Reach Out I'll Be There

length: 3:15
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland

Now if you feel that you can't go on
Because all of your hope is gone,
And your life is filled with much confusion
Until happiness is just an illusion,
And your world around is crumblin' down;
Darling, reach out (come on girl, reach on out for me)
Reach out (reach out for me.)
I'll be there, with a love that will shelter you.
I'll be there, with a love that will see you through.
I'll be there to always see you through.

When you feel lost and about to give up
'Cause your best just ain't good enough
And you feel the world has grown cold,
And you're drifting out all on your own,
And you need a hand to hold:
Darling, reach out (come on girl, reach out for me)
Reach out (reach out for me.)
I'll be there, to love and comfort you,
And I'll be there, to cherish and care for you.
I'll be there to love and comfort you.

I can tell the way you hang your head,
You're without love and now you're afraid
And through your tears you look around,
But there's no peace of mind to be found.
I know what you're thinkin',
You're alone now, no love of your own,
But darling, reach out (come on girl, reach out for me)
Reach out (reach out for me.)
Just look over your shoulder
I'll be there, to give you all the love you need,
And I'll be there, you can always depend on me.

You Keep Me Hanging On

length: 3:09
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland
Set me free why doncha babe
Get out of my life why doncha babe
Cuz you don't really love me, you just keep me hangin' on
You don't really need me but ya keep me hangin' on

Why do ya keep a'comin' around playin' with my heart
Why doncha get out of my life and let me make a new start
Let me get over you the way you've gotten over me-hey

Set me free why doncha babe
Let me be why doncha babe
Cuz you don't really love me, you just keep me hangin' on
Now you don't really want me, you just keep me hangin' on

You say although we broke up you still wanna be just friends
But how can we still be friends when seein' you only breaks my heart again

[Spoken:]

Whoa-oh-oh

Set me free why doncha babe (whoa-oh-oh)
Get out of my life why doncha babe (whoa-oh-oh)
Set me free why doncha babe
Get out of my life why doncha babe

You claim you still care for me but your heart and soul need to be free
And now that you've got your freedom you want to still hold on to me
You don't want me or yourself so let me find somebody else, hey hey

Why doncha be a man about it and set me free
Now you don't care a thing about me, you're just usin' me-go on
Get out, get out of my life and let me sleep at night

[Fade:] you don't really love me, you just

Baby I Need Your Loving

length: 3:09
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland
Baby, I need your lovin';
Baby, I need your lovin';
Although you're never near,
Your voice I often hear.
Another day, 'nother night,
I long to hold you tight,
'Cause I'm so lonely.

Baby, I need your lovin'
Got to have all your lovin'.
Baby I need your lovin';
Got to have all you lovin'.

Some say it's a sign of weakness
For a man to beg.
Then weak I'd rather be,
If it means having you to keep,
'Cause lately I've been losing sleep.

Baby, I need your lovin'
Got to have all your lovin'.
Baby I need your lovin';
Got to have all you lovin'.

Lonely nights echo your name,
Oh, sometimes I wonder
Will I ever be the same?
Oh yeah! When you see me smiling,
You know things have gotten worse.
Any smile you might see has all been rehearsed.
Darling, I can't go on without you.
This emptiness won't let me live without you;
This loneliness inside, darling,
Makes me feel half alive.

Baby, I need your lovin'
Got to have all your lovin'.
Baby I need your lovin';
Got to have all you lovin'.
Baby, I need your lovin'
Got to have all your lovin'.
Baby I need your lovin';
Got to have all you lovin'.
Baby, I need your lovin'
Got to have all your lovin'.
Baby I need your lovin';
Got to have all you lovin'.

I Heard It Through the Grapevine

length: 3:26
writer: Norman Whitfield, Barrett Strong
I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey, honey yeah.
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine baby

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
'Cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you loved some one else
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey, honey yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby

People say believe half of what you see
Son and none of what you hear
But I can't help but be confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?

Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
I'm just about to love my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah

Twenty-Five Miles

length: 3:25
Hey hey uh huh huh huh huh oh
Uh huh huh huh huh huh yeah
It's twenty five miles from home
Girl, my feet are hurting mighty bad
Now I've been walking a three day, two lonely nights
You know that I'm mighty mad
But I got a woman waiting for me
That's gonna make this trip worthwhile
You see she's got the kind of lovin' and a kissing
A make a man go stone wild
So I got to keep on walkin'
I got to walk on, oh ho ho
I, I, I, I'm so tired
But I just can't lose my stride

I got fifteen miles to go now
And I can hear my baby calling my name
It's as if as though I'm standing at her front door
I can hear that doggone plain
Now I'll be so glad to see my baby
And hold her in my arms
Now when I kiss her lips
I turn a back over flip and I'll forget these feet of mine
I got to keep on walkin'
I got to walk on oh ho ho
I, I, I, I, I'm so tired but I just can't lose my stride
Walk on let me tell you ya'll I, I, I, I, I, I'm so tired
But I just can't lose my stride
Come on feet don't fail me now
I got ten more miles to go
I got nine, eight, seven, six, eight, six
I got a five more miles to go
Now over the hill just around the bend
Huh although my feet are tired I can't lose my stride
I got to get to my baby again

I'll Be There

length: 4:11
You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back,
Where there is love, I'll be there. (I'll be there)

I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll have faith in all you do.
Just call my name and I'll be there. (I'll be there)

I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you,
I'm so glad that I found you.

I'll be there with a love that's strong,
I'll be your strength,
I'll keep holdin' on. (holdin' on)
Yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter,
Togetherness, girl, is all I'm after,
Whenever you need me, I'll be there. (I'll be there)

I'll be there to protect you, (yeah baby)
With unselfish love that respects you.
Just call my name, I'll be there. (I'll be there)

Build my world of dreams around you,
I'm so glad that I found you.

I'll be there with a love that's strong,

If you should ever find someone new
I know he better be good to you
Cause if he doesn't

My Girl

length: 3:06
composer: Smokey Robinson, Ronald White
lyricist: Smokey Robinson
I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it's cold outside I've got the month of May
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

I've got so much honey the bees envy me
I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Ooh

I don't need no money, fortune, or fame
I've got all the riches baby one man can claim
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
With my girl

I've even got the month of May
With my girl

I Want You Back

length: 3:01
writer: Berry Gordy, Deke Richards, Fonce Mizell, Freddie Perren
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
To take second look

Oh baby give me one more chance
To show you that I love you
Won't you please send me back in your heart

Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
But now since I see you in his arms
I want you back
Yes I do now
I want you back
Ooh ooh baby
Yeah yeah, naw

Trying to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right

Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want around
Oh baby give me one more chance
To show you that I love you
Won't you please send me back in your heart

Abuh buh buh buh
All I want!
Abuh buh buh buh
All I need!
Abuh buh buh buh

Stop! In the Name of Love

length: 2:56
Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart

Baby, baby, I'm aware of where you go
Each time you leave my door
I watch you walk down the street
Knowing your other love you'll meet
This time before you run to her
Leaving me alone and hurt
(think it over) after I've been good to you ?
(think it over) after I've been sweet to you ?

Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Think it over
Think it over

I've known of your, your secluded nights
I've even seen her maybe once or twice
But is her sweet expression
Worth more than my love and affection?
But this time before you leave my arms
And rush off to her charms
(think it over) haven't I been good to you?
(think it over) haven't I been sweet to you?

Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Think it over
Think it over

I've tried so hard, hard to be patient
Hoping you'll stop this infatuation
But each time you are together
I'm so afraid I'll be losing you forever

Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart

You Are Everything

length: 3:53
Oh darling
I want to be everything to you

You are everything
You are my everything

Today I saw somebody
Who looked just like you
He walked like you do
I thought it was you
As he turned the corner
I called out your name
I felt so ashamed
When it wasn't you
Wasn't you

You are everything
And everything is you
Oh, you are everything
And everything is you
Oh you are everything
And everything is you

How can I forget
When each face that I see
Brings back memories
Of being with you
I just can't go on
Living life as I do
Comparing each girl with you
Knowing they just won't do
They're not you

The Tracks of My Tears

length: 2:52
writer: Marvin Tarplin, Warren “Pete” Moore, Smokey Robinson
People say I'm the life of the party
Because I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue
So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
I need you, need you
Since you left me if you see me with another girl
Seeming like I'm having fun
Although she may be cute

She's just a substitute
Because you're the permanent one
So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

I need you, need you
Outside I'm masquerading
Inside my hope is fading
Just a clown oh yeah
Since you put me down
My smile is my make up

I wear since my break up with you
So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears
