"Where We Were Before" as written by Eliot Walker Sloan, Jeffrey Curtis Pence, John Rzeznik and Matthew Joseph Senatore....
When we started it was years ago
We tried so hard to find our souls
And lose the innocence that won't let go
So we crossed the line and can't turn back
Happy endings never last
Cause there's always more to stories never told

Is this what I've been waiting for
A life for someone else
To polish all my faded dreams and put them on the shelf
Is this what I've been dreaming of
Cause I'm needing so much more
I'm just trying to get back where we were before

We'd shine so hard for everyone
Cause we thought we had forever and
A day we never thought would end this way
With a million mornings left to come
We never cared for losing one
But it's half past my forever
And I need someone to hold my hand

And you're just what I've been waiting for
To come and take me in
To grab ahold and take control and make me whole again
And if you need my everything
You can take it all and more
Just help me get back to where we were before

I've grown numb to some things
Hunger for one thin
That takes me back to where it all began
I know we've grown apart
But every now and then
I just close my eyes and here we are again

And you're just what I've been waiting for
So come and take me in
To grab ahold and take control and make me whole my friend
And if you need my everything
You can take it all and more
Just help me get back to where we were before

    General CommentThis is a good song about a relationship that grew apart, but he wants to go back to where the relationship started out with so much love they thought it would never end.
