In My Lonely Room
Martha and the Vandellas Lyrics


Every single time you take me out with you
You always flirt around with someone new
But I never criticize the tearful things you do
'Cause I'm so afraid of losing you

But in my lonely room, tears I don't have to hide
'Cause I just lock my door and let myself go
And lay right down and cry

Every place we go, people are whispering
About your flirting ways, & it hurts me so to hear
But in the public's eye I just push behind all my hurt inside
And pretend i don't mind

But in my lonely room, tears I don't have to hide
In my lonely lonely lonely lonely room
I push my pride aside and lay right down & cry
In my lonely room, in my lonely room
Let myself go, lay right down and cry

This song has a special meaning to me. I love Martha Reeves and The Vandellas. It was such an honor to actually dance on stage with them.

George Stewart

That’s amazing. You’re one lucky man !

Steven Hicks

Everyone younger seems to think all they did was Dancing in the Street. I think this definitely counts as one of the best by Martha and her Vandelas.

Devon Mitchell

Their version came out before Candy and the Kisses

N Smith

THEE Best!

I really don't think Martha ever made a bad record. She's Fab....I love her. BTW Doesn't this sound like "The 81" by Candy & the Kisses ?

One of my favorite Motown songs EVER 🧡

Day-yum, did Motown ever do a bad song? Even overlooked singles like this one are great!

Tim Bogan

I’ve been listening and aching to this song since 1967.
