Get Ready - The Temptations
“I had loved him so much that he’d become a part of me. I had thought about him daily, and when I saw him it was like that part of my body just recognized him. It called out to him, plead with him to stay, like without him it would cease to work. And now that he was gone, he had taken a piece of me with him.”
She told me that she’d blocked out so much of her life, and that’s why she had room for so much useless information in her head. I, on the other hand, held onto too much, which is why I told her I never felt open to anything new.
Just tell me that you love me
Or tell me that you don’t.
Tell me that I’ll see you someday soon
Or that I won’t.
Tell me that the feelings that you had
Have gone away
Or tell me that you’ll always be here
If I choose to stay.
Tell me that the words you spoke
Were truer that I thought
Or tell me that you’re lying
Just to further tie this knot
Of feelings that exist inside
My head when I’m alone,
Oh tell me that you’re here
For every single time I’m gone.
Just tell me that you’re sorry
And embrace me like you did
Or tell me that I’m nothing to you,
That would do the trick.
Oh young girl, now what did you do
When I told you that we could start over new?
But he broke your heart when you thought he was true
So I guess it’s downhill for me and for you.
Suppose you should know what I always knew
He was a smooth sweet-talker on route
Collecting young hearts all out of the blue
Wish you’d known this before you’d fallen too.
