    I use to know you…way back then…
    Back when we use to be friends…
    When we were real tight…
    Had each others back when it was time to fight.

    I use to know you…way back then…
    Back when we had our old male friends…
    When we use to double date…
    And other chics would look at us and hate….

    I use to know you …way back then…
    Back when we struggled to make ends…
    When we use to share MC D’s….
    And at the movies…split the nachos and cheese….

    But now we are grown…
    Our college years are gone…
    And you moved…and I stayed
    But I had came here and you wanted to go away…

    You had your hardships…And I had mine…
    And somewhere in between…our friendship got left behind…
    Not to say we still ain’t tight…Cause you know…I still got yo
    Back if you got in a fight…
    But that was all a use to be….
    Our changes came separately…

    Our views on life…are looked at somewhat differently…
    But your still a good friend to me…just so much distance in between

    Some say can we go back to what we use to be…
    But with all that went on in between…
    Some things undone…some left unsaid…
    Promises broken…people mad…

    Can we start it from the here and now…
    I can try…just tell me how…
    All I can remember is how it use to be…
    Because all that really meant something to me…

    Cause I’m remembering what use to be….

    Bestfriends

    Yea I know. I met her in college. We was tight to def!!! LOL But she moved to Maryland and I was suppose to move back to Virginia...but my life didn't want to take me back there and I ended up staying here and well it went from there. We cool..but not like we use to be. Its funny...some things you just think are going to be forever...not saying that we still ain't friends now...It just won't ever be like it use to be.

    Thanks...It was just something i needed to get off my chest.

    Thanks

    And we still are? I actually sent her the email..she said was beautiful..:) yea..always...I never let a good friend go. Distance and time may space out our lives and space out or time spent together as friends. But it will not keep me from saying that she or any friend of mine is a good friend. And still is one!!! ;)
