"Remember When (Used to Be Used to It)" as written by and Maike Haini/climer Maile....
Your initial reply hit me undercover
When I lost my head to it
It was out of its time, it was undiscovered
As I caught my breath again
You were running out of lies to keep me under
Afraid of your back hands ?
So to speak, you had me shaking at the knees

But I don't know the way out of this mess
No, I don't know the way out of this mess
And if you would've seen me at my best
Would it have changed anything at all?

Remember when, we never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this

The door was always open
But still not nearly enough to let me in
and my eyes are wide awake,
And i can see you clearly, but you don't stand out one bit.
I was always loud enough just for you to hear me
You never caught the wind
Now watch me break
Breakdown this time, this time again

But I don't know the way out of this mess
No, I don't know the way out of this mess
And if you would've seen me at my best
Would it have changed anything at all?

Remember when, we never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
(When times were better, when times were better than this) [Repeat: x2]

And I'm still waiting for a sign
Or just a win-win situation
Can I hear it one more time?
Without the sound of devastation setting in

Your initial reply hit me undercover
When I lost my head to it
It was out of its time, it was undiscovered
When you let me in
Oh, won't you let me in?

Remember when, we never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this

Do you remember, remember when?
Do you remember, remember when?
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
(When times were better, when times were better than this [x2])

    My InterpretationThe guy’s lover did something (Probably cheated or lied about something else or of the sort)
    ["You were running out of lies to keep me under/Afraid of your back hands"]
    behind his back, early in the relationship ["It was out of its time, it was undiscovered"].
    The man finds out and first wonders if he had done something to maybe cause this
    ["And if you would've seen me at my best/Would it have changed anything at all?"].
    He then confronts his lover about it, and he is scared to know the answer
    ["Your initial reply hit me undercover;So to speak, you had me shaking at the knees"].
    He most likely loves this person deeply and part of him doesn’t want to hear that he has been lied too.
    Now that he knows the truth
    ["Your initial reply hit me undercover/When I lost my head to it/It was out of its time, it was undiscovered/As I caught my breath again"] he doesn’t know what to do next
    ["But I don't know the way out of this mess/No, I don't know the way out of this mess;And I'm still waiting for a sign/Or just a win-win situation"].
    He thinks maybe if he had been stronger, or at his best["And if you would've seen me at my best
    Would it have changed anything at all?;Now watch me break/Breakdown this time, this time again"], he could have prevented what had happened.
    He remembers those times when they were happy together, and thinks about how they never had to remember when times were better
    ["Remember when -- we never had to remember when times were better/When times were better than this/We never had to remember when times were better/When times were better than this"].
    He tries to stay strong, and asks for the same answer, but without the sound of that person’s devastation (at the fact that they got caught) setting in ["Can I hear it one more time?/Without the sound of devastation setting in"].



    I know I might have missed a bit, but just reply to correct/add to mine. ^.^

    General CommentI don't know if it's 'lies' or 'lines' and I think it might be 'black hands' like her hands are dirty? Anyways this song is amazing, so catchy. I think it's about a girl and a guy who obviously like each other and obviously should be together, but neither of them wants to put in the effort, so they are kind of at a standstill. The relationship has gotten harder to maintain and they wish it was easy like it used to be.

    I love the, "the door was always open, but never quite nearly enough to let me in".
