"Distant Lover" as written by Gwendolyn Gordy Fuqua, Sandra Greene and Marvin P Gaye....
Distant lover, lover
(Lover, lover, lover)
So many miles away
Heaven knows that I long for you
Every night, every night
I plan, sometimes I dance
Through the day

Distant lover, lover
(Lover, lover, lover)
You should think about me
And say a prayer for me
Please, please baby
Think about me sometimes
Think about me here
Here in misery
Misery

As I reminisce, oh baby
Through our joyful summer together
The promises we made
All the daily letters
Then, all of the sudden
Everything seemed to explode
Now, I gaze out my window
Sugar, down a lonesome road

Distant lover
(Lover, lover, lover)
Sugar, how can you treat my heart
So mean and cruel
Sugar, sugar
That every moment that I spent with you
I treasure every like it was a precious jewel
(Please) Lord have mercy

Please, come back, baby
Somethin' I wanna say
When you left
You took all of me with you
Do you wanna hear me scream
Please please oh please baby
Come back and hold me, girl

    General CommentI agree with soulfool88_1. this ain't it.

    For the record, Kanye sampled this for one of the songs off of "college dropout" -i'm sure he'd agree too:)
