Hall – The Way We Were lyrics

This is how it began
This is how it was
When we didn’t have a clue, now here we are
It was long foreshadowed
We didn’t realize
That it was our last chance, time to go inside

You didn’t say goodbye, you
You rather carved these lines
About your fears, about your anger and about your pride
It was a bitter mixture
And everything we’ve seen
It built without a question on all that we’ve ever been

Everything we’ve been
Everything we’ve seen
All that we had built on all that, built on all that we had
Everything we’ve been
Everything we’ve seen
All that we had built on all that, built on all that we had been

This is how it started
This is how it went
When we didn't have a plan, and it went bad
That’s the way we were but
The days aren’t coming back
And still we are staying here, tell me why the heck

You didn’t say goodbye, you
You rather carved these lines
About your fears, about your anger and about your pride

Everything we’ve been
Everything we’ve seen
All that we had built on all that, built on all that we had
Everything we’ve been
Everything we’ve seen
All that we had built on all that, built on all that we had been

This is how it was
This is what we’ve seen
This is just the way that we have been
This is how we went
Went through hell and back
Burned our ivory skin and broke our necks

Everything we’ve been
Everything we’ve seen
All that we had built on all that, built on all that we had
Everything we’ve been
Everything we’ve seen
All that we had built on all that, built on all that we had been

This is the road we went down
This is the way we all know
This is the path we must go
This is the way
This is the road we went down
This is the way we are now
And now we're dying alone
This is the way we were
