The Love We Had Stays On My Mind
The Dells Lyrics


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 spinning
But early this mornin', when i opened my eyes,
That old lonesome feelin' took me by surprise
I guess you meant more than i realized
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind
And pretty 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'
But why should i tell you it's not your concern
You win some, you lose some, i've lost and i've learned
Its just that im so lonely with no place to turn
And year after year i find
The love we had stayed on my mind

Girl, if you were nearer
If you had a mirror
Maybe you could count my tears
And if you were nearer
It would all be clearer
How i wish that you were here (mmm, mmm)
How i wish that you were here (how i wish, that you were here)

(How i wish that you were here

And baby girl, i was tired
So i laid down to dream awhile
But lately i've been so uninspired
Without the comfort of your smile
But i'm not complainin'
'Cause that's how it goes
There's always some heartache in this world i suppose
But you can't imagine nobody knows
The love we had stays on my mind
(Stays on my mind)
The love we had stays on my mind
I never will forget you baby
The love we had stays on my mind
Why how can i tell you
Ad lib...

It's just that I'm so lonely with no place to turn
And here at the end I'll find

The love we had stays on my mind

Girl, if you were nearer, if you had a mirror

And if you were nearer, it would all be clearer

And lately I've been so uninspired
Without the comfort of your smile

But I'm not complaining 'cause that's how it goes
There's always some heartaches in this world I suppose
But you can't imagine, nobody knows

The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind

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.

THIS - rips my heart out and stomps on it, leaves me with tears rolling down my face EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
How blessed am I to witness such soul wrenching talent?!??

Totally obsessed with Marvin Junior's sharp baritone voice!

These guys were on another level with the vocals. Reminds me of Blue Magic and The Ebony’s. But obviously these guys were much much more prolific than those groups. The dells are special. More like the Isley brothers in their ability to adapt decade to decade.
