Nowhere To Run
Martha and the Vandellas 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.

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

ginny white

the Funks could make Micky Mouse sound good

Miles Jolly

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.

Tresean Cann

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.

I was 😁 👌👊👊

Les Lothringer

I was but it's gone - the experimental spirit, out of the box creative drive and nothing off limits for criticism. Now we have thought-terminating political correctness. Check who's in charge - mostly lawyers, white board economists, accountants and financiers, marketing graduates and public relations professionals. Expect it all to get worse. It saves one from disappointment.

Linda Reynolds

I was, and it was.

Ralph Sorrenti

At 65 I hear this music and I say to myself GOD I was luckly to be alive, when this music first came out. You wil NEVER EVER hear music like this again.
