"Make It Like It Was" as written by and Carvin Lawrence Winans....
Everyday we used to slip away to talk
We would talk about the goodness of your heart
Now it seems I admit that never exist at all
And it leaves me feeling empty
With this hollow chord

Make it like it was
The way it used to be
When i hungered for your love
Constantly
Make it like it was
It was easier for me
I know you're able
To make it like it was

At a certain time you would find me on my knees
Asking you to show light on my brother's needs
Now it seems the needs are a secondary thing
And it truly makes me wonder
Whats really happening

Make it like it was
The way it used to be
When i hungered for your love
Constantly
Make it like it was
It was easier for me
I know you're able
To make it like it was

Now when I compare there's really no comparing
I just want it the way it used to be
Just the thought of living with the horror
Makes me ask that you make it like it was

Make it like it was
The way it used to be
When i hungered for your love
Constantly
Make it like it was
It was easier for me
I know you're able
To make it like it was

Ooh yeah
Make it like it was
Make it like it was

    General CommentI love this song. I rediscovered it a little while ago & it takes over my memories and thoughts each time it comes on.
    Interpretation: Personally, I think this song is about the writer (or singer) talking to God. I think she's asking Him to reverse some things, her love for Him because she has gone astray.
    Most listeners would think that it's about a relationship (bf/gf) and the singer is pleading with him that they could go back to the way things were. A time when they loved each other and things were easy.

    My InterpretationWhile this song can be used to represent a desire to have a relationship as it once was, it can also be interpreted as a prayer. In the context of a prayer, one possible interpretation could be that the message is a request to return to a state of faith before that faith was challenged. Another lesser interpretation could be a shift from praying for the needs of others to praying for one's own needs.
