Gaye, Marvin - Your Precious Love Lyrics

Every day there's something new
Honey, to keep me lovin' you
And with every passin' minute
Ah baby, so much joy wrapped up in it

[Tammi:] Heaven must have sent you from above
[Both:] Wo, heaven must have sent your precious love

And I, I've got a song to sing
Tellin' the world about the joy you bring
And you gave me a reason for livin'
And ooo, you taught me, you taught me the meaning of givin'


[M:] To find a love like ours is rare these days
'Cause you've shown me happiness, yes, in so many ways
[T:] I look in the mirror, and I'm glad to see
Laughter in the eyes where tears used to be

[M:] What you've given me I could never return
'Cause there's so much, girl, I have yet to learn
[T:] And I wanna show, I wanna show my appreciation
'Cause when I found you, I found a new inspiration

[Repeat chorus and fade]

    This song gives me chills knowing that this is the song that Tammi collapsed on stage in October 1967 when her & Marvin was performing in VA

  40. Blake Evans

    My grandpa passed away when I was in 2nd grade unfortunately we weren’t very close he lived in California I lived in Indiana he moved to Indiana when I was in 2nd grade and tried to catch up on time before the cancer got him. I went to his house with my dad to help clean up after he passed and I remember seeing a Marvin Gaye greatest hit cds and took it with me. All elementary id listen to this song on the way to work. At first I didn’t like it lol but it was my way of feeling like I could still connect with him. Well fast forward 20 years I’m 25 years old and love this song and every time I hear this song I still feel that connection with my grandpa. Crazy how music can be so timeless and build connections rest easy grandpa and Marvin!!

  50. Daimon Mario Perez

    The greatest duet ever ! Marvin & Tammi sang it like they meant it.... So much joy was wrapped up in it. Heaven must have sent them from above...

  51. C Truth

    Tammi Terrell was beautiful and her voice was just OK. Marvin Gaye was the magic. His duets with Kim Weston are much stronger. Kim was a great singer. Check out Marvin's duets with Aretha, that is outstanding. His duets with Diana are good too. Marvin did a lot of duets able to sing with all types of singers. Male singers today don't do many duets at all.

  52. huescarhuskies

    Just 2 very beautiful people making beautiful music together, are deeply missed RIP xx

  53. Danny Costa

    Imagine the music that would of been made. Thank you 2 for the beautiful songs

  54. Patrick Pearson

    Barbershop 2 brought me here.

  55. Keystone State_Warrior

    Maybe bc she died so young but Tammi, to me, is one of the most underrated female singers ever. We all now what Marvin can do, but her voice was just so soulful and her talent effortless.

  56. Karen Mosley

    I have had this cd played so many times, at home , in the car, brought soooo much joy singing along, with the great vocals. Just love them both. Xx

  57. George Lewko

    Our song Susie. Truly God sent u too me. He also took you to soon. We had 31 years. Not enough. But I’m thankful. A lifetime with you not enough. Michel your loving husband

  58. Sheila Palmer

  96. paula calabrese

    beautiful duet together a pure classic

  97. frdjr252

    Marvin & Tammi made such beautiful duets. There would've been plenty more of them had we not lost Tammi so early. What a tragedy!

  98. Stefen Lowe

    tammi terrelle was beautiful. Diana ross didn't have nothing on. tammi

    C Truth

    But Aretha had a lot over Tammi. Diana was better. Understand, that Tammi had Marvin doing all the lifting for her. That man could sang!! Check out Aretha & Marvin. Then try Marvin & Diana. Next there's Marvin & Kim which are precious.

  99. a century of black music

    james jamerson was heaven sent.
