Every night I sit here by my window (window)
Staring at the lonely avenue (avenue)
Watching lovers holding hands and laughing (laughing)
Thinking about the things we used to do.

(Thinking about things) like a walk in the park
(Things) like a kiss in the dark
(Things) like a sailboat ride (yeah, yeah)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lovers vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking about the things we used to do.

Well, memories are all I have to cling to (cling to)
And heartaches are the friends I'm talking to (talking to)
When I'm not thinking of just how much I love you
I'm thinking about the things we used to do.

(Thinking about things) like a walk in the park
(Things) like a kiss in the dark
(Things) like a sailboat ride (yeah, yeah)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lovers vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking about the things we used to do.

I still can hear the jukebox softly playing
The face I see each day belongs to you
There's not a single sound
There's nobody else around
Just me thinking of things we used to do

(Thinking about things) like a walk in the park
(Things) like a kiss in the dark
(Things) like a sailboat ride (yeah, yeah)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lovers vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking about the things we used to do.

Well, I'm just thinking about the things we used to do.
Walking down the lonely avenue
Yes, I'm just thinking about the things we used to do...
