I know you can't always be here with me
You can't find what all you need is just one man
You're hardly ever free and seldom lonely
What I'm tryin' to say is, love me when you can

And don't feel like I expect you to be through me
Any time you'll have leave I'll understand
I don't have what all it takes to make you happy
What I'm tryin' to say is, love me when you can

Let me be the one you sometimes come to
You just barely have the time for one more friend
I'll be satisfied with any crumb you'll throw me
What I'm tryin' to say is, love me when you can

Don't feel like I expect you to be through me
Any time you'll have leave, I'll understand
I'll be satisfied with any crumb you'll throw me
What I'm tryin' to say is, love me when you can
