Stephen Duffy & The Lilac Time – We Used To Be So lyrics

Early one morning, the sun was shining
I sang your song as you lay crying
Do you believe that I’m not trying?

You didn’t ask for me to wake you
Nor did you think that this would break you
How long I wondered would it take you
To walk away

Oh, and if you go
I don’t know if I can carry on
What went wrong?
We used to be so

Have you read of 'Fitzgerald's descent'?
Have you seen' Eat the Document'?
I know you’ve heard Tim Hardin’s lament
Haven’t you?

Well, I’m through with living on eight percent
I don’t want to wonder where life went
You and me, honey, we were meant
To say we do

Oh, and if you go
I don’t know if I can carry on
What went wrong?
We used to be so

I woke up the day the day you went away
Wishing that I was dead
If you make it through
And I pray to god you do
Forget everything I said

We used to be so
