The Weakness In Me


The Weakness In Me by Joan Armatrading is one of my all time favorite songs. The words speak to my soul. I can listen to this song over and over and still take away something different.

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 trouble enough
Why do you call me
When you know I can't answer the phone

Make me lie
When I don't want to
And make someone else
Some kind of an unknowing fool
You 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
When I mean to see you
And I mean to hold you
Tightly

Feeling guilty
Worried
Waking from tormented sleep
This old love has me bound
But the new love cuts deep

If I choose now
I'll lose out
One of you has to fall
And I need you
And you

This woman is torn by the two loves in her life. She loves and needs both of them. I haven't been torn between two men but I have been torn between a man and my responsibilities and morals. I do understand how this woman feels.
