All the songs I have sung you
More often than you know
Cos you're the love that I've clung to
More often than I've let it show
And then I wish you would leave me
And then I wish you would go
And then I wish you didn't need me
And I wish I don't love you so

Cos I just can't go on
So please don't do me wrong
No I won't do you harm
My love for you goes on and on

There's no one else I want beside here
Give me your coldest shoulder to cry upon
You're never anywhere I find you
You're never anything I rely upon
And then I wish you would leave me
And then I wish you would go
And then I wish you didn't need me
And then I wish I didn't know

But I just can't go on
So please don't do me wrong
No I won't do you harm
My love for you goes on and on
No I just can't go on
So please don't do me wrong
No I won't do you harm
My love goes on and on...

    General CommentThe 'wish you would leave me' etc. always implies to me a self-loathing, or a suicidal painedness where there's this one good thing left; dazzlingly good but the rest is awful. 'you' leaving 'me' would remove the justification, which could be easier.
    And I'm agreeing about his voice: things like "I just can't go on" are not good lyrics without his yell.
