“Take This Heart Of Mine” by Marvin Gaye Lyrics

Ooh, every day there’s something new (oh, baby)
Honey, to keep me lovin’ you (oh, honey)
And with every passin’ minute (oh, true love)
Oh baby, so much joy wrapped up in it

Oh, heaven must have sent you from above
Oh, heaven must have sent your precious love (oh)

And I, I’ve got a song to sing (oh, darling)
Tellin’ the world about the joy you bring (oh, sweet heart)
And you gave me a reason for livin’ (oh, honey)
And ooh, you taught me, you taught me the meaning of givin’

Oh, heaven must have sent you from above
Oh, heaven must have sent your precious love (oh)

To find a love like ours is rare these days
‘Cause you’ve shown me what happiness is in so many ways
I look in the mirror, and I’m glad to see
Laughter in the eyes where tears used to be

What you’ve given me I could never return (oh, baby)
‘Cause there’s so much, girl, I’ve yet to learn (oh, honey)
And I wanna show, I wanna show my appreciation (oh, sweet heart)
‘Cause when I found you, I found a new inspiration

Oh, heaven must have sent you from above
Oh, heaven must have sent your precious love (oh)
Oh, heaven must have sent you from above
Oh, heaven must have sent your precious love
