I woke up in bed last night when something came upon me
I was not lying by myself but I've never felt so lonely
Something's come between us, girl, feels like we hit a wall
How can I know just how you feel when we don't touch at all

This no communication thing is quickly growing old
This isolation booth I'm in is dark and turning cold
I used to steal your breath away with just one little kiss
Me and you, we were so in love back then but that's not how it is

I'd catch moonlight in a bottle if we could drink a toast to happiness
Fill my pick-up bed with roses and back it right up to your door

[Chorus]
I'd write your name in candy kisses from here to Carolina
If you change your mind and love me like before but that's not how it is

I have tossed and turned and rolled it over in my mind
Not knowing all the questions make the answers hard to find
I think I've covered everything but still there's something that I've missed
I used to read you, baby, like a book but that's not how it is

I'd catch moonlight in a bottle if we could drink a toast to happiness
Fill my pick-up bed with roses and back it right up to your door

[Chorus: x2]

Oh, no, that's not how it is

I woke up in bed last night
When something came upon me
And I've never been so lonely
That's not how it is
