LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME

(Walter Donaldson, Gus Kahn 1920)

 

The suspense is killing me

I can’t stand uncertainty

Tell me now I‘ve got to know

Whether you want me to stay or go

 

Love me or leave me or let me be lonely

You won’t believe me but I love you only

I’d rather be lonely than happy with somebody else

 

You might find the night time the right time for kissing

Night-time is my time for just reminiscing

Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

 

There’ll be no one unless that someone is you

I intend to be independently blue

 

I want your love, but I don’t wanna borrow

Have it today to give back tomorrow

Your love is my love

There’s no love for nobody else
