For my friend, who knows who they are...

And also because I just love this song...***

Joan Armatrading - The Weakness In Me

I'm 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 I've 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.
And make me stay when I should not.
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me.
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by?
But I need to see you - I need to hold you - tightly.

Feeling guilty,
And I'm worried, waking from tormented sleep
'Cause this old love has me bound,
But this new love cuts so deep.
If I choose now, I'll lose out;
One of you has to fall.
I need you, and you...

Why do you come here, when you know I've 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, and pretend to be just passing by?
But I need to see you - I need to hold you - tightly.



***[DISCLAIMER]
This is actually just a great song, and I am in fact pointing it out for a friend of mine. I am in no way whatsoever personally identifying with this song, I've just happened to love it for many years and I am a big admirer of Joan Armatrading. This and Drop The Pilot are my favorite songs by her, but I'm not personally in any love triangle.
