Once in love
Strong
Now it's long, long gone
Because the pain, pain, pain
I remain all alone
Because I want you

I been thinking bout
I been thinking bout
I been thinking bout you lately
Thoughts take me to when we were close
Addicted 2 your love, feel I need another dose
I know it's a feeling
That should be long gone
Things seem to come up
When I hear our song
Golden brown girl, it seem so long
Since I heard your voice
Where did the king go wrong?
Emotions that that they linger on
I guess cause I never knew a love so strong
So many hot girls
I need your warm
The taste of your mouth
Girl I need your warm
Good food and love
I need your warm
This here was made before we were born
A dreamer, so I'm a keep dreaming on
It's kinda like the breakup of Jen and Vince Vaughn

Once in love
Strong
Now it's long, long gone
Because the pain, pain, pain
I remain all alone
Because I want you

They say you don't know know know 
What you got
Till what u got is gone
Yeah I write such and such yo a lot 
But the feelings not as strong
We were like two birds
That were able to fly
I try to pick the right words to say to the sky
Someday's I would try but wasn't able to cry
I never been good at saying goodbye
I take a deep breath when the times is hard
When I reminisce over u, my god
I spent many years trying to be the heartthrob
I guess it's only right that I got my heart robbed
The scent of a room that reminds me of you
A hint of perfume it remind me of you
Take a look at the moon it remind me of you
Hope the stars and the gods 
Align me and you

Once in love
Strong
Now it's long, long gone
Because the pain, pain, pain
I remain all alone
Because I want you

We do what we do
And we do what we live
I love this way
Cause I got it as a kid
Wit so much to give from it
I never hid
The love that I wrote on the mirror it got smeared
My friends say it was a change for the better
But I say, girl u changed my forever
Relationships they can be as strange as the weather
Rain or sun
We can sang this together
