You Keep Me Hangin’ On

length: 2:43
producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland

Set me free, why don't cha babe
Get out my life, why don't cha babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep a coming around
Playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start?
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me

Set me free, why don't cha babe
Let me be, why don't cha babe
'Cause 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 seeing you only breaks my heart again
And there ain't nothing I can do about it

Woo, set me free, why don't cha babe
Woo, get out my life, why don't cha babe
Set me free, why don't cha babe
Get out my life, why don't cha babe

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul needs to be free
Now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else Hey!

Why don't you be a man about it
And set me free
Now you don't care a thing about me
You're just using me
Go on, get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on...

You’re Gone (But Always in My Heart)

length: 2:38
producer: Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland
Love Is Here,
And, oh my darling, Now You're Gone,
Love Is Here,
And, oh my darling, Now You're Gone,
You persuaded me to love you,
And I did,
But instead of tenderness I found heartache instead,
Into your arms I fell,
So unaware of the loneliness that was waiting there.
Spoken: You closed the door of your heart and turned the key,
locked your love away from me.

Love Is Here,
And, oh my darling, Now You're Gone,
You made me love you,
And oh my darling, Now You're Gone,
You said loving you would make life beautiful
with each passing day,
But as soon as love came into my heart,
you turned and you walked just one way.
Spoken: You stripped me of my dreams,
you gave me faith, then took my hope, look at me now.

Look at me
See what loving you has done to me
Look at my face
See how crying has left its trace
After you made me all your own
And you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love I couldn't keep.
Spoken: My heart cries out for your touch
But you're not there

Mother You, Smother You

lyricist: Eddie Holland
(Brian Holland/Lamont Dozier/Edward Holland, Jr./R. Dean Taylor)

I wanna mother you, smother you
with a love you've never known
I wanna talk to you,
say sweet things to you
Let you know that I'm yours alone
Now, you need a lot of loving,
and my darlin', you need it now
You've been alone for so long
You've forgotten what love is all about
Let me rock you in the cradle of my arms,
let my love protect you from all harm
I'll be your shelter when you want me to
I'll be your comfort when you need me to

I wanna mother you, smother you
with a love that's gentle and true
I wanna talk to you,
say sweet things to you
and my love will see you through
Put your head on my shoulder
Put your hand, darling, in mine
Just let me take you in my arms,
and love away the loneliness you hide
And when life sometimes gets you down,
and you need to cry
Oh, I'll be standing by your side
To be your strength and be your guide

I wanna mother you, smother you
Show me what love is about
I wanna talk to you,
say sweet things to you
Take away all of your doubt

Just let me mother you, smother you
with a love you've never known
I wanna talk to you,
say sweet things to you
Let me know that I'm yours alone

Ooh, mother you, smother you
with a love you've never known
I wanna talk to you,
say sweet things to you
Let me know that I'm yours alone

Mother you,
smother you

I Guess I’ll Always Love You

length: 2:42
producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier
lyricist: Eddie Holland
writer: Lamont Dozier, Eddie Holland, Brian Holland
I guess I'll always love you
You've got the love I need
You've got the love I need

Open up your arms
And let me walk on in
Open up your heart
And let me live again

When you left you left with me
A dream no longer reality
I live the shadows of our past
With this love that's born to last

I guess I'll always love you
You've got the love I need
You've got the love I need

The only time I'm happy
Is when you're on my mind
Every day I live
All my love I give

I've been a thousand places
Seen your smile on a thousand faces
No matter what I try to do
I'm always dreaming of you

I guess I'll always love you
You've got the love I need
You've got the love I need

Every boy that passes by
I see your sparkle in his eye
Right away I stop and stare
Close my eyes and see you there

Whenever I feel almost free
Memories take hold of me
I love you now so much more
Than I ever did before

I guess I'll always love you
I guess I'll always love you
I guess I'll always love you

I’ll Turn to Stone

length: 2:24
producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, R. Dean Taylor
lyricist: Eddie Holland, R. Dean Taylor
Take your love from me
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

If your love I couldn't call my own
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

I need your love in every way
It's your love I cling to
When things slip away
Take your love away
I'll be lost and alone
No reason for living
All purpose would be gone

Without you there
For my eyes to behold
My life would be empty
My heart would grow old

If you take your love from me
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

If your love I couldn't call my own
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

When I think of love
I think of me and you
When I think of happiness
I think of us too

You're my yesterdays
And all my tomorrows
You're the air I breathe
Everything I need

If from my life
You were ever gone
I'd fall to pieces
You I depend on

If you take your love from me
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

If your love I couldn't call my own
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

Picture me without you
You see someone searching
A figure of sadness
Who's heart won't stop hurting

Sorrow would be written
On my face
By the pen of loneliness
Time couldn't erase
I'd be like a statue in a park
Cold and alone
A girl with no heart

If you take your love from me
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

If your love I couldn't call my own
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

Turn to stone
Turn to stone
Just turn to stone, turn to stone
If your love I couldn't call my own
I'll turn to stone
Turn to stone

It’s the Same Old Song

length: 2:32
producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland
Sweet as a honey bee but like a honey bee stings,
you've gone and left my heart in pain.
All you left is our favorite song, the one we danced to all night long.
It used to bring sweet memories of a tender love that used to be,
now it's the same old song but with a diff'rent meaning
since-a you been gone.
Now it's the same, same old song,
but with a diff'rent meaning since-a you been gone.

Fool am I to hear a old love song.
And wanna cry but the melody keeps haunting me
reminding me how in love we used to be.
Keep hearing the part that used to touch our heart saying together forever.
Breaking up never, it's the same old song but with a diff'rent meaning
since-a you been gone.
Now it's the same, same old song,
but with a diff'rent meaning since-a you been gone.

Precious memories keep-a lingering on,
ev'rytime I hear our favorite song, now you're gone, left this emptiness,
I only reminisce.
The happiness we spent, we used to dance to the music
make romance to the music,
now it's the same old song but with a diff'rent meaning
since-a you been gone.
Now it's the same, same old song,
but with a diff'rent meaning since-a you been gone.
Oh I can't bear to hear it,
it's the same old song but with a diff'rent meaning since you been gone;
it's the same old song but with a diff'rent meaning since you been gone;


Going Down for the Third Time

length: 2:37
producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland
Save me! Save me, save me!
Save me! Save me, save me!

I'm going down, down for the third time
I'm going down, down for the third time
Drowning in tears from my heart that's hurting
Drowning in tears from a love that's uncertain.

I'm lost in a world without love, a sea of emptyness
The love we knew is being washed away
Don't think I can last, my heart is sinking fast.

I'm going down, down for the third time
Trying to hold on to a love that's gone
Drowning in the love that keeps me breathing
Drowning in the fear that my arms you're leaving.

Bring back that love we knew
Darling let me live again
A little tenderness to me start showing
Fill my heart with love till it's overflowing.

I'm going down, down for the third time
Trying to hold on to a love that's gone
I'm going down, down for the third time
So won't you save this heart of mine.

Going down, down for the third time
Going down, down for the third time
I'm like a ship all alone on a raging sea
You got me tossing and a-turning
And I can't get free.

Reach out your hand for me
Darling, save what's left of our love
I'll forgive your lies and alibies
If you'll wipe my crying eyes.

I'm going down, down for the third time
So won't you save this heart of hime
I've loved too long, I love too strong
Now little boy you know you're doing me wrong
Come on and save me
Come on and save me
Come on and save me
I'm going down, down for the third time.

Love Is in Our Hearts

length: 2:10
producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, James Dean
lyricist: Eddie Holland
We're happy holding hands
Oh, to us love's been grand
Walking down the path of love
While heaven smiles from up above
Cause love is in our hearts.

We stroll through the park
A kiss stolen in the dark
I'm the girl that feels supreme
For he might do most anything
Cause love is in our hearts.

When he looks into my eyes
I feel so good inside
And when he reaches out for me
It's the fourth of July
I'm so happy I could cry.

The moon's not up tonight
Our love lights up the sky
If shadows dark our day
We'll use our love to light our way
Cause love is in our hearts.

Oh, the birds in the trees
Sing lovely melodies
Sing about the love that's strong
A love affair that can't go wrong
Cause love is in our hearts.

Soft music fills the air
We haven't got a care
Our life's filled with joy
Happy is this girl and boy, oh
Cause love is in our hearts.

Love is in our hearts
Sweet love is in our hearts
Sweet love, sweet, sweet,
Sweet love is in our hearts
Love is in our hearts, oh
Love is in our hearts
Sweet love is in our hearts.

Remove This Doubt

Brian Holland-Lamont Dozier-Edward Holland, Jr.
It's hurting me, it's hurting me
This doubt is hurting me.

So remove this doubt
From my heart, little boy
And let me live my life
Knowing you care.

Remove this doubt
From my mind, little boy
And let me breathe again
Feeling my love you share.

Each time we meet
You make me feel so incomplete
There's no joy in the air
I just don't think you care.

Close the door of doubt forever more
And may it never more make me unsure
Turn the key and lock away this doubt in me
Keep it in the dark, not in my heart
Be more tender
Completely surrender your love to me
Be sweet and not discreet.

Remove this doubt
From my mind, little boy
And let me breathe again
Feeling my love you share.

Each time we meet
You make me feel so incomplete
There's no joy in the air
I just don't think you care.

Remove this doubt in our hearts
Remove this doubt from my heart.

There’s No Stopping Us Now

producer: Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland
composer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland
lyricist: Eddie Holland
There's no stopping us now
Now that we found our way
There's no stopping us now
Our love is here to stay
Foolishly we've been apart
Breaking each other's heart
stubbornness and foolish pride
Caused us to push love aside
The loneliness from being apart
Opened up our eyes
To the love that was always there
Deep inside

Now that we've faced the unknown
And we can't make it alone
We're closer together more now then ever
For now that we've found love
We've got to hold on love

There's no stopping us now
This time love's here to stay
There's no stopping us now
Now we have found our way
The precious hours we have lost
We'll never regain
But together we'll fill the hours that remain
The loneliness we have known
We'll push behind
Together forever
We'll make up for all lost time

Now we're in each other's arms
Nothing can do us harm
Nothing can shake us,
Nothing can break us
We'll be together
Forever and ever

There's no stopping us now
This time love's here to stay
There's no stopping us now
Together we've found the way
Never again shall foolish pride keep us apart
Never again shall stubbornness break our hearts
There's no stopping us now
Now that we've found our way
Would you believe?
There's no stopping us now
Now that love's here to stay
There's no stopping us now
Now that we've

Heat wave
Heat wave

Whenever I'm with you
Something inside
Starts to burn deep
And my heart's filled with fire
Could be that I'm very sentimental
Or is this just the way love's supposed to be?

I got a heat wave
Burning in my heart
I can't keep from crying
Tearing me apart

Sometimes she calls my name
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can't explain
I feel, yeah I feel
I feel this burning flame
This high blood pressure's got a hold on me
'Cause this is the way love's supposed to be

I got a heat wave
Burning in my heart
I can't keep from crying
Tearing me apart

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Just give me another chance
This could be a new romance

Heat wave
