The Way It Was

The Way It Was

A Poem by Krista Weiss
"

This is a song about wishing nothing ever changed. Hope you like it! The hidden message is: What went wrong? <3

The Way It Was
Always making plans and then canceling,
Oh that was the game you played,
You wanted to be with me everyday through everything,
But with time, I guess your caring had slipped away,
Yeah I miss that guy,
Who would call me at day's end,
But that guy's gone,
And so are your feeling

What happened to that guy I used to know,
That I loved so long ago,
What happened to those sparks I used to feel,
When I knew that it was real,
What happened to the way that you kissed me,
Or the way that you missed me,
Did that disappear,
Like the longing in your eyes,
I want it back the way it was,
Before I lose my mind

Now that I'm thinking this through,
We really were a mess babe,
Cuz when Cupid shot his arrow,
I guess he missed his aim,
And no matter what the pain,
I know that it was for the best,
Cuz no matter how hard I tried,
You never would be impressed
Oh what happened to that guy I used to know,
That I loved so long ago,
What happened to those sparks I used to feel,
When I knew that it was real,
What happened to the way that you kissed me,
Or the way that you missed me,
Did that disappear,
Like the longing in your eyes,
I want it back the way it was,
Before I lose my mind
I wonder if that picture of me,
Is still somewhere on your phone,
From back when you,
Were the best thing I ever known,
All those sweet things you used to say,
Would always make my day,
But all of those were lies you shared,
When you said that you cared,
Cuz you were out of my life,
Just a month later
So what happened to that guy I used to know,
That I loved so long ago,
And what happened to those sparks I used to feel,
When I knew that it was real,
What happened to the way that you kissed me,
Or the way that you missed me,
Did that disappear,
Like the longing in your eyes,
I want it back the way it was,
Mm back the way it was,
I want it back the way it was,
Before I lose my mind <3

Author's Note

Krista Weiss
So as you could probably tell, this is a song about a relationship that somewhere down the road goes sour. It starts out perfect, but before you know it, the love gets lost along the way. You don't know how it happened, or why, but soon everything is over, even though you never wanted it to be. So all you can do is wish that it never happened, and wish that you could go back to the way it was.

Aww! Thanks so much! :) I can't wait too :P haha
This was amazing. Most people have been in this situation, I know I have. It's sooo hard when everything slips away all at once like that. :/ Great job on this, though! :)

Mmmmhm! True dat, honey! ;P And anytime:)
Very well written. It's unfortunate sometimes when relationships end yet in the long run it's best to just let go and move on towards a better one. Great work. It's a nice song. :)
