The Way it Used to Be

I talk to you
But you don’t hear me
I walk to you
But you don’t feel me
I look hard at you
But I still see
The way it used to be

You say you’re there
But you don’t know me
You say you care
But you won’t show me
I look hard at you
But I still see
The way it used to be

How did we lose each other
Along this torn up road
We should have stayed together
We should have known
Have we strayed too far now
I can only try
I know where we are now
But I don’t know why
I don’t know why

You can’t change my mind
With money or gifts
Don’t waste my time
If it’s gonna be like this
I’m looking hard at you now
But I can still see
The way it used to be


Tired of people walking out on me
Around every corner it seems
Wish I could find you
I hope its not too late
I believe in miracles
But I don’t believe in fate
