It's been this many years
It's been that many years
And still have to ask the same question
Why?

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When you and me would kiss at night
Remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Funny me, funny you
Don't have nothing lft in common
You wanted me to have your heart
Now you want it back
What about the promise you made to me
That you wouldn't trade the key in for no damn reason
And suddenly we're flying high
Now it's Mayday we're falling fast
You're trying to get lost
I'm trying to pull up
And damn I can't say
You said you didn't need me
I really didn't think that you would leave me

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When you and me would kiss at night
Remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Now the kids are looking at me like I'm to blame
No longer got their respect for me
Don't want to hear what I'm saying
I know how it feels to be ashamed
Cause when I was young I felt that pain too
And I can't say nothing that would cause you to make a change
And that's the reason that we're going our separate ways
Then who am I fooling
What am I doing thinking you love me

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When you and me would kiss at night
Remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

You would think by this time I would get it right
Know the schemes and the things that make it be right
When you said you could stay no longer
I thought I had just a little more daylight
LIke when we use to turn a fight into a good night
I know the things I use to do to make you feel right
I would give anything the fortune I made
To bring back the days that the feeling was so right

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When you and me would kiss at night
Remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When you and me would kiss at night
Remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life
Why don't it feel like felt on the first night
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why the dreams we had we threw them all away
Why the dreams we had we let them slip away
