“Get It Back” by Whitney Houston Lyrics

Remember when
It all began
We were all in love
Then came the friends
Telling you when
Your time for me was good enough
I constantly
Had to compete
With your crew and their schemes
Remembering
Back in the day
I used to mean everything

To the way it used to be
(My only wish would be that)
Nothing would change for you and me
(I remember how it was)
And I know that for a fact
(We were oh so deep in love)
If we could just get it back

Now tell me why
So many nights
You had so much to do
When you said bye
Sometimes I tried
I tried to make you choose
Now tell me how
You can allow
You boys to control
The time we shared
It was unfair
But now you need to know

That I’m moving on
(Boy what would you do)
Things just ain’t the same
(We were supposed to)
Conquer everything yeah
(Boy let me tell you)
You’ve got to make a change

To the way it used to be
(My only wish would be that)
Nothing would change for you and me
(I remember how it was)
And I know that for a fact
(We were oh so deep in love)
If we could just get it back

To the way it used to be
(My only wish would be that)
Nothing would change for you and me
(I remember how it was)
And I know that for a fact
(We were oh so deep in love)
If we could just get it back
