Love Me Like a Man

This song is by Bonnie Raitt and appears on the album Give It Up (1972) and on the album Road Tested (1995).


The men that I've been seeing, baby
Got their soul up on a shelf
You know they could never love me
When they can't even love themselves

But I need someone to love me
Someone to really understand
Who won't put himself above me
Who'll just love me like a man

I never seen such losers darlin'
Even though I try...
...To find a mind who can take me home
'Stead of taking me for a ride

And I need someone to love me
I know you can
Believe me when I tell you
You can love me like a man

Oh they want me to rock them
Like my back ain't got no bone
I want a man to rock me
Like my... backbone was his own

Baby, I know you can
Believe me when I tell you
You can love me like a man

I Come home sad and lonely
Feel like I wanna cry
I need someone to hold me
Not some fool to ask me why

And I need someone to love me
Darlin' I know you can

Don't you put yourself above me
You just love me like a man
