Maureen Mcgovern – The Way We Were/where Do You Start? lyrics

Can... it be that it was all so simple then Or
has time rewritten every line If?
we had the chance to do it all again Tell,
me would, we Could,
we Where...

do you start How?
do you separate the present from the past How?
do you deal with all the things you thought would last That
didn't last With?
bits of mem'ries scattered here and there I,
look around and don't know where to start Which

books are yours Which?
tapes and dreams belong to you and which are mine Our?
lives are tangled like the branches of a vine That
intertwine So
many habits that we'll have to break And
yesterdays we'll have to take apart One

day there'll, be a song Or
something in the air again To
catch me by surprise And
you'll be there again A
moment in - What
might have been Where....

do you start Do?
you allow yourself a little time to cry Or,
do you close your eyes and kiss it all goodbye I?
guess you try And
though I don't know where and don't know when I'll
find myself in love again I
promise there will always be A
little place no one will see A:
tiny part deep in my heart That
stays in love with you
