lyrics

HOW IT USED TO BE

Verse:
C F
Received word today, the final decree,
Dm G
Oh it's over now, you and I are finally free,
Dm G
I can remember when you loved me,
C F
Conversation flowed so easily,
Dm G
Now we're both walkin', and nobody's talkin'
C
HOW IT USED TO BE, HOW IT USED TO BE.

Chorus:
F
HOW IT USED TO BE,
F C
Your unbridled passion lit a fire in me,
F
HOW IT USED TO BE,
G
When I loved you and you loved me,
C
HOW IT USED TO BE.



Verse: [changes repeat]

The kids are grown, we raised 'em up right,
They didn't hear us cuss, or see us have a real bad fight,
Wonder when they could see in our eye,
Mom and Dad were just livin' a lie,
Their love was a shadow of days gone by and
HOW IT USED TO BE
HOW IT USED TO BE.
Bridge:
Thinkin' back on warm summer nights,
Your sweet scent as we held tight,
Stolen chances,
Romantic glances,
Our love was meant to be,
Now it's lawyers decidin' what's yours and mine,
Billable minutes addin' up just fine,
Now we're both walkin', and nobody's talkin'
HOW IT USED TO BE.
HOW IT USED TO BE.
2nd Chorus:
HOW IT USED TO BE,
When I loved you and you loved me,
HOW IT USED TO BE,
Sometimes I think this is killin' me,
HOW IT USED TO BE
HOW IT USED TO BE



TAG: (Slow Fade)
Dm G
Now we're both walkin', and nobody's talkin'
C
HOW IT USED TO BE.
Dm G
Now we're both walkin', and nobody's talkin'
C
HOW IT USED TO BE.
Dm G
Now we're both walkin', and nobody's talkin'
C
HOW IT USED TO BE.
