Barbra Streisand – Way We Were lyrics

Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures,
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? Could we?
Memries, may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember...
The way we were...
The way we were...

    First of all id like 2 say I'm a huge barbra streisand fan and probably her youngest fan cuz I'm 12 now my interpretation of the song is that she got a devorce with her husband and she misses him and the good times they had and how easy life was wen they were kids she misses the way they were and misses she could go back to wen they were happy.
