Love Me For A Reason
Johnny Bristol Lyrics


Girl when you hold me, how you control me
You bend and you fold me, anyway you please
It must be easy for you, the loving things that you do
But just a pastime for you, I could never be

And I never know, girl
If I should stay or go
'Cos the games that you play
Keep driving me away
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

Kisses and caresses, are only minor tests, babe
Of love lead to stresses, between a woman and a man
So if love everlasting, isn't what you're asking
I'll have to pass, girl, I'm proud to take a stand

I can't continue guessing
Because it's only messing
With my pride and my mind
So write down this time to time

Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

I'm just a little old-fashioned
It's take more than physical attraction
My initial reaction is honey give me love
Not a facsimile of

Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love (love me, love me)
Don't love me for fun, girl
Let me be the one, girl
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

Girl when you hold me
How you control me
You bend and you fold me
Any way you please

It must be easy for you
The little things that you do
'Cause whenever you're through
You leave at your ease

And I never know, girl
If I should stay or go girl
If you're for real or for play
'Cause you never say


But don't love me for fun, hon
Let me be the one, hon
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, hon
Let me be the one
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

Kisses and caresses, well
Are only minor tests, babe
Of love which it stresses
Between a woman and a man
So if I'm just a desire
A lust you have acquired
Then I must quench the fire
And proudly take a stand

I can't continue guessing
Because it's only messing
With my pride, and my mind
Oh, so right now is time to tell yah

But don't love me for fun, hon
Let me be the one, hon
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love
Don't love me for fun, hon
Let me be the one, hon
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

If you're only teasing
Thinking that you're pleasing
You best be believing
It's gonna take a lot more
'Cause I'm just a little old-fashioned
It takes more than a physical attraction
My initial reaction is
Honey give me love
Not a facsimile of, baby

Don't love me for fun, hon
Let me be the one, hon
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love
Oh, don't love me for fun, hon
Let me be the one, hon
Love me for a reason
Let the reason be love

@Nofirst Orlast Thank you. Dad was pretty remarkable with writing lyrics and creating special melodies. Glad you appreciate it. Thanks. I do miss him, so much. Grateful to have had him for so many years!

Nofirst Orlast

@Karla Gordy Bristol - TV, Hosting & Productions Both he and the Osmonds did wonderful renditions of this song, but it BEGAN with the melody and lyrics created by your dad, a product of his brilliant creativity. That was the real magic. I'm sure you miss him, but those wonderful memories must give you comfort.

David Kessler

@Karla Gordy Bristol - TV, Hosting & Productions wonderful. You come from a great musical tradition. Love and Peace.
