lifeblood: songs: the weakness in me


i'm not the sort of person
who falls in and quickly out of love
but to you i gave my affection
right from the start
i have a lover who loves me
how could i break such a heart
yet still you get my attention

why do you come here
when you know i've got troubles enough
why do you call me
when you know i can't answer the phone
and make me lie when i don't want to
and make someone else
some kind of an unknowing fool
make me stay when i should not
are you so strong
or is all the weakness in me

why do you come here
pretend to be just passing by
i need to see you
i need to hold you
tightly

feeling guilty
and i'm worried
and i'm waking from a tormented sleep
'cause this old love
you know it has me bound
but the new love cuts so deep
if i choose now
i'm bound to lose out
one of you is gonna have to fall
i need you
you baby

why do you come here
when you know i've got troubles enough
why do you call me
when you know i can't answer the phone
and make me lie when i don't want to
make someone else
some kind of an unknowing fool
make me stay when i should not
are you so strong or is all the weakness in me

why do you come here
pretend to be just passing by
i need to see you
i need to hold you
tightly
