WHERE WE WERE THEN

We had to wade through time and space 
Just to end up in this place 
Because so many miles and years ago 
We made each other go. 
And now we want to know 
Where we were then. 
 
So many times we tried to end 
This thing between us, but then  
So many people to whom we have said "No" 
Because of what we had before, 
And now we don't want more 
Than we had then. 
 
     Why must I cling to the past?  Why not let it go? 
     Baby, I don't know, but I'm touched by your time. 
     I remember loving you way back at the first 
     When you were the best and worst  
     Of all things on my mind. 
 
Of course, it can't be like it was, 
As if it could, you know, because 
We're just not who we were so long ago, 
We've both had time to grow. 
And we both know so much more 
Than we knew then. 
 
You know we're getting older, 
And the time for games is over, 
And it's time to be somebody who will stay 
And keep our love that way. 
It shall be better anyway 
Than it has then.

lyrics

 
   C                   F    Am  Dm 
We had to wade through time and space 
 
C              F  Am   Dm 
Just to end up in this place 
 
  C             F     Am  Dm   C-F 
Because so many miles and years ago 
 
   G         G7    C 
We made each other go. 
 
    F              C 
And now we want to know 
 
      F       C 
Where we were then. 
 
 
     G                G7 
     Why must I cling to the past?  
 
     F              C 
     Why not let it go? 
 
           F       C                     F  Am   Dm 
     Baby, I don't know, but I'm touched by your time. 
 
     G          G7         F               C 
     I remember loving you way back at the first 
  
     F                          C 
     When you were the best and worst  
                  
                   F  Am Dm 
     Of all things on my mind.
