Earth, Wind And Fire - After The Love Has Gone Lyrics




For awhile 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 awhile we paid no mind to the past
we knew love would last
Ev'ry night somethin' right
would invite us to begin the dance

Somethin' happened along the way
what used to be happy was sad
Somethin' 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 afterthe 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
Somethin' happened along the way
yesterday was all we had
Somethin' happened along the way
what used to be happy is sad

Somethin' happened along the way
oh 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 woh woh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found

Oh woh woh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found
Oh woh woh
Oh woh woh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found

Woh woh woh after the love has gone
what used to be right is wrong
Can love that's lost be found
Woh woh woh

  3. Melanin Diosa

  4. Stacey Bueoy

    How Lucky are we as mere mortals to have lived and shared the Earth with such an ephemeral, otherworldly, supernaturally spiritual being as Maurice White! R.I.P Good Sir!

  5. justin wu

  9. Michael Weigel

    The first time I heard this song was on WKRP in Cincinnati. Bailey was sadly walking the halls of the station looking for Johnny Fever. Every time I hear this song I have that picture in my mind.

  13. Daniel Shumway

    One last comment, I love playing along with this on my keyboard, what sweet harmonies and melody , Bob Y , where r u to play along on your genius guitar my dear friend??

  14. Daniel Shumway

    Why did God give me so many true loves? And "something happened along the way" in every case. Elizabeth, Beth, Mandy, Linda, Graves, Jenny, Suzanne, Maggie..."What was wrong, true sadness was all he had" eventually....*crying my eyes out*

  15. Daniel Shumway

    Gotta say something more, dear Mandy, I truly, honestly, wanted you forever, you beautiful, talented, brilliant creature!! That was my youth, and then, it was you, you, you Maggie whom I found on a worldwide search, and then lost through my human weakness, yet, you, God will give me in the eternities....

  16. Daniel Shumway

    Never a better song about that one that got away...Thank you David Foster my favorite pop song composer the last 40 years...

  17. Well Dweller

    A great one, love is mysterious
    only thing permanent is impermanence
    And "what used to be"?

    Also, the harmony how they sing, may be on another level than the beatles.

  18. Marisa Di Nisio

    Simply the best....I love this song....

  19. Dana Hopkins

    One of the best slow dance songs ever!

    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 ?

    1979 Que época maravilhosa meu Deus! Eu ainda novinho, com apenas 4 anos de idade. Apesar de me lembrar bem pouca coisa desse ano, mesmo assim eu sinto muitas saudades dessa época, onde morava numa casinha de tabuas e adorava ver e contar estrelas no ceu ao anoitecer. Isso é algumas das pouquissimas lembranças que guardo desse ano espetacular onde via a minha vida como uma grande diversão. Infelizmente esse ano glorioso não volta mais, então essa música deliciosa me faz relembrar esse tempo lindo, meus inesqueciveis 4 aninhos. Quanta saudade desse ano maravilhoso de 1979 que ficou marcado por esse grande sucesso dessa banda espetacular.
