THE WEAKNESS IN ME
Melissa Etheridge


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
It's 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

You made me lie
When I don't want to
And make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool
And you make 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 need see you
And I need to hold you tightly

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

If I choose now
I'll lose out
Ohh 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 made me lie
When I don't want to
You make someone else some kind of an unkowing fool
And you make 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 need see you
And I need hold you tightly
