Some other versions of "Leave It to Me"

Lyrics
You hold your arms open wide
You say come and lay by your side
If this is just another ride you're taking me on,
Then leave me alone

I'm not your part-time man
Love is more than now and then
I've enjoyed as much as this, as I can stand
So, love me or leave me alone

Love me or leave me alone
Love me or, baby,
Believe me, I'm gone
This time I'm gonna be strong

Maybe once upon a time,
I was young and love was blind
I thought I had finally made up my mind
It's sad, but

Love me or leave me alone
Love me or leave me alone
Love me or, baby,
Believe me, I'm gone

Love me or leave me
Girl, don't deceive me
Love me or leave me alone
