  • Used to be, used to be, used to be
    You and me, you and me, you and me

    I guess it's official
    So you don't wanna kick it with a five star stunna like me
    You got his initials
    Where my name used to be
    Where my chain used to be
    Didn't I used to be that dude?

    I see you everywhere-everywhere I go
    Gotta hear it from everybody we know
    I be tryna keep it G like it's whatever
    Wishing you and me were back together

    Girl I used to be your Superman
    Now I'm flying solo
    You used to be one hundred with me
    Now you on the low-low
    Things ain't been the same
    Girl we ain't a thing like we
    Used to be, used to be, used to be

    We used to be like Jay and Beyonce
    Brad and Angelina
    Haven't let the gossip and the rumors come between us
    We ain't like we
    Used to be, used to be, used to be
    That used to be us

    We has J's in every color for the summer (th-that was us)
    Spent them holiday's with one another (th-that was us)
    Oh, girl we was like family
    Don't front with me I know you missin'
    What we used to be

    I see you everywhere-everywhere I go
    I gotta hear it from everybody we know
    I been tryna keep it G like it's whatever
    Wishing you and me were back together

    Girl I used to be your Superman
    Now I'm flying solo
    You used to be one hundred with me
    Now you on the low-low
    Things ain't been the same
    Girl we ain't a thing like we
    Used to be, used to be, used to be

    We used to be like Jay and Beyonce
    Brad and Angelina
    Haven't let the gossip and the rumors come between us
    We ain't like we
    Used to be, used to be, used to be
    That used to be us

    Can you even blame me girl
    For feeling like you threw it all away
    I'mma let you crown your rebound king
    But that ain't nothing
    Like we used to be

    Girl I used to be your Superman
    Now I'm flying solo
    You used to be one hundred with me
    Now you on the low-low
    Things ain't been the same
    Girl we ain't a thing like we
    Used to be, used to be, used to be

    We used to be like Jay and Beyonce
    Brad and Angelina
    Haven't let the gossip and the rumors come between us
    We ain't like we
    Used to be, used to be, used to be
    That used to be us
    That was us
    That was us
    That was us
    That was us
    That was us
    That was us Writer/s: CANDICE NELSON, CHRESANTO AUGUST, CRAIG CRIPPEN, DEWAYNE SWAN, JACOB PEREZ, LAKEISHA GAMBLE, RAYAN LOPEZ, WALTER MILLSAP
