Say You Love Me (Now!)

Rebecca Roubion’s song captures the will-he/won’t-he playfulness of young love

“Say it’s me you found. Finally say you love me now.”

Rebecca Roubion, a young artist out of Nashville, describes her song “Love Me Now” as a “tribute to the guessing game of love.” It captures that “will-he/won’t-he” playfulness (or is it torture?), like the childhood game of plucking the petals of a flower, repeating, “He loves me. He loves me not.”

“I’m a person whose love language is words of affirmation. The song is about wanting to hear the person say they love you … I added in the ‘now’ simply because I’m an impatient person,” Roubion adds with a smile.

Is there a deeper message to the song? “Just shedding light on the beauty, wonder and playfulness of pure love. It’s good to remind ourselves that, while love definitely calls for work and sacrifice, it’s important to keep it childlike and fun. Even in our relationship with the Lord, there should always be romance, spontaneity and adventure.”

For more on Rebecca Roubion, head to her website, and keep an eye out for her new album, scheduled to be released in May.
