Lyrics:

(LyricFind)

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips

And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips

You’re trying hard not to show it

But baby, baby I know it

You lost that lovin’ feelin’

Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’

You lost that lovin’ feelin’

Now it’s gone, gone, gone, whoa-oh

Now there’s no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you

And now you’re starting to criticize little things I do

It makes me just feel like crying

‘Cause baby, something beautiful’s dyin’

You lost that lovin’ feelin’

Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’

You lost that lovin’ feelin’

Now it’s gone, gone, gone, whoa-oh

Baby, baby, I’d get down on my knees for you

If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah

We had a love, a love, a love you don’t find everyday

So don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t let it slip away

Baby, baby, baby, baby

I beg you please, please, please, please

I need your love, need your love

I need your love, I need your love

So bring it on back, so bring it on back

Bring it on back, bring it on back

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’

Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’

‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone

And I can’t go on, whoa-oh

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’

Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’

‘Cause it’s gone, gone, gone
