The one I love Is standing near The one I love Is everywhere I can woo you I can amuse you But there is nothing I can do to make you mine Black cloud, black cloud
The one I love Roosts in the mind Can snap this spell Or increase hell I can chase you And I can catch you But there is nothing I can do to make you mine Black cloud, black cloud Oh, black cloud Oh, black cloud
I play the game Of favorites now I can I must I will I do I can please you Or I can freeze you out But there is nothing I can do to make you mine Black cloud, black cloud, black cloud I can choke myself to please you And I can sink much lower than usual But there's nothing I can do To make you mine

Holland-Dozier-Holland originally wrote "Where Did Our Love Go" with The Marvelettes in mind, but they turned it down. Marvelettes lead singer Gladys Horton sang in a lower key than Diana Ross, so when The Supremes came to record the tune, Ross was forced to sing in a lower, breathier style than she was used to.
