The Weakness In Me Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 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 make me lie when I don't want to
And you make someone else
Some kind of an unknowing fool
And 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 passing by?
When I mean to see you
And I mean to hold you tightly

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

And if I choose now, I'll lose out
Oh, 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 lie when I don't want to
And you make someone else
Some kind of an unknowing fool
And 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 passing by?
But I mean to see you
And I mean to hold you tightly
