"Oh Well" as written by Michael S Mc Cary, James Samuel Harris Iii, Terry Lewis, Shawn Patrick Stockman, Nathan B Morris and Wanya Jermaine Morris....
Since you've been gone I've been lonely
Longing to be with you only
Maybe there still is a way
I could find you and say just how I feel

Oh, oh
I can't believe that it's over
Wish somehow I could have showed her
All that was inside my heart
‘Stead of playin' the games, you might have stayed
(Yeah, yeah)

Funny just the other night
I was thinkin'
And wondered if you ever think
About me
I call you on the phone
There's no answer

Oh, well
There's still tomorrow
Oh, well
I'll try again
Oh, well
Maybe, just maybe

Since you've been gone I've been lonely
Longing to be with you only
If there's a way I could beg you to stay
Would you please stay with me

I was thinkin' maybe I
Could come over
Hoping we could find a way
Work this out
Even if tonight we don't
Don't find an answer

Oh, well
There's still tomorrow
Oh, well
I'll try again
Oh, well
Maybe, just maybe

Woo, well

If I had another chance
We would stand hand in hand
You'd be my girl and I'd be your man
Oh, well
Maybe, just maybe we can

I still call you on the phone
Still no answer Baby, you don't want to try
One more time
Or am I just a fool
To keep tryin'

Oh, well
There's still tomorrow
Oh, well
A fool's what I am
Oh, well
Maybe, just maybe

Oh well
There's still tomorrow
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, well
Maybe, just maybe
See, if I got down on my knees
And give you every little part of me

Oh, well (Oh, well)
There's still tomorrow
Oh, well (Oh, well)
I'll try again
Oh, well (I'll take you and I'll hold you)
Maybe, just maybe (Just maybe)

Since you've been gone I've been lonely

    General CommentThis is one of their best songs. It expresses human emotion at its most rawest form.

    This song is about love,regret and ultimately longing for something that will never be.

    Its about a relationship that ended. The man in the song realizes he didn't appreciate his girl the way he should have and he didn't show her how much he really loved her while they were together. Once he finally did realize it she was gone and its too late. She's moved on and things won't be the same.

    At times he is almost desperate in that he doesn't care if they work things out that night, he just wants to be in her presence and comfort.

    Whats sad about this song is that I feel the man truly knows they will never be together again but he can't let go of her . He can't imagine his life without her because its too much for him to take in. The lyrics "theres still tommorrow", "I'll try again" "maybe just maybe", helps him cope with the loss.

    At the end, if you really listen the singer sighs. Which captures the essence of his feelings and loneliness.

    This is one of their best songs ever. And we all know Boyz II Men have amazing songs.
