the weakness in me ( joan armatrading ) lyrics – 10 things i hate about you

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 gain 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
you make me love and i don’t want to
make someone else, i’m tired of not going home
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 p*ssing 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
you make me love and i don’t want to
make someone else, i’m tired of not going home
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 p*ssing by
but i mean to see you
and i mean to hold you, tightly
