Nowhere To Run
Martha Reeves Lyrics


Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide.
It's not love, I'm a running from,
It's the heartbreak I know will come.
'Cause I know you're no good for me, but you've become a part of me.
Ev'rywhere I go, your face I see, ev'ry step I take, you take with me yeah

Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide.
I know you're not good for me, but free of you I'll never be, no.
Each night as I sleep, into my heart you creep.
I wake up feelin' sorry I met you, hoping soon that I'll forget you.
When I look in the mirror to comb my hair
I see your face just a smiling there.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide from you baby,
Got nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide.
I know you're no good for me, but you've become a part of me,
How can I fight a lover, that shouldn't be, when it's so deep,
So deep, deep inside of me
My love reaches so high I can't get over it
It's so wide I can't get around it, no
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide from you baby
Just can't get away from you baby, no matter how I try to

I know you're no good for me, but free of you I'll never be,
Nowhere to run to baby, nowhere to hide, got nowhere to run to baby.

I start Spring Cleaning tomorrow and my stereo is going to get abused with Martha, Aretha, Motown and Northern Soul.( if you are familiar with the Northern Soul Genre) Nothing under 50 years old and I am going to literally shake the house as I clean (unless I blow my speakers, which would be a really bad day) Don't know about my hips being loosened, but I could have very well dislocated them by the end of the day. lol.

If you are not from the UK, have a look at this.

Here is a quick preview.

The best Motown tunes ever. Great lyrics, great orchestration, great musicians, and of course great vocalists.

Geoffrey Jonathan Wilson

Oh yes!

ginny white

the Funks could make Micky Mouse sound good

I've said it before and I'll say it again- I wasn't around in the 1960's but it was a bloody incredible time for music.

Ronnie Bishop

I’m a white kid growing up in the 60s and can you imagine hearing this bunch parallel to the main stream, it was shocking and every genre liked it. Corporations have killed the art of it, just give radio the money and they’ll play anything and do, absolutely no self respect.

Dorian Adriano Lee Braga

So trueeeee

John Bishop

Yes, it was, so much quality stuff.

I was born in 1994 and I love music from the entire 20th century from the 1900s to the 1990s. When it comes to music, I live by the saying, "Variety is the spice of life." I don't have anything against today's music. I mean, I enjoy Bruno Mars and Imagine Dragons. However, I will be honest about one thing. While I like hip hop and rap as much as the next person, I despise music that involves twerking or anything related to such dancing, such as this song for example.

This is fantastic, I love the bass when they go up a notch and also when the singing stops-it’s making great moves underneath, this Motown band were amazing, I agree it just makes you want to move.
