Like you used to do
by Steven Clotzman

Pistol shots in the pouring rain
I’m starting to believe we’ll never be the same
I’m not sure baby where you’ve been
But drinking and thinking, they don’t make good friends
Yeah, I’m bleeding, I feel half dead
And can’t figure how I got this bump on my head
You say it all ‘cause I’ve been untrue
Oh, why can’t you do me like you used to do?
Why can’t you do me like you used to do?

Room’s a’spinnin’, it feels strange
Maybe it’s sign, you say, that something’s changed
But empty bottles strewn across the floor
Isn’t anything you haven’t seen before.
OK, she’s done with and that’s a fact
Not much anyone can do to bring her back
And I can explain if you want me to
Why can’t you do me like you used to do?
Why can’t you do me like you used to do?

Forget those voices in your head
Maybe you should listen to your heart instead
So you’re not blind, baby, to what you see
But does that mean you have to point that thing at me?

You know sometimes every now and then
I get to thinking about way back when
The sweetest kisses were all we had
Yet, the world and its problems didn’t seem so bad
But time is short, you say, and running fast
Why can't the best things never seem to last?
You know, you get mean baby when you’re blue
Why can’t you do me like you used to do?
Why can’t you do me like you used to do?
