Quicksand
Martha and the Vandellas 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.

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

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

Back in the day , and I’m 66 too. My twin brother actually bought this 45 , it was produced on cardboard! Yes ! We would play this to death until the needle wore a hole right through it. Dancing in the kitchen!!!
