The Way It Used To Be

Songfacts®:

  • This uptempo track was released as the first single from Mike Posner's second album, Pages. According to the singer-songwriter it is "just a fun, fun song. Strong melodies… and it's about the girl that got away."
  • Posner titled the record after the notebook that he carries around everywhere he goes. "My album is called Pages because I write all my songs, and my poems and my goals in life in this notebook," he explained. "So I titled the album 'Pages, because it's really just a few pages from my notebook that turned into the album."
