Weak
SWV Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't know what it is that you've done to me
But it's caused me to act in such a crazy way
Whatever it is that you do when you do what you're doing
It's a feeling that I want to stay

'Cause my heart starts beating triple time
With thoughts of loving you on my mind
I can't figure out just what to do
When the cause and cure is you

I get so weak in the knees, I can hardly speak
I lose all control and something takes over me
In a daze, your love's so amazing, it's not a phase
I want you to stay with me, by my side
I swallow my pride, your love is so sweet
It knocks me right off of my feet
Can't explain why your loving makes me weak

Time after time after time I've tried to fight it
But your love is strong it keeps on holding on
Resistance is down when you're around, cries fading
In my condition I don't want to be alone

'Cause my heart starts beating triple time
With thoughts of loving you on my mind
I can't figure out just what to do
When the cause and cure is you, oh

I get so weak in the knees, I can hardly speak
I lose all control and something takes over me
In a daze, your love's so amazing, it's not a phase
I want you to stay with me, by my side
I swallow my pride, your love is so sweet
It knocks me right off of my feet
Can't explain why your loving makes me weak

I try hard to fight it
No way can I deny it
Your love's so sweet
It knocks me off my feet

I get so weak in the knees, I can hardly speak
I lose all control and something takes over me
In a daze and your love's so amazing, it's not a phase
I want you to stay with me, by my side
I swallow my pride, your love is so sweet
It knocks me right off of my feet
Can't explain why your loving makes me weak

I get so weak
Blood starts racing through my veins
I get so weak
Boy, it's something I can't explain
I get so weak
Something 'bout the way you do the things you do, it
Knocks me right off of my feet (off my feet)
I can't explain why your loving makes me weak (oh yeah)

I get so weak in the knees, I can hardly speak
I lose all control and something takes over me
In a daze and your love's so amazing, it's not a phase
I want you to stay with me, by my side
I swallow my pride, your love is so sweet
It knocks me right off of my feet (oh, I)
Can't explain why your loving makes me weak
