What was it like, how did it feel
So hard to tell if it was real
I know I was there
But with every day it slips away

And I feel like a passing glance
That you never gave a chance
Baby that's not right
What was it like

What did you say, what did I hear
When did it start to disappear
I know you were there, you know that too
What did we do

'Cause I feel like a big mistake
That you managed to not quite make
And just walk away
What did you say

Guess I've waited long enough
Hoping it might be something
Other than what it was

You took something that felt so good
And crushed it because you could
One summer night
What was it like
What was it like
What was it like
