The Love We Had
The Dells Lyrics


(Ooh...) I just can't believe it, girl (Baby)
I can't believe that it's over (No, no, no, no)
But I'm your man (Woo...hoo...) and I'll be alright (Yeah, whoa...)
But still, the love we had stays on my mind

Lately baby, I've been thinkin'
How good it was when you were here
And it ain't the wine that I've been drinkin'
For once I feel my head is clear (Ooh, yeah)
But early this mornin', ha, when I opened my eyes, ha
That old lonesome feelin' took me by surprise, ha
I guess you meant more to me than I realized
The love we had stays on my mind (Ooh, stays on my mind)
The love we had stays on my mind
(Oh...oh...whoa...ho...yeah...yeah...oh...yeah...sing it Jazz)

And lately, girl, I've been rememberin'
The good times that we used to share
My thoughts of you don't have an endin'
And the memories of you are everywhere' oh, yeah, oh, yeah

But why should I tell you it's not your concern
You win some, you lose some, but I've lost and I've learned, ha
Sysqo's so lonely with no place to turn, at
And at the end, I find, yes, I do
[The love we had stays on my mind] Woo...whoa...oh...yeah...yeah...yeah...

Girl, if you were nearer (Oh, ba-baby)
If you had a mirror (If you had a mirror)
Maybe you could count my tears (You don't know, you don't know how I tried)
And if you were nearer (Baby)
It would all be clearer (I want you right here nest to me)
How I wish that you were here (Mmm, mmm)
How I wish that you were (Oh, baby) here (How I wish, how I wish)
(How I wish that you were here, I want to let you know, know, yeah...)

And baby girl, I was tired
So I laid down to dream for a little while
But lately I've been so (Ha), so uninspired (Take your time, take your time, take it)
Without the comfort of your smile (Hey, hey, hey, yeah)

But I'm not complainin', huh
'Cause that's how it goes
There's always some heartache
In this world I suppose, huh, just a minute
But you can't imagine
But nobody knows
The love we had stays on my mind
(Nobody knows, baby, that the love stays on my mind)
The love we had stays on my mind (Oh...yes, baby, oh...yes, baby) [Ooh, yes]
(Do you hear me) [Hey]
The love we had (Woo) stays on my mind (Some times I get a little lonely)
The love we had (And I can't eat at night) [I can't eat at night, ha] stays on my mind
(I can't sleep, baby, ha, Lord have mercy) [I can't sleep at night]
The love we had (Woo) stays on my mind (Yeah...yeah...yeah...)
The love we had stays on my mind
(Oh, baby, ooh, just help me, say yeah, yeah) [Yeah, yeah]
The love we had stays on my mind (Say yeah, yeah) [Yeah, yeah]
The love we had stays on my mind (Ooh, say yeah, yeah) [Yeah, yeah]
(Oh, yeah....yeah...hey, hey)
The love we had (Uh) stays on my mind (Baby) [Baby] (All right) [All right] (I said)
The love we had stays on my mind (Whoa...ho...yeah...oh, yeah)
The love we had stays on my mind

LORD JESUS I swear,Marvin Junior's the only cat who's voice has literally brought me to tears, dude that's just a instrument of God

Yes I'm with you on your reply it brings me to tears hearing this song & his blessed voice I'm so glad that i told my wife of 35 yrs that i i loved her on a daily & gave her flowers also because once they pass what good are the words or flowers it's just guilt like a VAPOR

I keep coming back to this version, Marvin Jr just kills it on every note. Great across the group really, what a beautiful, powerful song.

Butch Harlmon

He is singing loud and hard. Straight from the heart

That’s what soul is all about. Very few genres of music will move you the way soul music does.
