Otis Redding – Gone Again lyrics

The sun is gone away
It is dark in the day
No kids are laughing
And none are playing

No flowers have grown
Since the month of May
That's how it's been
Since you've gone again

One you left without a reason
Two without a pleasing
Three with a terrible pain
Four you're gone again

Picture a winter
Without any snow
Look up at the sky
There's no star that glow

Picture a river
With nowhere to flow
That's how it's been, honey
Since you've gone again

One without a reason
Two without a pleasing
Three with a terrible pain
Four you're gone again

I walked in the forest
Didn't see no trees
Go to sleep at night
With a cold wind of breeze

I ain't got no friends
I got cold enemies
That's how it's been
Honey, since you've gone again

Gone, gone again, gone, gone again
Gone mama, gone again, yes, you are
Where can I find you? I need you, darling

Where can I get to you? I want you, mama baby
I love you, darling, I need you, oh gone again
Come back to me, baby
