give In To Me" is a love song. For me it's more about lust.
"I'm gonna start a fire.
You're gonna feel the heat.
I'm gonna burn for you,
You're gonna melt for me."
This second verse shows me that he is going to start something that she's won't be able to resist. He is not going to stop until she gives up and give in to him.
"My heart is set on you.
I don't want no one else.
And if you don't want me,
I guess I'll be all by myself."
By the fourth verse you realize that the girl now actually feels something for the guy after giving in. The way i see it is that she is not sure if he wants her in a relationship-kind-of-way or just in a romantic-kind-of-way. (if you know what I mean)
After this explanations I still don't know why I choose this song, but I must say - again it is something all can relate to. Not just in relationships - but in everyday life. We all have been in a situation where we were obsessed with something or someone & we all have been unsure of something or someone.
No matter what the situation, remember to stay strong and don't give in to temptation.
