Just To Keep You Satisfied

Just To Keep You Satisfied

Marvin Gaye

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
Oh darlin'
How did we end up like this?
Oh baby let me reminisce
(Ooh baby) And when we
Ooh, we stop 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 yor side
Though the many happy times we had
Can really never outweigh the bad
Oh, I never loved nobody
Like I love you, baby
Now it's time for us to say farewell
Farewell my darlin'
Maybe we'll meet down the line
(Ooh baby) 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
Oh, we tried
God knows we tried
Now it's too late
To live and learn
Oh, it's too late, baby
It's too late for you and me
Much too late for you to cry
Oh
It's much too late

Talking:

Oh, well
All we can do is we can both try to be happy
