Please Me Like You Want To Lyrics

by Ben Harper

Don't do me any favors
Matter of fact, why don't you do yourself a few?
Your presence, it ain't nobody's blessing
I've got plenty of other things that I could do

Oh no, not another excuse
Your tired silly games, for me, are just no use
And now it's plain for me to see
You're with somebody that you don't want to be

So won't you please, please me like you want to?
Not, not, like you have to
Or won't you just go on and leave me?
You know leaving me is the least that you could do
You know leaving me is the least that you could do

You could have spared me so much misery
And told me you just wanted a friend
'Cause believe me, there is a difference
When you mean it and when you pretend

Or was I just your habit
'Cause I know a habit is a hard thing to break
But won't you spare me a little mercy
There's only so much that I can take

So won't you please, please me like you want to?
Not, not, like you have to
Or won't you just go on and leave me?
You know leaving me is the least that you could do
Leaving me is the least that you could do
I said, leaving me is the least that you could do
