Jesse Mccartney – That Was Then lyrics

Guess you never really know
Just what you've got
'Til you finally realize
She could be gone
I know that I've been taking you for granted
For the longest time
All you wanted
Was someone who really cares
And I didn't even
Notice you were there
I promise that I'll never ever
Make that same mistake not twice

That was then
This is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do
Is try again
Show you how
I know that it's all about
Givin' attention to you
I was a fool for way too long
What you wanted, I could not see
That was then
This is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need

Guess I never really thought about it before
I was thinkin' of myself
And nothing more
Didn't even wanna try to find out
How you really feel (how you really feel)
Now I see
That I'm the lucky one
It's true
And what we've got
To know I never want to lose
I was trippin' in a fantasy
And missing what was real

That was then
This is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do
Is try again
Show you how
I know that it's all about
Givin' attention to you
I was a fool for way too long
What you wanted, I could not see
That was then
This is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need

I used to be someone
Who only really thought about
Themselves and no one else
And you could tell baby
But that's before
I understood
That when you've
Got something this good
Gotta let her know
And I want you to know

You're always my priority
And I wanna give you more
Than all the love you need
Took a little time
But now you know I finally see
That you're my world (yeah)

I never want our love to fade ready, willing
And I'm gonna do whatever it takes
No I'm never gonna let it all slip away
'Cause you're my girl, yes you are

That was then
This is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do
Is try again
Show you how
I know that it's all about
Givin' attention to you
I was a fool for way too long
What you wanted, I could not see
That was then
This is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need

You're always my priority
And I wanna give you more
Than all the love you need
Took a little time
But now you know I finally see
That you're my world (yes you are)

I never want our love to fade ready, willing
And I'm gonna do whatever it takes
No I'm never gonna let it all slip away
'Cause you're my girl, yes you are

That was then
This is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do
Is try again
Show you how
I know that it's all about
Givin' attention to you
I was a fool for way too long
What you wanted, I could not see
That was then
This is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need

Comin' around
And ready to show you how
I'm gonna change girl
