You've Been in Love Too Long
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Girls, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)
Don't you know, girls
You've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)

When just his smile takes all your pain away
And you find yourself believing whatever he may say
Now when he keeps you cryin'
But your heart tells you, Girl, keep right on tryin'
Girls, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)
Don't you know, girls? You've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)

When you accept his wrongs just to share his kiss
And even though lonely nights are filled with happiness
Now girl, you're in trouble; you know your heart is seein' double
When your head tells you to run
But your heart says he's your only one
Girls, you've been in love too long
You're a fool for your baby)

(Girl, you've been in love too long)
You're a fool
'Cause when a week of loneliness
Can be erased with just one sweet caress
Girls, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)
I say girls, oh yeah, you're a fool
When his wrong looks right 'cause he always treats you bad
When you find little excuses for all the sadness & abuses
Don't you know, girls, you're in love
You're just a fool for your baby
Girls, you've been in love too long
You're just a fool

My first Bonnie Raitt album from 1974. Every song a gem.

DH Benz

Same

Harley Springer

Back in 1973 this song began my life-long infatuation with Bonnie and her talents. I saw her in concert just once - with Eric Clapton in Montreal. Their shared final set was the musical experience of a lifetime.

James Lomasney

Great guitar work!!

Mary Ellen Zander

My first introduction to Bonnie was this song and album...1973. Great album! Wish I could find it again.
