Make a left on Memory Lane

Heather Headley - Back When It Was



Y'all member back in the days you know the brothers used to be standing on the street corners doing that little shoo wop and back then it didn't really matter if you could sing or not.
Everybody could shoo wop
~
I got a song in my heart
Let me start with I'm over you
Still it can't hurt me to say very plain ... I think about you
And the laughs and the jokes and the times that I shared with you.
I got this feeling for reminiscing
Wanted to take that trip down memory lane
But what is missing, is that you're not here to sit down with me
So I'm thinking these beautiful things all by myself.
And what's on my mind is...
~
Back when it was
Simple as breathing
Just the two of us
We were happy together it was
Easy to be in
Our relationship,
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time to never go away
And now you're gone
~
The smile that you left me with, is the same smile I've kept on wearing
The smile's not so much tied to you
More tied to what we spent sharing
Simple little things
But it was all those simple little things that pleased me the most...
Need I remind you 'bout the good times baby
There were good times from the start
Good times in my heart
A heart that never lied
Remember back in '99.
When we snuck into the neighbor's pool and went for a dip
There were good times in the rain
Good times everyday
Good times Heaven knows
Remember that dirty little joke
Made us laugh all night long.

Back when it was
Simple as breathing
Just the two of us
We were happy together it was
Easy to be in
Our relationship,
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time to never ever go away
And now you're gone
~
The joy you left me with, nothing stronger since
What we did together
I ain't felt nothing better since that time
Those were the days
The nights
The hours
The minutes
The seconds
That you were mine - all mine
~
Back when it was
Simple as breathing
Just the two of us
We were happy together it was
Easy to be in
Our relationship,
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
baby please forgive me
I'm taking a trip down memory lane right now
And with this shoo wop baby
I'm tellin you that
where ever you are
I hope it's alright for you baby
I hope somebody's treatin you right
And if I should cross your mind now
don't be shy
go up and tell a little shoo wop back from the days
