Davis Eli "David" Ruffin (January 18, 1941 – June 1, 1991) was an American soul singer and musician most famous for his work as one of the lead singers of the Temptations from 1964 to 1968 (or the group's "Classic Five" period as it was later known). He was the lead voice on such famous songs as "My Girl" and "Ain't Too Proud to Beg." Known for his unique raspy and anguished tenor vocals, Ruffin was ranked as one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine in 2008. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989 for his work with the Temptations. Fellow Motown recording artist Marvin Gaye once said admiringly of Ruffin that, "I heard in [his voice] a strength my own voice lacked." more »

It's not that I don't love you,you know how much I do. And it's not that I've found someone to take the place of you.It's just a fear that builds within me everytime you touch my hand.And a dread that shakes my body,that even I don't understand,so I'm leaving.This time I'm playing it smart.I'm gonna walk away from love before love breaks my heart.

Oh you're clenging to me tighter than you ever have before.I don't understand it.But I know it's gonna take everything I've got to keep walking out the door.But those arms you've got around me will let me go someday.And I'd rather leave you holding on,than pushing me away,so I'm leaving yes I am.This time I'm playing it smart.I'm gonna walk away from love before love breaks my heart.
