After The Love Is Gone Lyrics

by Kurt Elling

For a while to love was all we could do
We were young and we knew
And our eyes were alive
Deep inside we knew our love was true

For a while we paid no mind to the past
We knew love would last
Every night something right
Would invite us to begin the dance

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

After the love has gone
How can you lead me on?
And not let me stay around
And oh, ooh, ooh

After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found?

For a while to love each other was all
We would ever need
Love was strong for so long

We never knew that what was wrong wasn't right
We tried to find just what we had
Till sadness was all we shared
We were scared of what this affair would lead our love into

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

And oh, after the love has gone
How can you lead me on
And not let me stay around
And oh, oh, oh

After the love is gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found?
And oh, oh, oh

After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found?
Oh, can love that's lost be found?

Be found
