When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I... Lyrics - Marvin Gaye
Review The Song (2)
You know, when you say your marriage vows, they're supposed to be for real. I mean...
if you think back about what you really said, you know, about, honor and loving and
obeying till death do us part and all. But it shouldn't be that way, it should...it
should, it shouldn't be lies because it turns out to be lies. If you don't honor what
you said, you lie to God. The words should be changed.
Ooo now as I recall, we tried a million times
Again and again and again, and that isn't all
I gave my love to you each time to make amends
Suddenly I start to realize I can't make it
Pretty birds fly away, I had to leave you for my health's sake
What to do? Make him pay,
for leaving you, my fine, is to pay forever
So if a fresh new love comes in, I won't say those words again
Instead I'll say I'll try to love and protect you
With all my heart as long as you want me to baby
Ooo if I love again I'm gonna try a new way this time
Memories of the things we did; some we're proud of, some we hid
So when two people have to part, sometimes it makes them stronger
Do you remember all of the bullshit, baby?
You say you love me with all your heart
If you ever loved me will all of your heart
You'd never take a million dollars to part
I really tried, you know I tried, oh baby
Although we tried, all of those promises was nothin' but lies
I really tried, you know how I really tried, we really lied, didn't we baby?
And on top of that you have scandalized my name
What I can't understand is if you love me
How could you turn me into the police?
Didn't I love you good and try to take care of you?
Best that I could
You were so divine
And your love was like mellow wine
Pains of love, miles of tears,
Enough to last me for my lifetime
Broken hearts last for years, soon break away to the noonday sunshine
One thing I can promise, friend: I'll never be back again
But I'm not really bitter babe
I wish you all the luck and all the love in the world,
good love in the world (good luck in the world)
But I know you'll never be satisfied
No, you still want me standin' by your side
Memories haunt you all the time, I will never leave your mind
Got judgement on your side; you've said bad things and you've lied
Still I remember some of the good things baby
Like love after dark and picnics in parks
Those are the days I'll not forget in my life
I'd rather remember, remember the joy we shared babe
I'd rather remember all the fun we had
All I ever really wanted was to love you and treat you right
All we did was fuss and fight
It don't matter baby, take a lesson from them all
I never thought I'd see the day when you'd put me through what you put me through
You tried your best, you say I gave you no rest
(repeat and fade):
When did you stop loving me? When did I stop loving you?

Deep lyrics | Reviewer: Roger James | 5/26/13
One of the more mature lyrics to a broken relationship that I've ever heard. Marvin takes a blame along with the wife. Its generally true that both played a role in getting together and breaking up. Its a sad thing that as much as you love someone at the end it wasn't meant to be but also to not hold any grudges and hopefully go their separate ways peacefully
THE BEST SONG EVER | Reviewer: MONICA | 7/10/09
WOW I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT FINDING THESE LYRICS. THIS SONG REMINDS ME OF MY PARENTS. THEY USED TO PLAY THIS SONG ALL THE TIME AND I LOVED IT. I WAS A LITTLE GIRL THEN AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE THEN BUT I KNEW I LOVED THE WORDS AND THE MUSIC. MARVIN GAYE REALLY OUTDID HIMSELF WITH THIS ENTIRE ALBUM. HE WAS A GENIUS BEFORE HIS TIME. I HATED WHEN HE PASSED. HE IS STILL ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL TIMES. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD BE ABLE TO RELATE TO THIS AND MANY OF HIS SONGS. WHEN DID YOU STOP LOVING ME, WHEN DID I STOP LOVING YOU? POWERFUL, WONDERFUL SONG!!!
