Gaye, Marvin - Distant Lover Lyrics

Distant lover, lover
So many miles away
Heaven knows that I long for you

Every night, every night
And sometimes I yearn
Through the day

Distant lover
You should think about me
And say a prayer for me

Please, please baby
Think about me sometimes
Think about me here
Here in misery, misery

As I reminisce, oh baby
Through our joyful summer together
The promises we made
All the daily letters

Then, all of a sudden
Everything seemed to explode
Now, I gaze out my window
Sugar, down a lonesome road

Distant lover
Sugar, how can you treat my heart
So mean and cruel?
Sugar, sugar

That every moment when I spent with you
I treasure it like it was
A precious jewel, oh baby
Lord have mercy

Oh baby, don't go
Please, come back baby
Somethin' I wanna say
When you left you took all of me with you

My Lord I wonder
Do you wanna hear me scream, plead
And please, please, oh please baby
Come back and hold me, girl
Baby please, please

    my tata recently passed a about three weeks ago. he had just turned 60. Phenomena is a bitch. him and I were basically the same person. we had the same personality, same music taste, same sense of fashion (and I’m an 18 yr old girl). hell, we even had the same front teeth haha. tata, just wanna let you know that I went through ur records & jacked yo ass lmao. I’m wearing one of your car club shirts right now, you had a lot. almost 50 years you were in the sophisticated few. should’ve had mines and Marges shirts remade lmao. we had a big celebration of life for you at your crib, there were a lot of people there for you. wish you could’ve been there. we’re taking good care of your low rider too. I love you, tata. we’ll forever cruise in memory of you.
