"Pledging My Love / The Clock" lyrics - ARETHA FRANKLIN

"Pledging My Love / The Clock"

Forever, my darling, our love will be true
Always and forever I'll love only you
Just promise me, darling, your love in return
May this fire in my soul dear forever burn

My heart's at your command, dear, to keep love and to hold
Making you happy is my desire, keeping you is everything of my goal
And I'll forever, ever, ever love you the rest of my days
I'm not gonna, not gonna part from you on your loving ways

I looked at the face of the clock on the wall
But it doesn't tell me, it takes time but it doesn't tell me nothing at all
Face of the clock just stares at me, yeah
It knows I'm lonely, how I am, and how I always will be

I want to cry, cry my heart out
I want my baby back with me
There's nothing but time to give out
Time doesn't mean anything to me

Oh, if you hear me, come on back real soon, baby
Because this clock and I, oh, yeah, we're so lonely in this room

Oh, lonely, lonely, lonely in this room
When I get at night, baby, so lonely in this room
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, so lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely in this room
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
