I used to be happy
I used to be
Such a loving man
I used to be
That was before
The end of my world
That was before
The end of my world
She used to be happy
She used to be
Such a loving woman
She used to be
That was before
The end of her world
That was before
The end of her world
We used to be happy
We used to be
Such a loving people
We used to be
That was before
The end of our world
That was before
The end of our world
