I wanted your love but look what it's done to me
All my dreams have come to nothing
Who would have believed?
All the laughter that we shared would be a memory
I cannot count the tears you've cost me
If I could have seen

And do you ever think of me
And how we used to be?

Oh I know you're somewhere else right now
And loving someone else no doubt
Well I'm one for sorrow
And it too too bad
Are you breaking someone else's heart?
Cause your taking my love where you are
Well I'm one for sorrow
Ain't it too too bad about us

I wanted your love, but I got uncertainty
I tried so hard to understand you
All the good it did me
Now the places that we knew remind me of how we were
Everything is just the same
But all I feel is hurt

And do you ever think of me
And how we used to be?

    General Commentthis song is about being cheated on and the person being cheated on wants their ex to think about it before going off hence 'And do you ever think of me, And how we used to be? '

    General CommentIn fact I interpreted this song the opposite way from Jsimpson88. When I heard this song, it sounded like it's from the perspective of the girl he was on cheating on with- the 3rd party in the relationship.
    Perhaps she only just became aware that she's the 3rd party and she's now devastated to know that she's only the other girl. All she wanted was his love but look what it's done to her. And now she knows he's somewhere else and loving someone else. But he has taken her love with him wherever he is but she can't do anything abt it and it's just such a shame now.

    Might sound nuts but that's exactly how I interpreted the song!

    Song Meaningjsimpson and spinningfree your both wrong - how do i know? because this song speaks my feelings.. i know its corny seen as its steps but seriously..

    its talking about an ex you still have feelings for, you's finished on bad terms and you know he has someone new but you cant let go of the memorys etc..
