Your initial reply hit me undercover
When I lost my head to it
It was out of it's time, it was undiscovered
As I caught my breath again
You were running out of lies to keep me under
Afraid of your back hands (?)
So to speak, you had me shaking at the knees

But I don't know the way out of this mess
No, I don't know the way out of this mess
And if you would've seen me at my best
Would it have changed anything at all?

Remember when - we never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this

The door was always open
But still not nearly enough to let me in
And my eyes are wide awake,
And I can see you clearly, but you don't stand out one bit.
I was always loud enough just for you to hear me
You never caught the wind
Now watch me break
Breakdown this time, this time again

But I don't know the way out of this mess
No, I don't know the way out of this mess
And if you would've seen me at my best
Would it have changed anything at all?

Remember when - we never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
(When times were better, when times were better than this [x2])

And I'm still waiting for a sign
Or just a win-win situation
Can I hear it one more time?
Without the sound of devastation setting in

Your initial reply hit me undercover
When I lost my head to it
It was out of it's time, it was undiscovered
When you let me in
Oh, won't you let me in?

Remember when - we never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this

Do you remember, remember when?
Do you remember, remember when?
We never had to remember when times were better
When times were better than this
(When times were better, when times were better than this [x2])

    To me, this song suggests that two people are together, and they are in a very tough spot, and they have to remember when they were happy together, not always sad or fighting.
