Lesley Gore – Love Me By Name lyrics

I tried so hard, to be carefree
Rolling out of someone's bed into the sunshine
But the sun coming up
Doesn't always bring the light
And somehow I feel
It's just not right, not for me

It's been so long
Since I've been loved by name
Love me by name
Love me by name
Come on, come on, come on, come on

I feel afraid, I don't know why
You're surely not the first I've had
Who held me gently
Who took the sweet time to ask me about me
Well maybe this time, oh, God, let it be

Repeat Chorus
