Dusty Springfield — Take Me For A Little While lyrics

(Martin / Trader)

I've been trying
To make you love me
But everything I try
Just takes you further from me

You don't love me, oh no
So you treat me cruel
But no matter how you hurt me
I'll always be your fool

But if you don't want me forever
And if you don't need me forever
And if you can't love me forever
Take me for a little while
So I can hold you, baby
So I can make you want me

I gotta stop it
There should be a law
'Cause everytime you put me down
I love you more

And I feel so helpless
And it ain't funny
'Cause deep down inside I know
You're never gonna love me

But if you don't want me forever
And if you don't need me forever
And if you can't love me forever
Take me for a little while
So I can hold you, baby
So I can make you want me

I got to have you baby
Don't you know anyway you want me I'm yours
Won't you have me baby?
Anyway you want me I'm yours
Anything you want me to do
