"Like We Used To" as written by and Nicholas/richards Santino....
I can feel her breath as she's sleepin' next to me,
Sharing pillows and cold feet.
She can feel my heart, fell asleep to its beat,
Under blankets and warm sheets.

If only I could be in that bed again...
If only it were me instead of him...

Does he watch your favorite movies?
Does he hold you when you cry?
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts when you've seen it a million times?
Does he sing to all your music while you dance to "Purple Rain?"
Does he do all these things, like I used to?

Fourteen months and seven days ago...
Oh, I know you know,
How we felt about that night.
Just your skin against the window...
Oh, we took it slow,
And we both know...
It should've been me inside that car.
It should've been me instead of him... in the dark.

Does he watch your favorite movies?
Does he hold you when you cry?
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts when you've seen it a million times?
Does he sing to all your music while you dance to "Purple Rain?"
Does he do all these things, like I used to?

I know, love, (I'm a sucker for that feeling.)
Happens all the time, love, (I always end up feelin' cheated.)
You're on my mind, love, (or so that matter when I need it.)
It happens all the time- love, yeah.

Will he love you like I loved you?
Will he tell you everyday?
Will he make you feel like you're invincible with every word he'll say?
Can you promise me if this is right:
Don't throw it all away?
Can you do all these things?
Will you do all these things...
Like we used to?
Oh, like we used to...

    My OpinionI love this song so much. It's sad, but at the same time makes me sort of happy-feel. Perhaps they got the feel of the song wrong that way, or it was meant. But I love it.

    General CommentThis song is basically about this girl who he used to date and her new boyfriend. He's wondering if the boy treats her right and does all the things that he used to. He's obviously still in love with the girl and all the things she does.

    He still loves the girl. He wants to know if she's really happy with this new guy, and if he treats her right. If he does, he wants her to make sure to make it last [which she did not do with him.]
    He wants her to be happy. Easy as that.

    General CommentI agree with all of the above, but I think they broke up because he likely caught her cheating on him

    General CommentThis song is sort of sad...a bittersweet sort of feel to it. It's about a boy who is so in love with this girl and he threw it all away because of something stupid. So now she is with a new guy and he hopes that he treats her right. He hopes that she is happy. He wants to make sure she stays with him and to make it last. So in a way, I agree with ThreeCheersForFiveYears.
    Beautiful song though.

    My Interpretationthis song is cleary about the singer being cheated on and leaving the girl. But he still has feelings for her, but he's happy as long as she's happy with the guy.
