Since You've Been Gone (Album Version)

Luther Vandross

Baby, baby, sweet baby
There's something that I've just got to say
Baby, baby, sweet baby
You left me hurtin' in a real cold way

Speak your name and I feel a thrill
You said I do, sure thing, and I said I will

I told you to just be true
And give me just a little time
Wait on me, baby
I want you to be all o' mine
I've just been so blue
Since you've been gone
(why'd ya do it, why'd ya have to do it)

Since you've been gone
I've been missin' you
Miss your good love
Miss your kissin' too
What a shame, why'd you do that
Why'd you tip on me?
Come home, bring your love back now
To rescue me, Uh Huh

Baby, baby, sweet baby
(sweet, sweet baby)
I didn't mean to run you away
It was pride on my lips
But not in my heart
To say the things that made you stray

And I mean
Hear me now (hear me)
I don't know what I'm gonna do (hear me)
Gotta get you back somehow (hear me now)

And all I know is if ya
Take me back
Consider me, please
If you walk in that door
I can get you off my knees
And I've just been so blue
Since you've been gone
(why'd ya do it, why'd ya have to do it)
Since you've been gone
(why'd ya do it, why'd ya have to do it)
