Lately.

Lately.

You’re gone forever, but it’s only a month and a half,
Your absence lets sadness overcome my laugh,
I sit alone and look at your photograph,
Can’t take it anymore, I know that I’m going to crack,

O', what’s been going on with you, lately,
I’ve been sad and blue, lately,
Maybe I’m wrong, baby, I can’t be strong,
‘Cos you’ve been gone too damn long, yeah, lately,

You finally wrote me a note and you called it a letter,
Words like hello, goodbye, I love ya, don’t make it better,
They just add to the pool of tears that just makes my life wetter,
I’m not getting calmer, I just keep getting upsetter,

O', what’s been going on with you, lately,
I’ve been sad and blue, lately,
Maybe I’m wrong, baby, I can’t be strong,
‘Cos you’ve been gone too damn long, yeah, lately,

Baby, when are you coming home,
I’m sick and tired of living alone,
Even if it’s with a crowd,
You said that you’d be home someday,
I told them at work to look for you today,
Baby, don’t you know I’m proud,
To have you here with me, now, I’d sing it out loud,

And now, you don’t seem to know what it means,
To be shut off and hid away from your dreams,
Your absence breaks my rhythm like a splash in a stream,
It’s tough to hang on, a lot tougher than it seems,

O' yeah, what’s been going on with you, lately,
I’ve been sad and blue, lately,
Maybe I’m wrong, baby, I can’t be strong,
‘Cos you’ve been gone too damn long, yeah,
What’s been going on with you, lately,
I’ve been sad and blue, lately,
Maybe I’m wrong, baby, I can’t be strong,
‘Cos you’ve been gone too damn long, yeah... lately.
