Used To Be

J.C. Ashbaker © 9/2007

I saw Merry and I saw Joan
And I felt the love for him on his journey back home
But I want to cry, and I wonder why
It's so hard to smile, when you say goodbye

I saw Tony and I saw Jim
Tell a story and we laughed about him
Yeah, it's been a while, since those days went by
And it's hard to laugh, but it made me smile

Used to be, used to be
All of you and all of me
Long ago, long ago
So far away, it's hard to know
Are you still you, Am I still me
Was this all real or a memory

I saw love and I saw loss
Often wondered where (why) the two of these must cross
'Cause it's in disguise, yeah it's in the sky
But it's made smile and it's made me cry
Now I think I'll laugh, from down deep inside

---Repeat Chorus---

I saw Merry and I saw Joan
But I can't go back and I can't go home
Was I left behind, am I on my own
I don't feel the fear of the great unknown
And it's plain to see that I'm not alone
Yeah we can all relax, 'cause we're not alone
