lyrics

I see 'em sitting at a table, they're right in front of me
Her chin is on his shoulder, he's got his hand upon her knee
I came to hear the band begin and, maybe, find some company
But, as I sit and watch this scene unfold, I'm attacked by memory

I can see desire burning as she stares into his eyes
And, though he tries to play it cool, I know he feels the same inside
I remember countless barrooms, countless tables where we sat
And, I wonder did we used to look like that?
Yeah, I wonder did we used to look like that?

You never told me, Darling, when it all began to fade
But, I don't forget the friends we had and the plans that we all made
We don't talk that much no more, I wonder did we let them down?
And, i wish that I could tell them, Darling, why you're not around anymore...

I'm driving down the avenue, and right in front of me
I see a couple in a car, I see him slam the steering wheel
It looks like she is crying and it looks like he is mad
And, I wonder did we used to look like that?
Well, I suppose it's true we used to look like that

I still don't know what happened
It still feels so incomplete
When we met and when you left, both times
You knocked me off my feet
And, I suppose you were unsatisfied, but I'm trying to understand
How we ever let ourselves end up like that
'Cause I never thought that we could look like that
But, I suppose it's true we used to look like that
