is this what i get for loving you? lyrics – marianne faithfull

there’s been a lot of talk around
that you’ve been seen with a certain party
and now i’m so afraid i’m losing you.

oh baby, don’t tell me you don’t want my love,
i couldn’t give it to just anybody.
baby, won’t you say it isn’t true.

don’t leave me, baby,
don’t tell me it’s over,

what will there be left for me?
it’s such a cruel world to be alone in.
i always needed you to look out for me.

oh baby, i’m gonna miss your loving arms
’cause they’re the only arms i feel at home in.
don’t you know how lonely i’m gonna be?

don’t leave me, baby,
don’t tell me it’s over,
after i trusted you and did my best
to make you happy!

is this what i get for loving you, baby?
is this what i get for loving you, baby?
there was a night when you held me tight
and you said you’d always love me …
you said you’d always need me …
after i trusted you and did my best
to make you happy!

is this what i get for loving you, baby?
is this what i get for loving you, baby?
there was a night when you held me tight
and you said you’d always love me …
you said you’d always need me …

what will there be left for me?
it’s such a cruel world to be alone in.
i always needed you to look out for me.

oh baby, i’m gonna miss your loving arms
’cause they’re the only arms i feel at home in.
don’t you know how lonely i’m gonna be?

don’t leave me, baby,
don’t tell me it’s over,
after i trusted you and did my best
to make you happy!

is this what i get for loving you, baby?
is this what i get for loving you, baby?
there was a night when you held me tight
and you said you’d always love me …
you said you’d always need me …
