Like You Used To 

There’s ill reason in the things we say and shout at one another 

when we’re three sheets to the wind and every word just pulls us under 

All the dirt we’ve piled upon our layers of decay 

Just love me darling, I think I can stay 


Love me like you used to do way back when 

Before the rug was pulled beneath your feet 

And you fell back in the saddle, left time standing still 

and put all your troubles right on me 


To say we’ve got your problems is an understated truth 

But in your times of clarity I found a light in you 

So when your skin is crawling and that light begins to fade 

Just love me darling, I think I can stay 


Love me like you used to do way back when 


If I could take your pain away you’d never have to try 

Maybe then, just maybe, we could lead a normal life 

Freedom has new meaning tied to your ball and chain 

Just love me darling, I think I can stay 


Chorus
