Strongest Weakness

Strongest Weakness

Etta James

I smoked my last cigarette
Threw that nasty habit away
Laid down my last dollar on my last bet
Didn't ever win anyway

Gave up the wine and whiskey
'Cause everybody said I should
But I'm givin' up on quittin' you, baby
'Cause it feels so damn good

You are my strongest weakness
Can't get enough, can't give you up
You are my deepest secret
I know it's wrong but I can't go on

And I try, try, try
I ask myself why, why, why?
My strongest weakness

You been runnin' around for a long time now
I know all the games you play
Sooner or later you will put me down
Gonna have to face it someday

But baby, every time you hold me
And I get another taste of your kiss
I feel a power comin' over me
That my body just can't miss

You are my strongest weakness
Can't get enough, can't give you up
You are my deepest secret
I know it's wrong but I can't go on

I try, try, try,
I ask myself why, why, why?
My strongest weakness

Why can't you just say no?
(Strongest weakness)
I said why can't I let you go?
(Strongest weakness)

Why, why do I keep, keep breakin' down?
(Strongest weakness)
I said why can't I turn around?
(Strongest weakness)

You know I try, try, try
I ask myself why, why, why?
I give in to you, baby
You are my strongest weakness

(Strongest weakness)
Can't get enough, can't give you up
(Deepest secret)
Deepest secret

(Strongest weakness)
Strongest weakness
(Deepest secret)
You are, you are
(Strongest weakness)
