The Weakness In Me

Album: Walk Under Ladders (1981)
  • 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

    Make me lie
    When I don't want to
    And make someone else
    Some kind of an unknowing fool

    You make me stay
    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 mean to see you
    And I mean to hold you tightly

    Feeling guilty worried
    Waking from tormented sleep
    This old love has me bound
    But the new love cuts deep

    If I choose now
    I'll lose out
    One of you has to fall
    And 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 unknowing fool

    You make me stay
    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 mean to see you
    And I mean to hold you tightly Writer/s: JOAN ANITA BARBARA ARMATRADING
