lyrics

Damn you look good
How'd I let that get away?
Well I'm not gonna make the same mistake twice
So um, let's do this now
Gone gone gone gone gone gone gone...

Why oh why do we let love go by, my heart cries
Out for light and understanding
The right vibe and you know it and the right size
Mmm like I like 'em, tall, dark, and fine

I waited for so long for you to come along
Then I sent you away, said I needed time to play
They say all is fair in love
But I miss you, babe
Since you been gone
Since you been gonе

I've been waiting for someone likе you to appear
I've been waiting for what feels like a hundred years
Ooh baby since you been gone
Since you been gone
No one's in it with such gentleness and finesse
No one's giving such sweet loving and tenderness
Since you been gone
You never know what you've got until it's gone
And those that are lucky have second chances
Don't let it go again
Hold him tight keep the loving coming do him right
Girlfriend just talk to him he's more than your lover
He's your friend
I waited for so long for you to come along
Then I sent you away said I needed time to play
They say all is fair in love
But l miss you baby
Since you been gone
Since you been gone

I've been waiting for someone like you to appear
I've been waiting for what feels like a hundred years
Ooh baby since you been gone
Since you been gone
No one's in it with such gentleness and finesse
No one's giving such sweet loving and tenderness
Since you been gone
Guess I can admit I went through a crazy phase
But I thought I needed a little lime and space
Oh oh baby since you been gone
I just lay awake crying all through the night
'cause no other can enter this heart of mine like you do
Since you been gone
Gone.. gone... gone.. gone..
Since you been gone
I've been waiting for someone like you to appear
I've been waiting for what feels like a hundred years
Ooh baby since you been gone
Since you been gone
Guess I can admit I went through a crazy phase
But I thought I needed a little time and space
Ooh baby since you been gone
I just lay awake crying all through the night
'Cause no other can enter this heart of mine like you did
Since you been gone
