Gaye, Marvin - Just To Keep You Satisfied Lyrics

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 really never outweigh the bad
Oh I'll never love nobody like I loved you baby

Now 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

    Inspired a foolish young man to sit on a bus in New York City and write a song entitled Desire, sung by the great Raheem Devaugh. She was my living breathing heart before my eyes, removed from my chest and standing in front of me. I willed myself over to her and spoke. Before I was finished I had left an indelible impression on her. Desire had won the day...

This is also for you that will experience a heartbreak in the future. Love your better half and do whatever it takes to stay together. Lord knows we did not. 😥❤

  90. The Mongoose 23

    1 of the best.

  91. UNC

    Sometimes I feel really embarrassed because of the richness of my musical era. It’s because today’s generation has nothing and they know it! They are the first generation that knows that their generation sucks compared to previous generations. The first generation that has nothing to boast about. So I now keep silent about our rich musical past and the times that created it when I’m in front of them. Because they get the Millennial sad face. America has never been like this! Never in its history.

    Ronald Hawkins


    Del Scott

    I agree

    K. B.

    UNC facts bro. I hear the music my friends and associates listen to and be like wtf are you listening to? Now, to be fair, this technology IS cool and convenient, but you are right about people becoming mindless zombies with it. Shoot, look at the IG Models crying about the like button going away. That’s just one example of people not being able to function without it and the fact that this technology and flexing and money and etc literally defines people. Take it away and then what? Nothing. It’s sickening, but if I guess the only solution is to stay true to your self and don’t fall into the “trap” of this generation

    joel maqueira

    A lot of young people love this music!

    Nayvadius Wilburn

    It’s sad that you’re generalizing the millennial generation. I’m born in the early 2000s and have developed great affection for 60s and 70’s soul music, while on the other hand I dislike most of today’s artists.
