From their 1974 album “1990”. Heavenly was caught in the center of a disc jockey boycott against Motown after executives at the label did not thank the United States’ DJs while accepting an award at the 1974 AMA’s. As a result, the DJs refused to play “Heavenly”, and all things Motown, causing it to stall in the pop-charts rankings. Members: Richard Street, Damon Harris, Dennis Edwards, Melvin Franklin, and Otis Williams. Produced and composed by Norman Whitfield. Instrumentation by : The Funk Brothers, and Rose Royce.

Lyrics:

So you’re through with love
And you say
It’ just a waste of time

(Waste of time
you blew your mind)

There are two sides to love
And if you will
I’d like to show you mine

Girl
Love has it’s ups and downs
It’s sometimes like a merry-go-round
Going ’round, and around, and around, and around
Never knowing where you’re bound

I may not be the one you want
But I’m sure the one you need

Girl
Give me a chance to prove
Love shared by me and you can be

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

That’s how

(That’s how love is
when it’s right it’s right)

Simply

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

That’s how

(That’s how love is
when it’s right)

Hey girl
Be fair to your heart
Don’t turn your back on love

(Don’t turn your back on love)

No, no

Cause love is the one thing
Everybody needs

(Everybody needs love)

Hey girl
Open up your heart again
Please won’t you let me in
Give me a chance to undo
All the hurt he’s put you through

I may not be the one you want
But I’m sure the one you need

Girl
Give me a chance and you’ll see
Sharing your love with me will be

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

That’s how

(That’s how love is
when it’s right it’s right)

I know, I know it’s gonna be

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

(That’s how love is
when it’s right it’s right)

Ooohh girl

{music}

Hey girl
Give love another try

or love can pass you by

Love can be

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

Hey girl

(That’s how love is
when it’s right it’s right)

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

Hey girl

(That’s how love is
when it’s right it’s right)

Love between you and me can be

Heavenly/ Heavenly/ Heavenly

Hey girl

(That’s how love is
when it’s right it’s right)
