Remember when 
It all began 
We were all in love 
Then came the friends 
Telling you when
Your time for me was good enough 
I constantly
Had to compete 
With your crew and their schemes 
Remembering 
Back in the day
I used to mean everything

(If we could just get it back)
To the way it used to be
(My only wish would be that)
Nothing would change for you and me
(I remember how it was)
And I know that for a fact 
(We were oh so deep in love)
If we could just get it back

Now tell me why 
So many nights 
You had so much to do 
When you said bye 
Sometimes I tried
I tried to make you choose 
Now tell me how
You can allow
You boys to control
The time we shared 
It was unfair 
But now you need to know

(Now if I told you) 
That I'm moving on 
(Boy what would you do) 
Things just ain't the same 
(We were supposed to) 
Conquer everything yeah 
(Boy let me tell you)
You've got to make a change

(If we could just get it back)
To the way it used to be 
(My only wish would be that)
Nothing would change for you and me
(I remember how it was)
And I know that for a fact
(We were oh so deep in love)
If we could just get it back

(If we could just get it back)
To the way it used to be
(My only wish would be that)
Nothing would change for you and me
(I remember how it was)
And I know that for a fact
(We were oh so deep in love)
If we could just get it back
