This was meant to be about finding the person you love.

How can one sentence contain the same words, yet mean such different things? One means you need help. One means you have hit rock bottom. One means you’re helpless. Unless they really are the same. They’re the same words, after all. Maybe they are the same. One is just glorified over the other, because one is worth it.
