Everlasting Love
David Ruffin Lyrics


Hearts go astray, leaving hurt when they go.
I went away just when you needed me so.
Filled with regret I come back beggin' you,
Forgive, forget. Where's the love we once knew?
Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love.
Need you by my side, girl you'll be my bride.
You'll never be denied everlasting love.
From the very start, open up your heart,
Be a lasting part of everlasting love.
Real love will last forever.

Ooh, ooh.
Where life's river flows, no one really knows
'til someone's there to show the way to lasting love.
Like the sun that shines, endlessly it shine,
You always will be mine. It's everlasting love.
When other loves are gone, ours will still be strong,
We have our very own everlasting love.
Real love will last forever.
You give me, you give me, you give me everlasting love

Ooh.
Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love.
Need you by my side, girl you'll be my bride.
You'll never be denied everlasting love.
From the very start, open up your heart,
Be a lasting part of everlasting love.
Real love will last forever.

Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love.
Need you by my side, girl you'll be my bride.
You'll never be denied everlasting love.

Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love.
Need you by my side, girl you'll be my bride.
You'll never be denied everlasting love.

Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love.
Need you by my side, girl you'll be my bride.
You'll never be denied everlasting love.

WOW I Love His Voice he could sing anything, anytime, anywhere!!! Miss You David Ruffin, R.I.P.

Richard Scott

The best ...of all the Ruffin Songs...He sings with Power and Authority...This is Ruthless Begging and Pleading song to a Woman...who has rejected him in someway..This is a Mans Song...It is very very very very powerful from beginning to the The Background Vocals and The Band and Producers Are at Their Very Very Best

I wish there was a live video of David singing this song.

Al Wolpert

One of the MOST Motown-ish tunes ever to NOT come out of the Motown machine, so how could a master like David NOT have covered it with his own magnificent personal spin?

Norma J.

Love this version, thanks for sharing.

Mauro Barbosa

Joseph Ozen

Id have to say David Ruffin is my favourite singer, one of the absolute very best but i think Love Affairs version is better

Aj Vann

Y'all don't know music David killed this song...... the best!!!

sdovas

Absolute Ruffin distinctiveness. Takes a great song and makes it very much his own. Rasp on into infinity, David.
