where have you been lyrics – debbie gibson

verse 1:
something’s funny ’bout your touch lately
it’s like you’ve been touching someone else
and the sound of your voice,
well something’s stopping you from being yourself
we’ve always been honest –
and painfully so –
so tell me though i don’t want to hear

i have to ask you
where have you been?
’cause i think i know the answer
and it’s not what i wanted to hear
dear, where have you been?
i’ve been waiting up for you
i don’t want to accuse but
your eyes and mouth they tell a different story
i don’t want to hear it but –
the truth –
where have you been?

verse 2:
(well) i know it’s easy to lose faith
we look simply for a change of pace
and i know my moods, they go up and down
but when you’re climbing walls, don’t i stick around?
you caught me
on some little white lies
it’s you who taught me
about silent goodbyes

i have to ask you
where have you been?
’cause i think i know the answer
and it’s isn’t what i wanted to hear
dear, where have you been?
i’ve been waiting up for you
i don’t want to accuse but
your eyes and mouth they tell a different story
i don’t want to hear it-
but the truth-
where have you been?

bridge:
a silent cry fills the room
i hear it no sooner than the words ring true
i knew it all along
please erase this song
end this harsh reality
what did you do to me? oh…

i have to ask you
where have you been?
’cause i think i know the answer
and it isn’t what i wanted to hear
no
i’ve been waiting up for you
i have to ask you
where have you been?
i think i know the answer
it’s written all over your face

no-no-no
no-no-no-no
i don’t want to know – yeah

your eyes and mouth they tell a different story
i don’t want to hear it –
but the truth –
where have you been?
i don’t want to hear it – but tell me
where have you been?
no…
where have you been?
where have you been?
