What You Gave Me
David Ruffin Lyrics


You've given me so much warmth
I don't see how I could ever grow cold
In my mind there's a picture of you and I
That nobody has the price to buy

I don't know what made you change your mind
But you'll be back It's just a matter of time

'Cause what you gave me is more than enough to last
Ooh, baby What you gave me is more than enough to last

Yeah, into my life you came
Like a breath of spring
Giving me a song to sing
Though I know you're leaving
But I won't be grieving

'Cause time has a way of showing us
The things that we really need
And no matter where you go
I know you'll find your way back home
'Cause though I know it's not reality
You'll always be a part of me

'Cause what you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me
What you gave me is more than enough to last

Yes, yes it's more
It's more than enough to last
Yes, yes it's more
It's more than enough to last

What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
