Isley Brothers, The - Why When Love Is Gone Lyrics




Ooh
Your love made a slave of me
But the love you gave you took away from me
Foolishly, I believed in you
What a fool I was, thinking your love was true

Selfishly, you broke my heart (My heart)
You were only fooling from the start (You were only fooling)
Still I have but one regret (Regret)
Although you're gone and I can't forget

Why when the love is gone?
Oh, why does my heart keep holding on?
Why when the love is gone?
Tell me why does my heart keep holding on

Your love was [?] when it started
Darling, why'd you leave me broken hearted?
Why'd you swear to always care
Then you walk away and leave me in despair?

Heartlessly, you told me lies (Me lies)
Planning all the time to say goodbye (Planning all the time)
Still I have but one regret (Regret)
Although love is gone, I can't forget

Why when the love is gone?
Oh, why does my heart keep holding on?
Why when the love is gone?
Tell me why does my heart keep holding on

Ooh
Selflessly, you told me lies (Me lies)
Planning all the time to say goodbye (Planning all the time)
Still I have but one regret (Regret)
Although love is gone, I can't forget

Why when the love is gone?
Tell me why does my heart keep holding on?
Why when the love is gone?
Why does my heart keep holding on
Oh, oh why
Tell me why, oh why
Tell me why, oh why
Oh why my heart...

    I found a lovely unplayed TMG copy in the Helen and Douglas House Children's Hospice shop in the Cowley Rd Oxford about 5 years ago. They were asking 50p I gave them £20 and I still think I got a bargain. Uptempo Motown Northern Soul at it's finest.

    did they really make this song, or is this computer engineered this sounds to good

    Discover Motown, Jingles & More! with Tomovox

    You asked who is on drums- it's either Richard Pistol Allen or Uriel Jones. Either way, they are really pounding out that beat. My favorite thing on this record though is how they have that acid guitar in the mix- it's like producer Ivy Jo Hunter was trying to do a Motown / Rock fusion. I love it!

    Discover Motown, Jingles & More! with Tomovox

    @***** Yep, I grew up in that era and remember those hits, so finding these Ivy Jo productions from the late 60's impressed me. Ivy was pretty far ahead of the game in his production style.
