You used to talk to me like
I was the only one around
You used to lean on me
The only other choice was falling down
You used to walk with me like
We had no where we needed to go
Nice and slow
To no place in particular

We used to have this figured out
We used to breathe without a doubt
When nights were clear you were the first star that i'd see
We used to have this under control
We never thought we used to know
At least there's you
And at least there's me
Can we get this back?
Can we get this back?
To how it used to be

I used to reach for you
I got lost along the way
I used to listen
You always had the just right thing to say
I used to follow you
Never really cared where we would go
Fast or slow
To anywhere at all

We used to have this figured out
We used to breathe without a doubt
The nights were clearer for the first time that I'd see
We used to have this under control
We never thought we used to know
At least there's you
And at least there's me
Can we get this back?
Can we get this back?
To how it used to be

I look around me
And I want you to be there
Cause I miss the things that we shared
Look around you
It's empty and you're sad
Don't you miss the love that we had?

You used to talk to me like
I was the only one around
The only one around

We used to have this figured out
We used to breathe without a doubt
The nights were clearer for the first time that I'd see
We used to have this under control
We never thought we used to know
At least there's you
And at least there's me
Can we get this back?
Can we get this back?
To how it used to be yeah
To how it used to be

To how it used to be yeah
To how it used to be
To how it used to be

    General CommentI think it means, there was a great relationship, and something went bad, and one person treats the other person differently than before the bad happened. and the other person is wishing things could be back to how they were.

    General CommentMy girlfriend and I have only been together for 3 and a half months, but we used to be so amazingly in love with eachother. We'd talk on MSN everyday since we got eachother's addresses, she texted me whenever we couldn't talk on MSN, and I used to go see her every day after college, and stay with her every weekend.

    Summer holidays came up, and I started to stay for periods longer than the weekend, at first it was fine, she loved me being there for a week, two weeks, then I stayed for three weeks, things went sour, I came home for four days, and things have been strange between us ever since. We both still love eachother, but it feels like we're growing apart, and I'm just filling my days reminiscing about the way things were... I feel she could end it any minute, and I'm dreading it, but I don't want to end it.

    This song has been on repeat since she told me things have changed earlier today. I think that it's pretty straightforward that this is what the song represents... Losing a spark, and desperately wanting it back.
