used to be

used to be

i finally get it, excuse me for what all i'm not
when you do it so well, it's something to keep
you always had something special worth being got
when i do it my way, it's insulted as cheap

when you do it so well, it's something to keep
keep that i would, if it went better with mine
when i do it my way, it's insulted as cheap
used to be, yours and mine knew how to combine

keep that i would, if it went better with mine
when you do it so well, we know it as need
used to be, yours and mine knew how to combine
when i do it my way, it's thought of as greed

when you do it so well, we know it as need
need that i would, but i'd have to be there
when i do it my way, it's thought of as greed
used to be, yours and mine were hungry to share

need that i would, but i'd have to be there
when you do it so well, it's some exquisite word
used to be, yours and mine were hungry to share
when i do it my way, it's better off unheard

when you do it so well, it's some exquisite word
word i would dream, if i had the right head
when i do it my way, it's better off unheard
used to be, it went without being so unsaid

word i would dream, if i had the right head
when you do it so well, it's a perfect touch
used to be, it went without being so unsaid
when i do it my way, it's so nothing much

when you do it so well, it's a perfect touch
you always had something special worth being got
when i do it my way, it's so nothing much
i finally get it, excuse me for what all i'm not
