Dusty Springfield – What Good Is I Love You lyrics

(Ellie Greenwich / Mike Rashkow)

You say you love me
More than you could ever love her,
But circumstance has made you stay by her side
You'll never leave her
God knows you've tried
But I understand
A man ain't nothing but a man

Why do I need you when we can't be together?
What good is "I want you", when you're passing me by?
I can't keep on saying "I love you" forever
What good is "I love you", when you're saying goodbye

No-one has ever made me so very happy
When we're together, baby
Everything is all right
But here on my pillow
Alone at night
My heart keeps on crying?
Something's telling me you're lying

Why do I need you when we can't be together?
What good is "I want you", when you're passing me by?
I can't keep on saying "I love you" forever
What good is "I love you", when you're saying goodbye

Why should I still love you
Why should I still keep thinkin' about you baby--thinkin' about you baby
Why should I cry
Oh why should I


What good is "I need you" when we can't be together?
What good is "I want you", when you're passing me by?
I can't keep on saying "I love you" forever
What good is "I love you", when you're saying goodbye?
