(Gore / Weston)

I tried so hard to be carefree
Rolling out of someone's bed
Into the sunshine
But the sun, oh, coming up
Doesn't always bring the light, oh
And somehow, somehow I feel, oh
It's just not right
No, not for me

Well it's been so long
Since I've been loved by name, oh-ho
Love me by name, ah
Love me by name
Come on, come on, ooh-hoo
Love me

Here I feel afraid, ooh
And I don't know why
You're surely not the first I've had, ah, oh
Who held me gently, yeah
Oh, who took the sweet time
Just to ask me about me
Well, well maybe this time
Oh god, let it be
Oh, it's such so, so, so long
Since I've been loved, oh, by name

Love me by name
Ah, love me by name
Come on and love me, oh baby
Yes, love me, aah, aah

Oh, love me by name, oh
Why don't you love me, ah
Come on, come on, ahh, ahh
Sweet baby
Oh won't you love me, yeah
Love me by name
