It Didn't Used To Be This Way

the yelling
the screaming
It didn't used to be this way

He used to love me
He used to care
we got along
now my heart is just continually breaking
we never agree
it didn't used to be this way

we were a family
me and him
we used to laugh
now instead of laughing
I just cry
I didn't used to be this way
the smoking
the drinking
the choosing her over me
it didn't used to be this way

the outings we shared
the moments when I thought
nothing could tear us apart
it didn't used to be this way

things have changed
and while I know they will never be the same
I still have hope
But it didn't used to be this way
