Earth, Wind & Fire - After the love has gone
Tekst en muziek: David Foster, Jay Graydon en Bill Champlin
(1979)






For awhile, to love was all we could do
We were young and we knew
In our eyes we’re alive
Deep inside we knew our love is true



For awhile, we paid no mind to the past
We knew love would last
Every night, something right
Would invite us to begin the day



Something happened along the way
What used to be happy was sad
Something happened along the way
And yesterday was all we had



And oh
After the love has gone
How could you lead me on
And not let me stay around



Oh, oh, oh
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



For awhile, to love each other with all
We would ever need
Love was strong for so long
Never knew that what was
Wrong, oh, baby, wasn’t right



We tried to find what we had
Till sadness was all we shared
We were scared
This affair would lead our love into



Something happened along the way
Yesterday was all we had
Something happened along the way
What used to be happy is sad
Something happened along the way
Yesterday was all we had



And oh
After the love has gone
How could you lead me on
And not let me stay around



Oh, oh, oh
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, after the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



Oh, oh, oh
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



Oh, oh, oh
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



Oh, oh, oh



Oh, oh, oh
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



Oh, oh, oh
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that’s lost be found



Oh, oh, oh
