LEAVE ME FOR A WHILE

[Verse]
This weekend was fun you know 
but tonight you have to go. 
I'll be thinking about your smile 
while I'm sitting here alone.  
I had so much fun playing  
those games of give and taking  
even though sometimes   
it looked like I was faking.  
But baby you got to know  
that I love you so.  
It's just that sometimes 
I need to be alone. 

[Chorus]   
Oh, won't you leave me now 

and I'll see you in a while.

I just need some time

to pursue my own desires.
Oh won't you leave me now   
but please don't leave forever.  
Leave me babe,  
but only for a while.  
   
[Verse]
Whenever you come back 
you'll claw me like a cat 
until I run and hide from you 
in the place you've set a trap.   
And there's no way to resist you  
once you've saved my picture   
and threaten to expose me   
if I don't stop to kiss you.    
You can bet it's aggravating  
but there's no use complaining  
'cause as soon as you're gone  
I'll be missing you again.  
  

[Chorus]  

Oh, won't you leave me now 

and I'll see you in a while.

I just need some time

to pursue my own desires.  
Oh won't you leave me now  
but please don't leave forever.  
Leave me babe, 

but only for a while.  
  

[Verse]  

You text me so much you know  
I tore the ringer from my phone. 
But there are times in the silence 
that I will still hear my phone.    
And when I check and see  
you haven't texted me,  
I feel let down  
even though I'm tired of that ring.    
So next time I'll just smile,
pick my phone up and dial
and we'll get together  
but only for a while.  
  
[Chorus]  

Oh, won't you leave me now 

and I'll see you in a while.

I just need some time

to pursue my own desires.   
Oh won't you leave me now 
but please don't leave forever.  
Leave me babe,  
but only for a while.
