As I close my eyes a dream comes to me of the wind blowing leaves
and whisper to me oh yeah

Chorus
Ooh said it should've never been this way now we don't wanna go back
to the way we were the way we were

Beneath her lonely soul her heart has turned to stone because of the things
we do and we don't wanna change the things we do

Chorus
Ooh said it should've never been this way now we don't wanna go back
to the way we were the way we were

    General Commenthes thinking back on times he's had with a girl that bring him happiness. things went wrong between them and they are both, in a way, comfortable where they are at now. he thinks things should have never gotten to this point and wishes he could go back to where they were but cant at the same time.

    General CommentI believe the "she" in the song is Mother Earth and he is talking about how our modern ways have damaged and corrupted the very soul of this planet and we cannot return to the simpler ways of the past where we lived in harmony with out planet.
