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.

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

Walt Gekko

This version should have been released as a single and probably would have been a Top 10 hit had it been in 1969.

James Hayes

@mary ruggiero Agreed

mary ruggiero

i doubt it. David is straining and stretching his voice and his talent in this one. his timing with lyrics is off, and he's hitting the wrong syllable almost every time. it's not a "style", it's cocaine.

Aj Vann

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

Oldchestnut

What a great version

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?

charles robinson

bring back the memories i couldnt forget

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