​Agony And The Ecstasy

This song is by Barbara Mason and appears on the album Another Man (1984).

This song is a cover of "The Agony And The Ecstasy" by ​Smokey Robinson.
You know, sometimes in life
You run into situations where you have to pay a price
For the spices of your life
I remember being involved with a guy by the name of Cesar
Who had another situation going on and
One night while we were making love he said to me

Baby
The agony and the ecstasy
The agony and the ecstasy

What's it all about this crazy love
How did our two worlds entwine?
How do I fit into your life
How did you get into mine?
I belong to someone else we know

Back when first we met
We thought for fun one night together might be nice
But fun turned into love for both of us
So now we pay forbidden lover's price

Hey, love like ours is never ever free
You pay some agony for the ecstasy
Love like ours is never ever free
You got to pay some agony if you want a little ecstasy

Nights when you're alone
You know that I laid with someone else beside me
But you love me still and I love you
You know I would no matter where I'd be

Hey, but love like ours is never ever free
You got to pay some agony if you want a little ecstasy
Love like ours is never ever free
You pay some agony for the ecstasy

Agony, yeah baby, if you want the ecstasy
Listen, baby
And I'm willin' to pay the price
'Cause we need each other desperately
Don't we Cesar
Ahd I'll make every sacrifice
And I'll never from you be free
Because you'll have to do the leaving, leaving, leaving me
