    I'm gonna guess that you mean "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher" by the great Jackie Wilson
    (not on Motown). Sam Cooke did a great version too, as did many others I think. Great song.

    Your love, liftin' me higher
    Than I've ever been lifted before
    So keep it up, quench my desire
    And I'll be at your side forevermore

    You know your love (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Keeps on liftin' (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Higher (liftin' me, liftin' me), higher, and higher (higher)
    I said your love (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Keeps on (liftin' me, liftin' me)
    Liftin' me (liftin' me) higher and higher (higher)

    Now once I was downhearted
    Disappointment was my closest friend
    But then you came and he soon departed
    And you know he never showed his face again

    That's why your love (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Keeps on liftin' (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Higher (liftin' me, liftin' me), higher, and higher (higher)
    I said your love (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Keeps on (liftin' me, liftin' me)
    Liftin' me (liftin' me) higher and higher (higher)
    Awww

    I'm so glad I finally found you
    Yes, that one in a million girls
    And I wish my lovin' arms around ya
    Honey, I can stand up and face the world

    Let me tell ya your love (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Keeps on liftin' (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Higher (liftin' me, liftin' me), higher, and higher (higher)
    I said your love (your love keeps liftin' me)
    Keeps on (liftin' me, liftin' me)
    Liftin' me (liftin' me) higher and higher (higher)

    Yeah, it's Jackie Wilson. One of the all time great one chord songs. Right up there with Chain of Fools....
