  • Got to get you off of my mind
    I know it's just a matter of time
    You've found somebody new
    And our romance is through
    Yes it is

    Gonna throw your picture away
    You didn't want my love, any old way
    You've found somebody new
    And our romance is through
    Yes it is

    Some folks love is hard and strong
    That's the kind of love that lingers on
    Some folks love is swift and fast
    That's the kind of love that'll never last

    We had a love that was in between
    And to me it was like a dream
    If we had stayed together till June
    Not a problem, bride and groom

    That's why
    Got to get you off of my mind
    I know it's just a matter of time
    You've found somebody new
    And our romance is through
    Listen to me

    Got to get you off of my mind
    I know it's just a matter of time
    Got to get you off of my mind
    I know it's just a matter of time Writer/s: DOLORES BURKE, JOHN MOORE, SOLOMON BURKE, SOLOMON V. BURKE
