i hear a symphony

after their string of number one hits was broken with 'nothing but heartaches'; motown's barry gordy was adamant that they only release chart toppers. his songwriting and production team of holland-dozier-holland changed gears with their hitmaking formula and came up with this more musically adventurous number. the song describes the ecstasy of love rather than the usual heartbreak of their previous hits. it became their sixth number one single.

you've given me a true love
and every day i thank you love
for a feeling that's so new
so inviting, so exciting

whenever you're near
i hear a symphonya tender melody
pulling me closer
closer to your arms

then suddenly, i hear a symphonyooh, your lips are touching mine
a feeling so divine
'till i leave the past behind

i'm lost in a world
made for you and me

whenever you're near
i hear a symphonyplay sweet and tenderly
every time your lips meet mine now baby

baby, baby
you bring much joy within
don't let this feeling end
let it go on and on and on
now baby, baby
those tears that seem my eyes
i cry not for myself
but for those who never felt the joy we felt

whenever you're near
i hear a symphonyeach time you speak to me
i hear a tender rapsody of love now

baby, baby
as you stand holding me
whispering how much you care
a thousand violins fill the air

now baby, baby
don't let this moment end
keep standing close to me
ooh, so close to me, baby, baby
baby, baby
i hear a symphonya tender melody
