J. Holiday – The Way It Was lyrics

(What happened to the day we were in love?)
(I wanna go back to the way it was)

(Verse one)
Lately, you and me aint talking much lately
And the way you act is driving me crazy
Cuz somethings wrong
Talk to me. What going on?
Nothing. Everytime I ask what's up you say it's nothing
But baby I can tell you're fronting
Somethings on your mind
But you're acting like everythings alright, so why?

[Hook:]
So why do you keep on pretending, that everything is still okay?
Don't you still want the happy ending? Don't you still want to be with me?

[Chorus:]
What happened to the days we were in love? When nothing came between the two of us
I wanna go back to the way it was
Why can't we go back to the way it was?
Do you remember when we were still friends? Now every other day's another argument.
I wanna go back to the way it was
Why can't we go back to the way it was?

(Verse Two)

Slowly, without you here I'm dying so slowly
And I need you near cuz no one else knows me
Not the way you do
And I can't breathe without you here
(Its obvious I need you)
And you need me
(What are we gonna do?)
So baby why can't we...
(Why can't we work it out?)
Isn't that what love's about?

[Hook:]
So why do you keep on pretending, that everything is still okay?
Don't you still want the happy ending? Don't you still want to be with me?

[Chorus:]
What happened to the days we were in love? When nothing came between the two of us
I wanna go back to the way it was
Why can't we go back to the way it was?
Do you remember when we were still friends? Now every other day's another argument.
I wanna go back to the way it was
Why can't we go back to the way it was?

[Bridge:]
I'm tired (I'm sick and tired of fighting)
And inside (I'm dying)
I wanna do (Right by you)
By you (Girl what I'm saying is true)
I can't take losing you
Can we go back?

(Chorus 2X)
What happened to the days we were in love? When nothing came between the two of us
I wanna go back to the way it was
Why can't we go back to the way it was?
Do you remember when we were still friends? Now every other day's another argument.
I wanna go back to the way it was
Why can't we go back to the way it was?
