About Please Return Your Love to Me

"Please Return Your Love to Me" is a 1968 hit single by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. Produced by Norman Whitfield, who co-wrote the song with Barrett Strong and Barbara Neely, it is the last single to feature David Ruffin in the lineup (he is featured in the background). With Eddie Kendricks singing lead (his first as a solo lead vocalist since 1966's "Get Ready"), it peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop charts in the Top 30 at number 26, and number 4 on the Billboard R&B Singles charts. The b-side, "How Can I Forget", is led by Paul Williams and was allegedly one of the earliest songs recorded by the group after Ruffin's departure. Though "How Can I Forget" was also covered by Marvin Gaye, the Temptations' original did not appear on any album or compilation until 1994's Emperors of Soul box set.

Please return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done

And, oh, baby
I cry myself to sleep at night
For fear of a-never holdin' you tight at all, baby (whoa, baby)
I miss ya more with each passin' day
Every night on my knees I pray
Please

Return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
For I am just a lonely boy

I'm sorry for the wrong I've done
Now I know how it feels to lose that special someone (whoa, baby)
I need you more than words can say
Without your love I can't face another day
Oh, (please)

Return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
I am just a lonely one

What I want you know is that if there's a heav'n above you'll be my one and only love (and, oh, baby)
I can't control this glow in me
Girl, come on and an' see about me

(Oh, please)
Return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
I am just a lonely one

I'm a lonely one
I'm a lonely one
I'm a lonely one
I'm just a lonely one
(I am just a)

Please, return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
I am just a lonely one
