This is one of the small handful of A-sides led by Eddie Kendricks since David Ruffin (who leads on the bridge and ad-libs on the outro) became the Tempt's lead singer, the last one was the 1966 song "Get Ready". As the song's main narrator, Kendricks tells his girl just how much she really means to him.
Now, I was blessed the day I found you,
Gonna build my whole world around you,
You're everything good girl, and you're all that matters to me
There is real sentiment behind the song's words, as lyricist Penzabene wrote his songs as personal statements to his wife, to let her know how much he cared about. Later he would find out she had been unfaithful to him and publicized his pain in the songs, "I Wish It Would Rain" and "I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You)", to show her how much he was hurt by her. After both of those songs were completed and recorded, Penzabene committed suicide.
