Harteloos

Blindelingse Greep nr. 72 in de RG-Collectie levert Martha & the Vandellas’ Sugar ‘n’spice op. De lp bevat niet het gelijknamige nummer dat nu eens een original van de Searchers. Wel bijvoorbeeld deze single.

Where is my love?
Sweetly we spoke up under the sun (Under the sun)
What have I done to be the one you turn away from? (You turn away from)
Where there was tenderness, there’s only emptiness
What did I do?
Have I been a fool?
Only a tool to use when you want to?
How could love that seemed so strong
Suddenly go so completely wrong?

Completely heartless, heartless
How could love just disappear?
You treat me so heartless, heartless
Yesterday you were here and now here am I left alone
You and the love we shared both are gone
Day is like night (Day is like night)
Nothing is right (Nothing is right)
Life is despair (Life is despair)
It isn’t fair (It isn’t fair)

You treat me heartless, heartless
Don’t let it end this way
Your love is life to me but it’s plain to see
(Heartless, heartless)
You just want to play
First you lead me on ‘till the need is gone
And I’m no longer fun
And I’m put away until a rainy day
When you need someone
My love for you outweighs my pride
Your love’s a shell with nothing inside (Nothing inside)
It’s empty and heartless, so heartless
What could it be you say you feel when you’re so heartless, heartless
How could your love be so for real
When here am I left alone
You and the love we shared both are gone
Day is like night (Day is like night)
Nothing is right (Nothing is right)
Life is despair (Life is despair)
It isn’t fair (It isn’t fair)

You treat me so heartless, heartless
What could it be you say you feel? (Heartless, heartless)
You treat me so heartless, you’re so heartless (Heartless, heartless)
How could your love be so for real


Heartless, 1969
