Marvin Gaye Just to Keep You Satisfied Lyrics

Last updated: 04/02/2013 02:05:54 PM

You were my wife, my life, my hopes and dreams
For you to understand what this means, I shall explain
I stood all the jealousy, all the bitchin' too
Yes, I'd forget it all once in bed with you
Ooo darling how could we end up like this?
Oh baby let me reminisce

Oh and when we, woo, stopped the hands of time
You set my soul on fire, my one desire
Was to love you and think of you with pride
And keep you satisfied, oh baby oh baby
We could not bear the mental strain
Leave you, I never meant to
Now you see how much you hurt me
But if you ever need me, I'll be by your side
Though the many happy times we had
Can never really outweigh the bad
Oh I'll never love nobody like I loved you baby

It's time for us to say farewell, farewell my darlin'
Maybe we'll meet down the line
It's too late for you and me, it's too late for you and I
Much too late for you to cry
It's too late for you and me, much too late for you and I
It's too late for you and me, much too late for you to cry baby
Ah we tried, God knows we tried
Now it's too late to live and love and ah it's too late baby
It's too late for you and me, much too late for you to cry
Oh oh ohhh it's much too late
Well, all we can do is, we can both try to be happy

I love this song, it's my favourite on the "Lets get it on" album and the final track, it's obviously about a break-up but Marvin captures the emotion beautifully, you can feel that he loved her but they couldn't stay together,
great song, still love your music Marvin x

Love this.... | Reviewer: Michelle | 4/2/09

Happy Birthday Marvin,

Wow everytime I hear this song it brings tears to my eye, one of my most favorite Marvin Gaye songs next to Travel Man love the jazzy feel it has. Gone way too soon! Miss you.
