You used to talk to me
Like I was the only one around.
You used to lean on me like
The only other choice was falling down.
You used to walk with me like
We had nowhere we could go,
Nice and slow
To no place in particular.

We used to have this figured out,
We used to breathe without a doubt.
When nights were clear, you were the first star that I'd see.
We used to have this under control.
We never thought, we used to know.
At least there's you, and at least there's me.
Can we get this back,
Can we get this back
To how it used to be?

I used to reach for you,
When I got lost along the way.
I used to listen,
You always had just the right thing to say.
I used to follow you,
Never really cared where we would go,
Fast or slow,
To anywhere at all.

We used to have this figured out,
We used to breathe without a doubt.
When nights were clear, you were the first star that I'd see.
We used to have this under control.
We never thought,
We used to know.
At least there's you, and at least there's me.
Can we get this back,
Can we get this back,
To how it used to be?

I look around me,
And I want you to be there
'Cause I miss the things that we shared.
Look around you.
It's empty, and you're sad
'Cause you miss the love that we had.

You used to talk to me like
I was the only one around,
The only one around.

We used to have this figured out,
We used to breathe without a doubt.
When nights were clear, you were the first star that I'd see.
We used to have this under control.
We never thought,
We used to know.
At least there's you, and at least there's me.
Can we get this back,
Can we get this back,
To how it used to be?
Yeah.
To how it used to be.
To how it used to be.
Yeah.
To how it used to be.

    This song makes me cry because it reminds me of my ex boyfriend who i went out with twice and the second time... It just wasn't the same or even close to the same...
    So i think it could be about a couple who broke up and possibly got back together and one of them wishes everything was back to how it 'used to' be.

    I love daughtry's music sooo much! They make the best songs ever

    gosh this song is amazing.
    how i relate to it is:: two people. who used to be best friends. something happened to make them grow apart. now they aren't close at all. they barely talk. he wants to go back to when they were super close because it was a mistake to grow apart and he wishes it hadn't happened
