Is There A Place
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics

There he is at my door
I just can't let him in
Because I know that's when
Heartaches will start again

He keeps on knockin' at my door
There he is
He just came back to hurt me some more
I'm tryin' so hard not to hear
Cause I know he don't really care

Maybe this time he'll say
He's gonna see things my way
And he won't ever stray or ever go away
Maybe he'll stay

But I hate to take that chance
There he is
Of opening that door
Because if I see him again
I know my foolish heart will let him win

Baby, this time he'll say
He's gonna see things my way

So I'm gonna push my pride aside
Put on a great big smile
So he won't know
I've been crying all the while

Baby, baby, baby, walk on in
Baby, baby, baby, walk on in
Baby, baby, baby, walk on in

No matter where I am or what I'm doing, whenever this song comes on I get emotional and goosebumps, unfailingly. Can't explain. Great song


Climate change is not helping. I know this song is about love, but the refrain has gotten to be right haunting.


@KittyKat2006 never thought about it like that, you're right though, to be fair you can also say the say about Judgement Day etc., But it's a love song, just listen to it for what it is I think that's best


Yeo. I just get up and dance!

Alan Cunningham

Me too

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

Geoffrey Jonathan Wilson
