Ok, for this particular piece you have to read this little summary.

(slightly different theme! woohoo!)

1. Boy is going away.
2. He asked if anyone would like for him to get them something while he was gone
3. This is what I would like

Bring me back the man you used to be
The one who liked me for what I used to be
Bring me back the man you once were
Where your words meant something, where they didn’t hurt.
Bring me back the man I know you are
The one who made me feel like a shining star.
Bring me back the man I used to love
The one who gave me compliments “just ‘cuz.”
Bring me back the girl I used to be
The one who was honest and open and free.
Bring me back the girl I once was
The one who was open to love.
Bring me back the girl I know I am
The one who was as innocent as the smallest of lambs.
Bring me back the girl I used to know
The one who wasn’t destroyed by your verbal blows.
Bring back the “us” and the “we”
Didn’t we used to mean something?
Bring back the “couple” and the “pair”
All the togetherness we used to share.
Bring back the “duo” and the “two”
Remember the fun things we planned to do?
Bring back the “I want you” and the hope of “I love you”
A hope now destroyed, but still may be true.
