    "Distant Lover" Lyrics

    Marvin Gaye feat. Betty Wright

    You know, when you're in love and your lover leaves you
    And you've got nobody, the lonely hours over here
    Sittin' home and thinkin', you say:

    Distant lover, darlin', ooo hoo hoo
    So many miles away, ooo please
    Oh please, baby, think about me
    Hey, in misery
    Oh say, baby, as I reminisce about your life
    That we shared together
    The promises we made, baby
    Of the day you left, child

    Then all of a sudden, if it may seem to explode
    Now I gaze out my window, sugar, down a lonesome road, ooo

    Distant lover, ooo, sugar
    How can you treat my heart so mean and cruel
    Didn't you know, sugar, that I dream
    Of what I spent with you
    I treasure it like it was a precious jewel, oh baby
    Lord have mercy!

    Oh baby, don't go
    Please come back, baby
    Ooo, something I wanna say
    When you left to go away
    No 'ther do I want, do you wanna have me plead and scream
    Please! Please, oh please baby
    Come back home, girl
    Oh baby, come back
    Oh oh
