It Happened Long Ago

Here I am thinking 'bout the past again
How come it always rushes in
That same ol' girl who gave me a whirl
Is making me think back again
Of all the times we were together
And all the times that we were friends
Sometimes it's hard to live without her
Sometimes it's funny how it ends

Could it be that love ran the distance
Or maybe it just slipped away
It's hard to call for re-assistance
When you don't know what to say

So just hang it up, quit thinking 'bout her
Hang it up and let it go, you tried your best
It didn't work out, besides it happened long ago

There's certain times when I'm all alone
That's when she comes creeping in
It's just the past I can't get rid of
I think it's happening again
Those days of old when we were lovers
Those days we made the world stand still
When we were young, just discovered
One look from you and I was filled

Could it be love ran the distance
Or maybe it just slipped away
It's hard to call for re-assistance
When you don't know what to say
You just can't find away

So just hang it up, quit thinking 'bout her
Hang it up and let it go, you tried your best
It didn't work out, besides it happened long ago

I can't forget no matter what I do
It all comes back just like that autumn moon

Here I am thinking 'bout the past again
How come it always rushes in
Sometimes it hard to live without her
Sometimes it's funny how it ends

So just hang it up, quit thinking 'bout her
Hang it up and let it go, you tried your best
It didn't work out, besides it happened long ago

I Know It Happened Long Ago...
