Thelma Houston

Thelma Houston's, "Don't Leave Me This Way"
Better Lyrics:
Don't ask them to stay
Fight for their lives
They must stay alive
Push comes to shove, oh, Karzai
Don't ask them to stay, no
We must persist
Indeed insist
That they take less risks
Don't ask them to stay

Oh Karzai, we need guarantees that will protect our troops
Now, come around and do what you've got to do
Can't just sit around and rule from Kabul
Security, it's getting out of control
Come on and provide that which our troops need
A sealed deal if you provide immunity
Original Lyrics:
Don't leave me this way
I can't survive
I can't stay alive
Without your love, oh, baby
Don't leave me this way, no
I can't exist
I'll surely miss
Your tender kiss
Don't leave me this way

Oh baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you
Now, come on down and do what you've got to do
You started this fire down in my soul
Now, can't you see, it's burning out of control
Come on and satisfy the need in me
'Cause only your good lovin' can set me free
