Quicksand
Martha Reeves Lyrics


You're like quicksand, quicksand, pulling me closer closer in my arms.
Can't you see, it's your loving charms,
It's like quicksand sinking me deeper in love with you.

The more I find it, the deeper in love I get.
Each time you call me, I feel nothing but happiness.
It's not sane, loving you this way,
But from your heart I can't stay.

You're like quicksand, quicksand, pulling me closer closer
making me love you, need you
It's like sinking me deeper, deeper in love with you.

The more I find it, the deeper in love I get.
Each time you call me, I feel nothing but happiness.
It's not sane, loving you this way,
But from your heart I can't stay.

You're deeper, deeper, deeper in love with you.
My heart is a prisoner of your warm embrace,
I can't help it, I can't help myself.
Nothing can take your place.
Ah, when you say sweet things to me,
I start trembling from head to feet.
You're like quicksand, quicksand,
Yea, pulling me closer, closer.
I just can't resist you,
I just want to kiss you,
You're like quicksand, yea.

This has always been my favorite song by them - even better than heatwave!

Sarah Williams

I like Quicksand better, too.

@Sellyboy 727 yep. The songs were so similar and I loved both - Heatwave just had the best melody, especially the intro! And the hand clapping

Sellyboy 727

@boomerang905 just by a Lil bit lol I love heatwave too

boomerang905

I sure was better! 💃

Highly underrated female group!!! I liked them much better than The Supremes who got more exposure for reasons we know. Timeless music!!!

@freeguy77 Let's keep it real, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas were "singers", the Supremes were not. The Supremes were what we would call "glamour girls" at best.

@Leatherbro 1000 Let's be charitable and just say we love Martha and her Vandellas (whatever that is!) kick-ass songs more than the more subdued Supremes output.

These girls were far more "naturally talented and talent superior" to the Supremes.
