I won't be neglected
I won't be denied
The pleasure of your kisses
The pleasure of your smile

I think you take for granted
I'll always be here
Just because I'm near you
It doesn't mean I won't disappear

CHORUS
Been so long . . . of missin' you, baby
Been so long . . . of missin' you, baby

Thoughts and mellow memories
Of once upon a time
Slowly creepin' on me
And they linger on my mind

Just let somebody love you
I just don't know why
Whenever I get close to you
You want to run and hide

CHORUS
It's been so long . . . of missin' you, baby
It's been so long . . . of missin' you, baby
It's been so long . . . of missin' you, baby
It's been so long . . . of missin' you, baby

We began lovers' dance
The road was smooth to romance
And we sang love sweet song every day

I believe that love would stay in my heart
Now it's torn all apart
It's gone away, I can't stay, I've got to say
I don`t believe that you could do me this way

Now don't you understand
I'm in need of comfort
The comfort of your hand in mine
And what I feel inside
Why don't you come closer
I can't hide

Been so long
Been so long . . . can't hide
Been so long
Been so long . . . it's too long, won't you come on, baby
Been so long . . . won't you come home, see about me
see about me

Been so long
