"The Weakness In Me" as written by and Joan Anita Barbara Armatrading....
I'm not this sort of person
Who falls in and quickly out of love
But to you I gave my affection right from the start.
If I have a lover who loves me
How could I break such a heart?
You can still get my attention right from the start.

[Chorus]
Why do you come here when you know I got troubles 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 unknowing fool
You make me stare when I should not.
Are you so strong or is the weakness in me?

Why do you come here and pretend to be just passing by?
But I need to see you
And I need to hold you... tightly
Baby

Feelin' guilty... worried
Waking from tormented sleep
This old love has been bound, but the new love cuts deep.
If I choose now, I lose out
'cause when all this has to fall
I need you and you alone

[Chorus]
Why do you come here when you know I got troubles enough?
Why do you call me when you know I can't answer the phone?
You make me lie when I don't want to
And make someone else some kind of unknowing fool.
You make me stare when I should not
Are you so strong or is the weakness in me?

You make me lie when I don't want to
And make someone else some kind of unknowing fool.
You make me stare when I should not.
Are you so strong or is the weakness in me?

Why do you come here and pretend to be just passing by?
When I need to see you
And I need hold you... tightly
Baby

    General CommentEasily about being torn between 2 lovers. The one you're with, and the one you keep running to behind your lovers back.

    I think its amazing the way instead of playing the whole thing as melodrama, the words work with subteltly and really make you feel bad for the person in that situation. the tone and remorse in the vocals is outstanding too.

    gotta give keisha props for pulling off this cover with as much class as the original. this version leaves me feelin breathless.
