I got a song in my heart
Let me start with I'm over you
Still it can't hurt me to say
Every plain, I think about you

And the laughs and the jokes
And the times that I shared with you
Oh, you should remember

I've got this feeling for reminiscing
I wanted to take that trip down memory lane
What is missing is that you're not here
To sit down with me, no, no
So I'm thinking these beautiful things all by myself
And what's on my mind is

Back when it was
(Simple as breathing)
Just the two of us
We were happy together

It was easy to be in
Our relationship
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time to never go away, yeah
And now you're gone, gone

The smile that you left me with
Is the same smile I've kept on wearing
The smile's not so much tied to you
More tied to what we spent sharing

Simple little things
But it was all those simple little things
That pleased me the most

Oh, and I remind you 'bout the good times, baby
There were good times from the start
Good times in my heart
A heart that never lied

Remember back in '99
Oh, we snuck into the neighbor's pool and went for a dip
There were good times in the rain
Good times everyday

Good times heaven knows
Remember that dirty little joke
Made us laugh all night long

Back when it was
(Simple as breathing)
Just the two of us
We were happy together

It was easy to be in
Our relationship
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time never go away
And now you're gone, gone

The joy you left me with, nothing stronger since
What we did together
I ain't felt nothing better since that time

Those were the days, the nights
The hours, the minutes
The seconds that you were mine

Back when it was
(Simple as breathing)
Just the two of us
We were happy together

It was easy to be in
Our relationship
You remember when
When you used to say you loved me so
Baby, please [Incomprehensible]
Never go away
Now you're gone, gone
