Back in the day
When I was younger
I wasn't afraid
Of giving my heart to you

Now and again
I get sentimental
But I know it's just a phase I'm going through
And every time I start to slip

I just remind myself
I need only think of it
I went through so much hell

You say ya want to get things back
The way they used to be
Can you give me one good reason
Why should I darling

Why should I care
Why should I care for you
Why should I care
Why should I care for you
Why should I care
Why should I care for you
Why should I care
Why should I care

Back in the day
I should of been wiser
But what can I say
I should of been onto you
But I was afraid

That you'd break my heart in two
Fate would have it that you broke it anyway baby
And every time I close my eyes
I just remind myself

You told about a million lies
You put my heart through hell
And now you want to get with me
Just for old times sake
Well I am not about to make that same mistake


You see a girl that you gave all your love
I see a girl you took advantage of
You see a girl that you cannot forget
I see a man that I cannot forgive
Tell me why


Back in the day when I was young
I wasn't afraid to love
Back in the day
You were the one what was I thinking of

Back in the day
Should of been wiser
Should of been onto you
But I was afraid I make a mistake
No one knows
