​(Sweet, Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone

This song is by Gary Puckett & The Union Gap and appears on the album Young Girl (1968).

Baby, baby, sweet baby
There's just something that I got to say
Baby, baby, sweet baby
You left me hurting in a real cold way

And I speak your name
I feel a thrill
You said I do
And I said I will

I tell you to love me, too
And give me just a little time
Wait on me, baby
I want you to be on my mind
I just feel so blue

Since you've been gone (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)
Mmm, since you've been gone (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)

Baby, baby, sweet baby (sweet, sweet)
I didn't mean to run you away (sweet, sweet)
It was pride on my lips
But not in my heart (sweet, sweet)
To say the things that the angels say (sweet, sweet)
But all day
Hear me now (hear me)
I don't know what I'm doing (hear me)
Got to get you back somehow (hear me now)

I'm crying take me back
Consider me please
If you walk in that door I can get up off my knees
I've just been so blue

Since you've been gone (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)
Yes, and I've been so lonely (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)
Since you've been gone (sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet baby)
Don't you know me? (sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet baby)
And I've been so lonely (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)
