The Way It Used To Be

  • We were young
    We were never growing old
    And the glitter was still gold
    They way it used to be

    It was love
    It was easy just to smile
    It was easy for a while
    The way it used to be

    But even stars they fade
    And colors turn to grey
    I miss yesterday
    And the way it used to be

    And I can't turn back time
    Even if I tried
    I miss you tonight
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

    Look at you
    You've got the life, the pretty house
    But you must still think about
    The way it used to be

    Is it real
    He don't love you like I do
    Can we just go back to
    The way it used to be

    'Cause even stars they fade
    And colors turn to grey
    I miss yesterday
    And the way it used to be

    And I can't turn back time
    Even if I tried
    I miss you tonight
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

    And girl I miss the way

    Look at us
    Just look what we've become
    Just a shell of what was once
    The way it used to be

    Even stars they fade
    And colors turn to grey
    I miss yesterday
    And the way it used to be

    And I can't turn back time
    Even if I tried
    I miss you tonight
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

    And girl I miss the way it used to be
    And girl I miss the way it used to be Writer/s: JOSHUA COLEMAN, MARTIN JOHNSON, MIKE POSNER
