Quicksand Lyrics
QUICKSAND
Martha Reeves and the Vandellas
Written by Holland/Dozier/Holland

Oo-oo ooo ooo who-oooh!
Oo-oo ooo ooo who-oooh!

You're like
Quicksand, quicksand
Pulling me closer, closer
In your arms
Can't resist your loving charms
You're like quicksand sinking me deeper
In love with you

The more I fight it
The deeper in love I get
Each time you hold me
I feel nothing but happiness
It's not safe loving you this way
But from your arms I can't stay

You're like
Quicksand, quicksand, yeah
Pulling me closer, closer
Making me love you
Need you
(Deeper) Sinking me deeper, deeper
In love with you.

MUSIC INTERLUDE

Oo-oo ooo ooo who-ooooh!

(Deeper. Deeper. Deeper!
In love with you.)

My heart is a prisoner
Of your warm embrace
I can't help, can't help myself
Nothing can take your place
When you say sweet things to me
I start trembling from head to feet

You're like
Quicksand, quicksand, yeah
Pulling me closer, closer
A- just can't resist you
A-just want to kiss you

You're like quicksand, yeah!

Oo-oo ooo ooo who-ooooh!

Quicksand, quicksand, yeah
Sinking me deeper
Sinking me deeper
I just can't resist you
I just want to kiss you

Oo-oo ooo ooo who-ooooh!
