A white wooden cross by the side of the road One someone lost that I did not know What would I do? What would I do? If a white wooden cross meant that I'd lost you
I asked myself how would I let go? And a thought appeared like a morning dew And my blood ran cold My blood ran cold As these sad ideas passed through
Tell me no lies Tell me no lies Is it stranger to live? Is it stranger to die?
What would I do? What would I do? If a white wooden cross meant that I'd lost you
Tell me no lies Tell me no lies Is it stranger to live? Is it stranger to be alive?
For all the people that I am not And all their prayers and all their thoughts There's so much more out there Than here where I stand I blow my horn for the whole band

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.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
