“I Wish I Didn’t Love You So” by Marvin Gaye Lyrics

This is a sweet sorrow
Living for tomorrow

Little girl, don’t you know
I wish I didn’t love you so
My love for you should have faded
A long, a real long time ago
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, I wish I didn’t need your kiss
Tell me, why must your kiss torture me
And drive me crazy like this?
(Do it baby, don’t do it)

I should be smiling by now (I’m gon’ find somebody)
With some new, fine, tender thing (who really, really loves me)
Smiling by now
With my heart on the mend, on the mend

When, when I try, oh yeah, oh (everytime I do)
Something in my heart (I ain’t lying)
Says my life still depends on you
I can’t get you out of my head
I still got to depend on you
I wish, I really wish I didn’t love you so
Oh, don’t you know, baby?

Now I wish, I wish, I wish, oh baby
I wish, I wish, I wish, oh baby
I didn’t love you so much
