Like He Used to Do to Me

Verse 1.




I met this boy one day





and we started to hang out.





He showed me that love comes inside me.





But he thought we were friends




and I thought we were more than that.





Then one day this girl comes along





and takes him away from me





He doesn’t even mention me as they were talking.




As I was watching them behind a bush,



















Chorus:
He lifted her off the ground,




showed her his world,




shined her under the sun





and glowed her under the moon.




Like he used to do to me.





























Verse 2.
Then one night he came to me and said,





“I know you thought we were more than friends.




But if I had to choose between you and her I would choose her.




Anyway the reason I’m here is to ask you





if you would like to come to the wedding tomorrow?”



I said yes for some reason.




When I got there





I finally found out who the girl was





it was my sister.




I was in complete shock.




But after they said their I dos and the priest pronounced them man and wife





and they kissed and walked down the aisle.




It was time for the bride and groom to dance.


















Chorus:
He lifted her off the ground,




showed her his world,




shined her under the sun




and glowed her under the moon.




Like he used to do to me.






















Verse 3.
Then two weeks after the honeymoon



they came over to visit me.





We put on some music and we would dance




and dance until it was time for them to leave.




They danced all the way to the vehicle.




















Chorus:
And He lifted her off the ground,



showed her his world,



shined her under the sun





and glowed her under the moon.





Like he used to do to me.





Now I moved on to a new life.




I moved back home to Tennessee living my normal life again.




Sometimes I think of the time when





he lifted me off the ground,




showed me his world,



shined me under the sun




and glowed me under the moon.





Now he does that to her.





He lifts her off the ground,




showed her his world,




shined her under the sun





and glowed her under the moon.





Like he used to do to me.




Like he used to do to me.

This is nice. I like the chorus. The bit about her being your sister interrupted the flow of the verse a little.
