  • Keep falling in and out of love
    In search for what I'm dreaming of
    I long to find a love I'm sure about
    That certain kind of love that moves all doubts

    Keep falling in and out of love
    Still searching for that special one
    To whom I can give my love completely
    And feel a lasting love so sweetly

    Just when I feel sure love's here to stay
    It seems to suddenly just fade away
    Can't seem to find that everlasting love
    That this heart of mine needs so much of
    Keep falling in and out of love
    Can't seem to find the lasting kind
    It seems I can't find the joy I need
    Love always somehow all goes wrong for me

    Keep falling in and out of love
    Keep falling in and out of love
    I keep reaching out for tenderness
    Touching a hand that holds emptiness
    Well I'm looking for a love that lingers on
    Long after that first kiss is gone
    That kind of love that keeps burning bright
    Long after we've said goodnight

    Keep falling in and out of love
    In search for what I'm dreaming of
    Keep falling in and out of love Writer/s: Brian Holland, Edward Holland, Lamont Dozier

  • Nathan Zane Jones from Fabulous Northernmost New Jersey"In And Out Of Love" was a superb song. It has a certain Kinetic energy that even today, 2020, it still swings. It is, truly joyous, and I privileged to have been on Ed Sullivan when they sang it live. It is one of the very finest Supreme live recordings to sound as good or better live than on record.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 12th 1968, the Supremes played a trio of nuns on the 48th episode of the NBC-TV action series 'Tarzan'...
    At the time they did not have a song on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; one month earlier on December 24th, 1967 "In and Out of Love" was at #24 and that was its last day on the chart...
    But at the time their album 'The Supremes' Greatest Hits' was at #4 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 19th 1967, the Supremes performed "In and Out of Love" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show"...
    At the time the song was at #29 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and fourteen days later it would peak at #9 {for 2 weeks}...
    {See next post below}.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 5th 1967, "In and Out of Love" by Diana Ross & the Supremes entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #65; and 4 weeks later on December 3rd, 1967 it peaked at #9 {for 2 weeks} and spent 8 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #16 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart...
    The Andantes also performed on the record, this was one of eight Supreme records that they appeared on.
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlEven though this song made it to #9 on the Hot 100, it barely got above #20 on the R and B charts in 1967.
