"Help Me" as written by and Johnette Lin Napolitano....
Help me
I think I'm falling
In love again
When I get that crazy feeling, I know
I'm in trouble again
I'm in trouble

'Cause you're a rambler and a gambler
And a sweet-taIking-ladies man
And you love your lovin'
But not like you love your freedom

Help me
I think I'm falling
In love too fast
It's got me hoping for the future
And worrying about the past
'Cause I've seen some hot hot blazes
Come down to smoke and ash
We love our lovin'

But not like we love our freedom
Didn't it feel good
We were sitting there talking
Or lying there not talking
Didn't it feel good
You dance with the lady
With the hole in her stocking

Didn't it feel good
Didn't it feel good
Help me
I think I'm falling
In love with you

Are you going to let me go there by myself
That's such a lonely thing to do
Both of us flirting around
Flirting and flirting

Hurting too
We love our lovin'
But not like we love our freedom

    General Commentl really like this song. joni mitchell is such a great singer. obviously, this song is about falling in love, and deciding if its the right thing to do at that moment "but not like we love our freedom".

    General CommentNo matter how old I am, or who I am in love with, I find myself relating back to this song, I wonder if I will ever compromise my freedom for love.

    General Commenti love this song so much, it's gorgeously anthematic

    General CommentHer voice is so calm and light and, floaty.
    I hear the part "not like we love our freedom" after the parts saying they love their lovin, that makes it seem like they might have a harder time getting together as an "item" because they like having that freedom so much, but that's just what I think.

    Song MeaningIt's been widey documented that this song, as well as "Free Man in Paris", are about record mogul David Geffin and his free spirited ways during the 70's. "we love our lovin' but not like we love our freedom" is somewhat of a cynical comment on fooling around and not being committed.

    General CommentWhenever I listen to some of her songs I'm thinking inside..never ever: this one it's a beautiful song per se, but If I would ever find myself in the position someone else has decided for me, that is to beg for help, that would be the perfect moment to realize it's time to say bye instead. Some people are just interested in making you feel uncomfortable, so they can thrive, nothing more than that, whatever part they got so good at playing.
