Take Me In Your Arms
Kim Weston Lyrics

I know you're leavin' me behind
I'm seein' you, darlin', for the very last time
Show a little tenderness before you go
Please let me feel your embrace once more

Take me in your arms and rock me; rock me a little while
We all must feel heartache sometimes
Right now, right now I'm feelin' mine

I've tried my best to be strong, but I'm not able
I'm like a helpless child left in a cradle
Before you leave me behind, let me feel happy one more time

I'm losin' you and my happiness
My life is do dark I must confess
I'll never, never see your smiling face no more
I'll never, never hear your knock upon my door
Before you leave me, leave me behind
Let me feel happy one more time

I just now thought about this record when I was sitting watching TV. probably been over 50 years since I've heard it, and it sounds just as good today! this is what good music is all about!

Raynard Abraham

I think that this song should have been a much bigger hit on the Pop charts.

Joshua Clabeaux

Wonderful! As a wise music historian once said, "it's very important to have the original on hand to know just how many liberties were taken later". I've gotta say, though, the covers seem to stay pretty close to this - REALLY close!

Chris Embry

God bless Kim Weston and the Funk Brothers.It don't get no better.

B Anderson

It gets much better than this, trust me!

Stephanie Newbern

Love this! Had no idea this was the original version. Always thought Doobie Brothers sang it first. Both versions are great. Holland-Dozier-Holland are songwriting gods!

BaraKuda Warrior

They weren't born yet! They made it after her.

Know Bodies Full

There was also a version by The Isley Brothers (Tamla #54164, 1968).

Kayanda Eddings

Tarantulisimo you forgot a group who recorded it just like kim Westin. The Isley brothers had the song as well.


Actually Eddie Holland himself recorded it first, then gave it to Kim Weston the following year. Like most Motown singles, there are most likely unreleased versions in the vault by The Supremes, Martha Reeves, The Four Tops, & Marvin Gaye....
