One More Heartache Lyrics

by Marvin Gaye

One more heartache, I can't take it
My heart is carryin' such a heavy load
One more ache would break it

Just like the camel with the heavy back
One last straw was added
Said it broke the camel's back

Babe I can't take it, one more heartache
It would turn me right around
First you build my hopes up high
And then you let me down

Like the house you built from toothpicks
Stacked upon the kitchen table
One more toothpick tore it down
The foundation was not able

I can't stand it, no baby, believe me
One more heartache
One more heartache

One more heartache is too much load
I'm fed up with the heartaches
One more and I will explode

Like the toy balloon that's filled
With as much air as it can take
One more puff of air
And that balloon has got to break

I can't stand it, I can't take it
Oh baby don't do it
Oh honey
