Every night
I sit here by my window
Staring at the lonely avenue

Watching lovers
Holding hands and laughing
And thinking 'bout the
Things we used to do

[Chorus:]
(Thinking of things)
Lke a walk in the park
(Things) like a kiss in the dark
(Things) like a sailboat ride
What about the night we cried

Things like a lovers vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking 'bout the things
We used to do

Memories are all I
Have to cling to
And heartaches are the
Friends I'm talking to

When I'm not thinking of
Just how much I love you
Well, I'm thinking 'bout the
Things we used to do

[Repeat chorus]

Things like a lovers vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking 'bout the things
We used to do

Still can hear the
Jukebox softly playing
And the face I see
It still belongs to you

Now there's not a single sound
There's nobody else around
Well, it's just me thinking 'bout
The things we used to do

[Repeat chorus]

Things like a lovers vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking 'bout the things
We used to do

And heartaches are the
Friends I'm talking to
Got me thinking 'bout the
Things we used to do
Staring at the lonely avenue
