Im 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 Ive got troubles enough
Why do you call me
When you know I can't answer the phone
And make me lie when I don't want to
And make someone else
Some kind of an unknowing fool
Make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong
Or is all the weakness in me

Why do you come here
Pretend to be just passing by
I need to see you
I need to hold you
Tightly

Feeling guilty
And Im worried
And Im waking from a tormented sleep
Cause this old love
You know it has me bound
But the new love cuts so deep
If I choose now
Im bound to lose out
One of you is gonna have to fall
I need you
You baby

Why do you come here
When you know Ive got troubles enough
Why do you call me
When you know I can't answer the phone
And make me lie when I don't want to
Make someone else
Some kind of an unknowing fool
Make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me

Why do you come here
Pretend to be just passing by
I need to see you
I need to hold you
Tightly
