I can smell the scent of fresh cut grass
You know it kind of took me back
To yesterday when we was young, oh so young
I remember we were so scared
To even hold each other's hands
But still we fell so deep in love
When did it start to rain
How did things get so strange
When did it go astray

Chorus:
'Cause you don't love or want me
Sometimes I think that you don't know me
I just ned for you to show me
Oh like you used to do
Like you used to do
You were my Weezy, you were my Boo
You was my Thelma, damn I was into you
Why can't it be that way again baby
You were my Marvin, my Billy Dee
Oh baby my, my, my sweet melody
Why can't you play that music today
I wanna play baby
When did it start to rain
How did things get so strange
When did it go astray
Girl you don't want me, need me
Girl you don't even try to please me
I would if you would squeeze me
Like you used to do
Like you used to do
You don't hear me, you don't feel me
Sometimes I think you don't even see me
Well girl I would if you believed in me yeah
Like you used to do
Like you used to do
When we gonna do it like we used to
When we gonna do it
Like you used to do
When we gonna do it like we used to do
When we gonna do it
Tell me when did it start to rain
How did things get so strange baby
When did it go astray
I wanna know when did it start to rain
How did things get so strange baby
I wanna know, I wanna know

Chorus:
Well you don't hear me, you don't feel me
Sometimes I think that you don't see me
Well girl I would if you believed in me yeah
Like you used to do
When we gonna do it like we used to do
When we gonna do it
Like you used to do
When we gonna do it like we used to do
When we gonna do it
