Jo Dee Messina - Because You Love Me Lyrics

I don't know how I survived
In this cold and empty world for all this time
I only know that I'm alive
Because you love me

When I recall what I've been through
There's some things
That I wish I didn't do
Now I do the things I do
Because you love me

And now that you're in my life
I'm so glad I'm alive
'Cause you showed me the way
And I know now how good it can be
Because you love me

And now that you're in my life
Oh, I'm so glad I'm alive
'Cause you showed me the way
And I know now how good it can be
Because you love me

I believe in things unseen
I believe in the message of a dream
And I believe in what you are
Because you love me

With all my heart and all my soul
I'm loving you and I never will let go
And every day I'll let it show
Because you love me
Because you love me
Because you love me

    This was me and my now late husband wedding song he passed away February 13th 2018 one month and 4 days before our one year anniversary. I did not know this song till he played it for me two weeks before we got married. I miss him every day and this song helps me to keep going on because I know he would want me to.

  14. Stanley Lamb

    Thank you Lord .

    Definitely a worship song, use of the dove and her body language.

  24. cynthia lane

    its my god song

  25. r. smile

    I think of my cat.

  26. Amy Wilson

    This song was such a powerful message from my beautiful Mother to me, after finding her and saving her life. She promised me that she would never attempt that again. She was my best friend and although I was so angry with her at the time, I also believed her because I loved her so very much and knew she loved me just as much!!!

    Sometimes, your inner demons take over and you aren’t able to keep promises, even to those you love the most!
    This song was so special to us. When she sang it to me, I truly believed her.
    Unfortunately, her demons won out and 12 years later she lost that battle. Again, I was the one to find her, but this time it was too late.
    That was almost 12 years ago. It was very hard for me to take, especially after she promised me and dedicated this song to me 12 years prior.

    It took a very long time for me to accept so many aspects of the situation. I was angry she didn’t keep her promise. I felt guilty, abandoned and ashamed, like it was my fault! I also blamed so many others.
    Eventually, I finally found forgiveness and understood the many demons that got in her way. Now, as much as I miss her, I’m so happy that she is in a better place and no longer in pain!!
    I love and miss you so very much Mom!!

    Thanks so much Jo Dee Messina 💕

    This song makes me cry everytime I hear it. Tonight I feel alone in this cold and empty world. I have battle depression for 26 long years and wish for the end tonight. I hope Jesus loves me, because he's my last hope. All women in this world that I know have forever turned their backs on me, including my Mother and Sister.

    Andrew Fallon

    Don't ever feel there's no one out there. You just haven't found them yet. Trust me. I felt the way you did for years. My mother, both sisters, my ex-wife. All have ruined my life and betrayed me. But after years I found someone I never expected to find. And 8 years later I could not be happier. Don't look for it. Just keep making the best version of you, you can. And someday she'll walk into your life.

  28. Angie Shockley

    Might be using this song at our wedding. I love her music!

  29. Mark Anthony Arellano

  34. cynthia lane

    This song ......itz my song to my lord king jesus my sweet jesus man

  35. Dee collier

    the old man crying at the beginning always reminds me of my dad when mama passed away they were married almost 35 years and it was the first time I'd ever seen him cry and it made me feel so helpless because I didn't know how to heal the hurt bc I was hurting so bad myself

    Catherine Morris

    Dee collier this comment made me cry


    God Bless You Jo Dee May Jesus Push That Cancer Out Of You In The Name Of Jesus

    Most Fab


  37. fritshits65

  38. Michele Barrett

    Every time I see that little girl, I burst into tears. What a little sweetheart. Maybe someday I won't cry when I see this video.

  39. Michele Barrett

    That little blonde girl is the sweetest thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. jscountrygirl85

    Always loved this song! Brings back great memories from late 1999/early 2000. You just don't hear too many beautiful songs like this on country radio anymore. To me, the late 90's and early 00's were the last good years for country.

  41. Stacey Stone

    I love this song I listen to it at work all the time. makes me feel happy. :)

  42. Blake Lindsey

    She is actually singing about Jesus Christ.
    According to her.

  43. Susan Clary

    Charles Martin

    with God all things are possible!!!!!!!

  49. Clint Hurles

    Iam home now and made it back here because of all of my family here with me and the ones up above who loved me.

  50. Virginia Corley

    my fiance has been there for the last six years helping with a depression that could have killed me ages ago. I thank God and him for showing me that despite horrible comments otherwise I'm worth the effort to love

    matt black

    Virginia Corley I'm glad you're alive too

  51. Joanna Gibson

    This is my song. As soon as I here it, I think of my husband. 45 yrs and he is the love.

  52. OutOfThisWorld1013

  53. Johnny on the spot

  54. Rebecca Preboski

  55. Suzanne Bowling

    Love you mom!!

  56. Laurie Marks

    John Withey...I only know that I'm alive because you love me.

    Jae Bee

    Laurie Marks Donald Rich❤

  57. themama471

    I take as being alive because of JESUS.  It is beautiful either way. But mostly for him.

    Aimee smith

    Jesus is the reason I crushed many mountains in my way ..god bless you

    Dayna Gray

    I have always believed this song is for worship and dedicated to God b/c of who Jesus is. It's the shuttle hands lifted and eyes raised, not to mention the lyrics. I completely agree with you. All praise and glory to our Lord and King

  58. purplestareye Karen Jones

    My daughter just sent this to me..because she loves me !

    Laurie Marks

    +CashPresley32 Your comment is adorable and touches me to the soul. I have two autistic sons and they are the absolute loves of my life!

    purplestareye Karen Jones

    @Laurie Marks I have a 6 year old grandson whom is autistic..My daughter whom sent this to me is his mother. I love him...I call him my precious boy ☺


    @Laurie Marks​ and @purplestareye Karen Jones​, I so much much appreciate your comments. My mother looks up to me, and adores me as well, and vice versa. I owe my life to my mom.

    purplestareye Karen Jones

    @CashPresley32 I'm glad something as small as a comment can make a difference in your well being. Really you owe your life to God first then your mom for all her love & compassion for her son. Autistic children are challenging but they are such a blessing...a special gift to their parents if seen with the proper eyes. Many blessings be upon you young man !


    @purplestareye Karen Jones Of course, God does come first in my life. I pray everyday, go to church every Sunday (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), I read the Scriptures daily, and try to always obey the commandments of God. God bless you too.

  60. David Rodriguez

    because you loved me

  61. Phillip Shepherd

    Whats ever happened to jodee messina we miss her music

  62. MarlinMR7

    Oh my god - I have never heard this until today!  Just beautiful!   Another example as to why we need far more women country music singers back on the airwaves/radio again!  Just love it!


    Totally agree! I miss hearing a variety of female artists on country radio so much. It was only in the late 90's and early 00's when there were so many. Now it's only like two getting any constant airplay (Carrie Underwood & Kelsea Ballerini).  :(    It's just another reason why I hardly listen to the radio anymore. I personally think a lot of the women are putting out some of the better music right now.   Love this song too, btw!  :)

  63. keggers2004

    Absolutely love this song!!! Completely reminds me of my husband. I would be lost and alone without him.

  64. Gene P.

    February 18, 2000. A day that will be with me for mortality. I miss you my love, Heart and Soul. I promised you that I would be standing there with you in heaven soon and I meant every word. Rest in peace my sweet Judy. I remember playing this at your funeral, hope you didn't mind. I know it was "our" song.

    Tammy Robinson

    @Gene P. sad!! i am so sorry...

    Sarah LaChance
