Back when we had nothing
That was when we had it all
We were so in love, it almost hurt
Now, you're staring at the T.V.
While I'm staring at the wall
And I'm hurting now - for the way we were

Chorus:

I liked it better when we had it bad
When a burning love was all we had
And every time we were apart
There was an aching in our hearts
Now that ain't the way things are
And it's so sad
I liked it better when we had it bad

I don't know how it happens
Why the passion has to fade
Remember when we said it never would
Won't you hold me like you used to
When you took my breath away
'Cause it ain't too late for us to feel that good

(Repeat Chorus twice)

I liked it better when we had it bad
