  • Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Ba, da, ba, bum
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Ba, da, ba, bum
    Ba, da, ba, bum
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    I can hear planes flyin' over my head
    Just hours before you occupied my bed
    In our darkness we conjured up sunlight
    In our haste, our need, our thirst we lost our sight
    But I was inspired tracing the lines on your face
    To the poetry the first time I heard your name
    When I trip from your lips my heart was like a kick-drum
    And it silenced the guilt, I wasn't raised to hurt anyone
    Uh oh, does he know, that I'm lyin' in the afterglow
    That I'm lyin' but I can't go, can't say no
    Make him think he's crazy
    While his paranoia grows
    What he should be asking
    Is where did our love go
    Then I wouldn't be baskin'
    In another man's afterglow
    Where did the beat go?
    Where did the beat go?
    Where is the beat? (oh, no)
    Where did the beat go?
    So how do I justify to the judge and the jury
    The voices in my head that caused this fury
    Never had to play with matches to start a fire
    But it got so cold and I thought I'd forgotten desire
    I was your concubine and then your Madonna
    You couldn't see anything behind your baby's mama
    How long is lonely supposed to last?
    I was naked and waiting for you to come back
    Uh oh, does he know that I'm lyin' in the afterglow
    That I'm lyin' but I can't go, can't say no
    Make him think he's crazy
    While his paranoia grows
    What he should be asking
    Is where did our love go
    Then I wouldn't be baskin'
    In another man's afterglow
    Where did the beat go?
    Where did the beat go?
    Where is the beat?
    Where did the beat go?
    (In another man's afterglow)
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh ,oh
    There's a cause and effect although I took the steps
    I dove off the bridge cause I had nothing left
    All I ever wanted was you
    And in the absence of you
    I fell through
    Uh oh, does he know
    That I'm lyin' in the afterglow
    That I'm lyin' but I can't go, can't say no
    Make him think he's crazy
    While his paranoia grows
    What he should be asking
    Is where did our love go
    Then I wouldn't be baskin'
    In another man's afterglow
    Where did the beat go?
    Where did the beat go?
    Where is the beat? Yo!
    Where did the beat go?
    Where did the love go?
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Where did the beat go?
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Where did the love go? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
