Do you remember the time
when you and I were fine?
Hiding under the apple tree,
there was no one but you and me
We would hide from passing cars
and we would have the summer stars

And we were better then, (better then)
then we'd ever been before (ever been)
You came back to me after walking out my door (out my door)
And you would call me on your phone
before you even got home (got home)
And without me you said you were all alone

The cold wind that blows
all the things I used to know
How could it fade so fast?
Never thought you'd be part of my past
Would I trade it all again
to get you out of my head?

Cause we were better then, (better then)
then we'd ever been before (ever been)
You came back to me after walking out my door (out my door)
And you would call me on your phone
(got home, got home, got home, got home)
before you even got home
And without me you said you were all alone, alone

Without me by your side
you said you were all alone
Give me one more chance
to prove myself to you
All the little things that I've longed to do
(when you went away)
Would you trade the cold
(you said you'd be)
so that I could hold you?
(coming up my front porch)
We'd make it all go away
(just to see me, baby)

And my heart is breaking (when you went away)
Would you hear me then? (you said that you'd be)
As the tears are longing (coming up my front porch)
for what used to be (just to see me)

Cause we were better then, (better then)
then we'd ever been before (ever been)
You came back to me after walking out my door (out my door)
And you would call me on your phone
(got home, got home, got home, got home)
before you even got home
And without me you said you were all alone

And without me you said you were all alone

Cause we were better then, (when you went away)
then we'd ever been before (you said you'd be)
You came back to me (coming up my front porch)
after walking out my door (just to see me)
And you would call me on your phone (when you went away)
before you even got home (you said you'd be)
And without me (coming up my front porch)
you said you were all alone (just to see me, baby)

    General Commentok im PRETTY sure this is a taking back sunday song but i dont think it was on that 5 song demo thing and its definately not on the new cd but all evidence points to it being them but if anyone knwos for sure let me know. its not a bad song its got the two vocals harmony thing going on at the end which is cool.
    pretty obvious what its about, just read the lyrics. anyways taking back sunday is a great band so i just wanted to make sure all their stuff is on here.
    righto.
