Martha Reeves & The Vandellas – I Promise To Wait lyrics

I promise to wait, my love
Right here til you return
With a love that's weak for you
And a heart that sadly yearns

Yearn because you've left me
All alone and blue
And to another
I know I can't be true

I know that you'll come back home
But hurry up, don't take so long
Cause I love you, need you
Even though you've done me wrong

I promise to wait, my love
Until you finally find
The love you're sharing now
Is not as real as mine

Her love is like a diamond
Only worth a dime
But my love for you
Is strictly genuine

I know that you'll come back home
But hurry up, don't take so long
Cause I love you, need you
Even though you've done me wrong

Ooh, how I miss you
I long to hear you call my name
And since you've been gone, baby
You don't think this ain't
Been the same, no

I, I promise to wait, my love
Right here til you return
With arms that hold you, baby
And lips that forever burn

I cry for your
Tender everloving kiss
And your tight embrace
Is what I really miss

I know that you'll come back home
But hurry up, don't take so long
Cause I love you, need you
Even though you've done me wrong

Gonna stay right here, baby
Ain't going away
I'm gonna wait for you, baby
I, I'm gonna wait for you, baby
