I close my eyes and try to sleep
I count the tears I cry instead of counting sheep.
The summer's gone and left the rain with me
And if this is love, it's not all it's cracked up to be
And I'm telling you this much for free,
Things ain't what they used to be
With my girl and me.

I walk alone through stormy nights
Longing for company, it don't seem right somehow
To love so much, and hurt so desperately.
Maybe I should leave, but it seems like we're caught between
The devil and the deep blue sea,
Things ain't what they used to be
With my girl and me.

Hold on, how long can I wait
For these feelings to go away.
Where is it now? Where did it go?
Does she really love me, I'll never know.

Those words of love come tumbling down,
Just like the winter's snow, and the dreams we never found
I light a fire to warm a lonely heart.
Living in the past, I've tried oh but honestly
I just can't shake the memory,
Thinking how it used to be
With my girl and me.

I've tried but honestly I just can't shake the memory,
Thinking how it used to be
With my girl and me.
It's not the way it used to be

Can't forget the way it used to be
(A love so high should never fall)
(But then it's much too late for words to work at all)
My girl...
My girl...
