Have I stayed away too long?
Have I stayed away too long?
If I came home tonight, would you still be my darlin' ?
Or, have I stayed away too long?

The love light that shone so strong
Sweet love light that shone so strong
If I came home tonight, would that same light be shinin' ?
Or, have I stayed away too long?

I'm just outside of town
I'll soon be at your door
But maybe I'd be wrong to hurry there
I'd best keep out of town, and worry you no more
For, maybe someone else has made you care

Have all of my dreams gone wrong?
My beautiful dreams gone wrong?
If I came home tonight, would you still be my darlin' ?
Or, have I stayed away too long?

I'd best keep out of town, and worry you no more
For, maybe someone else has made you care

Have all of my dreams gone wrong?
My beautiful dreams gone wrong?
If I came home tonight, would you still be my darlin' ?
Or, have I stayed away too long?

Stayed away too long?

Words and Music by Frank Loesser, 1943
