It wasn't very long ago
I met you I saw you
It wasn't very long ago
You whispered, “I love you”

Look at us now
Crying our hearts out through the night
Trying to remember what love was like
Although

It wasn't very long ago
I thrilled when I kissed you
It wasn't very long ago
I cried when I missed you

Look at us now
Crying our hearts out through the night
Trying to remember what love was like
Although it wasn't very long ago

Look, look my eyes aren't shining with love
And they won't
Look I'm not crying 'cause I need you
I'm crying 'cause I don't, oh

It wasn't very long ago
You held me so closely
It wasn't very long ago
I dreamed of you mostly

Look us now
Crying at hearts out through the night
Trying to remember what love was like
Although it wasn't very long ago

It wasn't very long ago
It wasn't very long ago
Not so very long ago
