I remember how it used to be,
When nothing else mattered but you and me.
I miss you, I wish you could see me now.
I remember when you said how happy I made you and you really meant it.
I miss those days when you’d call just to say “hi” or “I love you”.
The days it was so hard just to say goodbye for a while.
I remember how wonderful it felt the first time you held me in your arms.
I miss the old us and how we could talk for hours without running out of things to say.
I miss us as I remember how it used to be, when nothing else mattered but you and me.
