The way we were

  
Memories light the corners of my mind

Misty water-colored memories of the way we were

Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind

Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line

And if we had the chance to do it all again

Just tell me, tell me, would we, would we?

Could we, could we?

Memories may be beautiful and yet

So many memories too painful to remember

The way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then

Or has time rewritten every line (or has time rewritten)

And if we had the chance to do it all again

Tell me would we, would we?

Ah could we, could we?
