Please Me Like You Want To

This song is by Ben Harper and appears on the album Fight for Your Mind (1995).

Don't do me any favors
Matter of fact, why don't you do yourself a few?
Your presence, it ain't nobody's blessing
I've got plenty of other things that I could do

Oh, oh, not another excuse
Your tired, silly games for me are just no use
And now it's plain for me to see:
You're with somebody that you don't want to be

So won't you: please please me like you want to
Not not like you have to
Oh won't you just go on and leave me
You know leaving me is the least that you could do
You know leaving me is the least that you could do

You could have spared me so much misery
And told me you just wanted a friend
'Cause believe me, there is a difference
When you mean it and when you pretend

Oh, was I just your habit?
'Cause I know a habit is a hard thing to break
But won't you spare me a little mercy?
There's only so much that I can take

So won't you: please please me like you want to
Not not like you have to
Oh won't you just go on and leave me
You know leaving me is the least that you could do
Leaving me is the least that you could do
I said, Leaving me is the least that you could do
