Take Me For A Little While Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

I've been trying
To make you love me
But everything I try
Just takes you further from me

You don't love me, oh no
So you treat me cruel
But no matter how you hurt me
I'll always be your fool

But if you don't want me forever
And if you don't need me forever
And if you can't love me forever

Take me for a little while
So I can hold you, baby
(Take me for a little while)
So I can make you want me

I gotta stop it
There should be a law
(Baby, I need you)
'Cause every time you put me down
I love you more

And I feel so helpless
(Baby, I need you)
And it ain't funny
(You know, I need you)
'Cause deep down inside I know
You're never gonna love me

But if you don't want me forever
And if you don't need me forever
And if you can't love me forever

Take me for a little while
So I can hold you, baby
(Take me for a little while)
So I can make you want me

(Take me for a little while)
I got to have you, baby
(Take me for a little while)
Don't you know anyway you want me I'm yours
(Take me for a little while)

(Take me for a little while)
Won't you have me, baby?
(Take me for a little while)
Anyway you want me I'm yours
(Take me for a little while)
Anything you want me to do
(Take me for a little while)
