Carly Simon – Back The Way (Girls' Point Of View) lyrics

(Carly Simon)

Back the way it was before
Before the heart was broken
Playing hookey, making cookies
We were always jokin?
Back the way it used to be
Talks didn't end in a quarrel
Everything seemed so normal
Back the way it was before

But now the limo pulls up to the door
And she gets in
She calls bye, bye honey
Here is some money
I forgot the groceries

Back the way it was before
The chicken pox was easy
We told each other everything
And nobody was nosey
Back the way it used to be
When we were a happy family
Nobody ever asked us
If we wanted tiny little sandwiches
Sent up to our room
