Marvin Gaye - You
Listen on Spotify:



You, you I see in my mirror in the morning
Instead of seeing me
I see you, I see your face
And inside me is a growing need for your embrace
In the light of day, though our faces meet
Someone there might see, so we never speak
Till the dark of night, while the moon is new
While we whisper words of love in our secret rendezvous
Though it’s wrong I know, girl I love you so
Yes I need you, I need you baby

Oh you, my sweetest joy
You can afford the best of life
I’m just a hard-working boy
Oh you’ve given your love to me
Girl, I can’t let you hurt yourself by being seen with me
We’re worlds apart, so close yet worlds apart
So we must hide the love we’re feeling in our hearts
We meet in shadows, your friends must never know
That we are lovers, darling
Although it hurts me so, for your sake no one must see
The precious of love you’re giving me
But you know, I need you baby
One day I’ll make the grade, my lucky star will shine
I can tell the world that you are mine, all mine
Till then we must go on the way we have before
And never let it show we love each other so
Our love’s a one-way track because there’s no turning back
Oh I need you baby
