ARMATRADING, Joan



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 gained 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?


Make me lie, when I don't want to

And make someone else some kind of an unknowin' fool

You make me stare, when I should not

Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me?


Why do you come here

And pretend to be just passing by?

But I need to see you,

And I mean to hold you

Tightly


Feeling guilty, worried,

Waking from tormented sleep

This old love has me bound

But this new love cuts deep


If I choose now, I'll lose out

One of you has to fall

But I need you, and you


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?


Make me lie, when I don't want to

And make someone else some kind of an unknowin' fool

You make me stare, when I should not

Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me?


Why do you come here

And pretend to be just passing by?

But I need to see you,

And I mean to hold you

Tightly
