Do you ever stop to think
How you make me feel
When I’m near you?
Do you ever remember or reflect
On the way we were
When love was new?
Once upon a time,
You couldn’t wait to see me.
I couldn’t wait to be with you.
Where once there showed sweet affection,
Now all I see is irritation.
Once, nothing else mattered,
No one else existed.
Our world held nothing but you and me.
