Gene Chandler – What Now lyrics

What now after you've
Done me like you did
Already, I'm stringing along
Like an infatuated kid

You oblige to do me wrong
With no explanation
There's never any love
Nor conversation

So after holding in my fear
And fighting off my tears
What now (what now) what now
(What now, what now)

I've tried making my
Life complete with you
But it seems there's no value
Toward people true to you

I cried to you
I can't take it too much longer
But every hurt and bit of dirt
Makes you stronger


Becomes so very loud
In front of all the crowd
Don't know from day to day
What now, what now, what now

So after holding in my fear
And fighting off my tears
What now (what now, what now)
What now (what now, what now)...

Baby, baby, do you remember
When I asked you to just be true
And, baby, can you tell me
