"Gone Too Long" as written by and Lamont Dozier Jorgen Elofsson....
You said you'd never love another
Sweet words, empty promises
You swore you'd always be my lover
Look close, look into my eyes
You will realize

My heart just ain't for hire
Times change, a new day dawned
I ain't got time for your whim and desire
Look close, look into my eyes
You will realize

You want my love but there's nothing on
I wanna give but the feeling's gone
We used to be right, baby don't take it wrong
But you've been gone, gone, gone
Gone too long

While you were away
Things got turned around
I found somebody who won't bring me down
No, never again
No, look into my eyes you will realize

You want my love but there's nothing on
I wanna give but the feeling's gone
We used to be right, baby don't take it wrong
But you've been gone, gone, gone
Gone too long, gone too long

Oh, I learned to smile again
Oh, I learned to laugh again
Oh, baby everything's changed
For better, I got it together

You want my love but there's nothing on
I wanna give but the feeling's gone
We used to be right, baby don't take it wrong
But you've been gone, gone, gone
Gone too long

You want my love but there's nothing on
I wanna give but the feeling's gone
We used to be right, baby don't take it wrong
But you've been gone, gone, gone
Gone too long
