You really got a hold on me – Smokey Robinson & the Miracles

I don’t like you, but I love you
Seems that I’m always thinkin’ of you
Though You treat me badly, I love you madly
You’ve really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)

Baby, I don’t want you, but I need you
Don’t wanna kiss you, but I need to
Though You do me wrong now, my love is strong now
You’ve really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)

Baby, I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Tighter, tighter

I wanna leave you, don’t wanna stay here
Don’t wanna spend another day here
Though I wanna split now, I can’t quit now
You’ve really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)

Baby, I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
(Please, squeeze)

You really got a hold on me
(You really got a hold on me)
I said you really got a hold on me
(I said you really got a hold on me)
You know, you really got a hold on me
(You know, you really got a hold on me)
You know, you really got a hold on me
(You know, you really got a hold on me)

All of that was true. Sadly enough. It had become true throughout our time together. And now that spell is finally broken.

That song’s lyrics, for the first time ever, hit me powerfully while re-listening to this tonight. Had only ever been occasional background music that seemed irrelevant before this night.
