Ruler of my heart, father of my soul
where can you be, I wait patiently
my heart cries out, the pain inside
where can you be, I wait patiently

  • heard it on the wire
  • Love it. Big tune
  • The real deal. Played high-school dances here. Responsible for more " who your baby's daddy" than anyone else....
  • Beautiful woman with a beautiful voice, love this track.
  • FAV check out otis redding - pain in my heart
