Words spoken, my heart open,
No I never had butterflies like that,
We danced in the moon glow,
Your hands moved slow,
You kissed me on the lips,
Swore I wouldn't look back,
It was just like we were flying in another time,

I felt the world was ours for the taking,
When I fell into your eyes,
Never in doubt that we would make it if we tried,
You promised you'd never break my heart,
Never leave me in the dark,
Said your love would be for all time,
But that was back when you were mine,

When you were here with me,
I thought we'd be stronger than the past,
Better than the ones before,
How did I fool myself with thinking,
We had it all,

I felt the world was ours for the taking,
When I fell into your eyes,
Never in doubt that we would make it if we tried,
You promised you'd never break my heart, never leave me in the dark,
Said your love would be for all time,
But that was back when you were mine,
When you were

What if this was it baby,
What if this was our time,
Maybe we got a lot worth saving,
I'm gonna give you one try
Better think twice before you leave her behind,

What if the world was ours for the taking,
When I fell into your eyes,
Never in doubt that we would make it if we tried,
You promised you'd never break my heart, never leave me in the dark,
Said your love would be for all time,
But that was back when you were mine,
When we were in love,
Do you remember the time, when you were mine,

Oooh, that was back when you were mine,
What if this was it baby,
What if this was our time,
Back when we were in love,
Back when you were mine,
Back when you were mine,
Back when we were in love, in love,

You said you'd be there,
You said it'd last forever,
I guess you never really meant it baby,
Did you baby?

    I am feeling like this song is my life summed up in a word. Though, is there maybe a way i can change that. This song is about telling your love for someone, than for some reason they may do something that makes you question their love for you. Was it really the truth? Did they really love you and mean everything they said? Are they really in love with you? Can you still love them? ...
