After the Love Has Gone [Single Version]
by Earth, Wind & Fire



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