It's you and me and so much in between
all tangled up in the passage of time
Trust and blame and feelings with no name
fighting it out in the back of my mind

And I'm looking for you in each familar place
Dreaming of you but I come up empty when I wake

Oh how I reach for the way things used to be
Oh I believe in the way things used to be
Oh how I need to find you next to me
The way things used to be

It's hope and fear both ringing in my ear
The bells of the lonely shakin my soul
Hide and seek, the words we never speak
The hear is a traveler headed for home

And I'm looking for you in each familar place
Dreaming of you but I come up empty when I wake

Oh how I reach for the way things used to be
Oh I believe in the way things used to be
Oh how I need to find you next to me
The way things used to be

A word, a call, am I climbing just to fall?
The light's in your eyes am I fading from view?

But I'm looking for you in each familar place
Dreaming of you but I come up empty when I wake

Oh how I reach for the way things used to be
Oh I believe in the way things used to be
Oh how I need to find you next to me
The way things used to be
