Lyrics to song Love is Here and Now You're Gone by Michael Jackson

Verse 1
Love is here
And oh my darling, now you're gone
Love is here
And oh my darling, now you're gone
You persuaded me to love you
And I did
But instead of tenderness
I found heartache instead
Into your arms I fell
So unaware of the loneliness
Thar was waiting there
Spoken
You closed the door to
your heart, girl
And you turned the key
Locked your love away from me

Verse 2
Love is here
And oh my darling, now you're gone
You made me love you
And oh my darling, now you're gone
You said loving you
Would make life beautiful
With each passing day
But as soon as love came
Into my heart
You turned and you walked
Just walked away

Spoken
You stripped me of my dreams
You gave me faith, then
you took my hope
Look at me now

Verse 3
Look at me
See what loving has done to me
Look at my face
See how cryin' has left its trace
After you made me all your own
Then you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love
I couldn't keep

Spoken
My heart cries out for your touch
But baby, you're not there
And the lonely cry fades in the air

Verse 4
Love is here
And oh my darling, now you're gone
Love is here
And oh my darling, now you're gone
You made me love you
Oh oh my darling, now you're gone
Talking 'bout love,
love, love, love,
Ooh ooh my darling, now you're gone
