Barbara LYNN – Until Then I’ll Suffer 1996


Something told me it was over
When I saw you and her talking.
Something deep down in my soul said cry girl,
When I saw you and that girl walking.

I would rather,
I would rather go blind, boy,
Than to see you walk away from me, child.
So you see, I love you so much
That I don’t wanna watch you leave me, baby.
Most of all I just don’t,
I just don’t want to be free, no.

I was just, I was just,
I was just sitting here thinking
Of your kiss and your warm embrace,
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips, baby
Revealed the tears that was on my face.

Baby, Baby, I’d rather be blind, boy,
Than to see you walk away from me.
These are new recordings by one of Soul’s most under-rated and understated voices. She re-visits some of her own hits, as well as doing heart-breaking versions of tracks like Brenton Wood’s “I Like the Way You Love Me” and the Marvelettes’ “Forever”, but the standout cut must be her take on “Somebody Please.” Her voice has a depth and maturity now that cuts straight to the heart.
