The Way It Was

 I don't know how, but nights get lonely now
 They keep appearing in my eyes
 Such a warm and tender glow
 For just one moment I remember all
 The love we had was never all that bad
 There were smiles and there were tears
 On that special starry night, with your arms around me
 Held on tight
 Wasn't that the way it was?
 Two strangers reaching for a worthless cause
 Wasn't that the love we shared?
 Or just the restless years when no-one cared
 I don't know why, it's hard to say goodbye
 Or even justify the end
 You meant so very much to me
 Then to let you go, start my life again
 The love we had was never all that bad
 There were smiles and there were tears
 Till that special summer day
 When I reached out for you, you just walked away
 Wasn't that the way it was?
 Two strangers reaching for a worthless cause
 Wasn't that the love we shared?
 Or just the restless years when no-one cared
 When you move it like you really know how to move me
 I follow you wherever you go I just want
