You’re All I Need To Get By

Post placeholder image

A tribute to Motown songwriter, Nick Ashford who passed away yesterday at the age of 70. He wrote hit songs like: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’m Every Woman, Solid As A Rock with his wife Valerie Simpson.
He also wrote one of my favourite all time songs: You’re All I Need To Get By sung in the video below by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell!

The full lyrics:

You’re all I need to get by.
Like the sweet morning dew,
I took one look at you,
And it was plain to see,
you were my destiny.
With my arms open wide,
I threw away my pride
I’ll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life to you
I will go where you lead
Always there in time of need
And when I lose my will
You’ll be there to push me up the hill
There’s no, no looking back for us
We got love sure ‘nough, that’s enough
You’re all, You’re All I need to get by.

You’re all I need to get by.
Like an eagle protects his nest, for you I’ll do my best,
Stand by you like a tree, dare anybody to try and move me
Darling in you I found
Strength where I was torn down
Don’t know what’s in store but together we can open any door
Just to do what’s good for you and inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a man out of a soul that didn’t have a goal
Cause we, we got the right foundation and with love and determination

You’re all, you’re all I want to strive for and do a little more
You’re all, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one
You’re all, You’re all I need to get by.

Absolutely beautiful!
