Produced by Black Sabbath. Album Technical Ecstasy. I've been a long long time-waiting for you I didn't want to see you go-oh, no, no And now, it's hurting so much, what can I do? I wanted you to be my wife The days are passing slowly since you've gone Your memories are all I have-yes, I have I sit here waiting, but-you'll never show Without you, I can't carry on-oh, my baby. I should have seen it in your eyes The endless hours of heartache-waiting for you My summer love has turned to rain-all the pain The silent emptiness-of one sided love My life means nothing now you're gone-oh, my baby. She’s Gone" Track Info. Written By Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne & 1 more.
