It used to be, but not anymore
Time slipped through my fingers to the floor
It used to be, but not anymore
Tipped my hat and walked through the door

It used to be the greatest thing to catch fireflies in the evening
And to watch cartoons in my underwear
It used to be my greatest fear
Was what the girl sitting in front of me would say about my hair

But now it's so hard, I'm so far from where I have been
I cannot win anymore
Now I sometimes cry, wonder why, oh I can't stand it
Why can't it be like before?

It used to be the greatest thing to get in Your presence
Get lost in You and revel in Your majesty
It used to be I'd spend an evening alone with You
Get lost in You and hear You speak to me

Why can't it be like before?
