"Hope You Love Me Like You Say You Do" is a song performed by Huey Lewis and the News, released as the second single from the album Picture This in 1982. The single peaked at number 36 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, making it the band's second top 40 hit.[1]

The song was written by Mike Duke, who would later write the songs, "Doing It All for My Baby" (1986) and "Let Her Go and Start Over" (2001), for the band. The lyrics explore the tension between a desire for independence and a need for compromise in a romantic relationship.

A music video was produced with the band playing the song in the studio.[citation needed]
