"Where Did Our Love Go" as written by Edward Holland, Lamont Herbert Dozier and Brian Holland....
Baby, baby, baby don't leave me
Ooh, please don't leave me all by myself
I've got this burning, burning, yearning feelin' inside me
Ooh, deep inside me and it hurts so bad

You came into my heart (baby, baby) so tenderly
With a burning love (baby, baby)
That stings like a bee (baby, baby)
Now that I surrender (baby, baby) so helplessly
You now want to leave (baby, baby)
Ooh, you wanna leave me (baby, baby)
Ooh (baby, baby)

Baby, baby, where did our love go?
Ooh, don't you want me?
Don't you want me no more (baby, baby)?
Ooh, baby

Baby, baby, where did our love go?
And all your promises of a love forevermore!
I've got this burning, burning, yearning feelin' inside me
Ooh, deep inside me, and it hurts so bad

Before you won my heart (baby, baby)
You were a perfect guy
But now that you got me
You wanna leave me behind (baby, baby)
Ooh, baby

Baby, baby, baby don't leave me
Ooh, please don't leave me all by myself (baby, baby)
Ooh baby, baby, baby

    General Commentfunny how the songs written 40 years ago are simpler than songs today, but just as (if not more) poignant. songwriting hasn't advanced in 45 years.

    i like this song because it's more than "i'm so sad we're broken up"--this guy only wants what he can't have. as soon as she falls in love with him, he wants out.
    "But now that I surrender
    So helplessly
    You now wanna leave"

    "Before you won my heart
    You were a perfect guy
    But now that you got me
    You wanna leave me behind"

    General CommentThe song was originally intended for the Motown girl group, The Marvelettes who did not like the song and rejected it. Ironically it was passed on to the Supremes who had not hit song yet and dubbed by their rival girl groups the Marvelettes and the Vandellas as "no hit Supremes". Ironically it was the Supremes who had the last laugh and score first number one hit and went on to surpass all the female and male acts at Motown.
