Love
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics


Love, love, love makes me do foolish things
Sit alone by the phone, a phone that never rings
Hoping to hear you say you love me still
Knowing you never will
Love, love, love has made a fool of me
Got me doin' things, things that shouldn't be
Listening for the sound of your knock on my door
Knowing that sweet sound will be no more

Funny how precious memories linger on
So long after you've gone
Oh precious memories that only make me cry
But I keep holdin' on, oh why do I? Oh, because...

Love, love, love makes me do these things
Speak your name softly each night, or holding your picture tight
When you took my heart, you took my soul
& it's far beyond control

Funny how precious memories linger on
So long after you've gone
Oh precious memories that only make me cry
But I keep holdin' on, oh why do I? Oh, because...

Love, love, love makes me do these things
Love, love, love sadness it brings

Joycelyn Bellamy

They were my idols. Two of my friends andi sang All their songs in the talent shows at Keefe Avenue school Milwaukee.

Lisa Foy

This is a true gem. One of their best. I think about all my family we used to visit with in DC. We all would sit around the record player and play the 45 to death. Makes me do these things.

There is so much truth in this song , that many , choose to not show , as they do not want to be "vulnerable" .Β  The honesty in this song is so very touching ... and Martha hits the emotion perfectly .

Bill Herald

This was a huge hit in San Diego, and it actually topped the charts on San Diego's top-rated station (KCBQ) on Jan. 9, 1966. The song only made it to No. 70 on Billboard as the flip side of the No. 26 hit ("You've Been In Love Too Long") for the Detroit girl group headed by Martha Reeves.

Ronnie Damnitz

The 2 songs split sales and airplay hence the #70 position you've been in love to long #36

Bill Herald shut up! Only 70? Highway robbery, that’s for sure. It was a hit in LA too.

Briana Gutierrez
