Let Somebody Love Me
David Ruffin Lyrics

Cold lonely streets and neon signs.
People from behind their blinds
Peek out at me,
All they ever see is a fool in the dark, alone in the park.
Sitting here alone with my heart in my hands,
Trying hard to understand
Why am I here alone on the outside
Looking in at the world of love, love, love?
Please Heaven up above, let somebody love me.
For who am I and where am I heading?
Without a love I′m just hopelessly treading.
Lost and apart,
I'm chained to a heart I refuse to give, I was afraid to live.
Silver and Gold were my security
I′ve traded and so Lord that was good to me
Aww but I can cry and my heart knows I try, I couldn't make it heard
Aww for precious words, let somebody love me

I'll never cry about poverty naw, I′ll be the richest man alive.
You see for with someone to love, I′ll know someone above loves me...
Let somebody love me.

Is it too much to ask, is it to large a task
To send me someone who needs someone too?
She doesn't have.she doesn′t have to be a beauty queen,
Just someone true, oh you know what I mean
Someone that I can depend on when all my dreams are gone, gone, gone
Someone to lean on.Oooh send me somebody to love me.

I'm tired of sitting alone with my heart in my hands
I need someone to love me, ′cause I'm just a lonely man
Alone here in the park...
Oh it couldn′t be too large a task, thats all that I ask.

Oh how David sang this song. It brought tears to my eyes...send someone to love me.

David is one of the all time best, He could reach your soul with his gifted voice and delivery. My guess is that he could do it because he truly knew pain in his life after losing his mother at an early age....the pain in his eyes are evident. RIP David, you are loved so....

You can look everywhere for a voice with more soul than Davids but you will never find it. The man was in a class of his own. Thank God he left us so much material to remember him by.


David Ruffin was truly Marvin Gaye's rival. They were two of the best in not only Motown but in soul music.
