Way Back When
Brenda Russell Lyrics


Way back when I saw magic
You can blame it all
On your friends and your companions
I knew you way back when
I knew you too, yeah

No disappointing
You are my favorite
I knew you had it in
You do be a success in life
A sensation
You can blame it all
On big city stimulation

But I knew you when
The small town attraction
Baby, you can't pretend
You don't need the reaction
Sophisticated friends
Now fill your moment
(Way back when)

Way back when I, I saw magic
You can blame it all
On your friends and your companions
But I knew you when
I knew you too, yeah

No disappointing end
You are my favorite, yes, you are
(Way back when)
I knew you too, yeah, baby
(Way back when)
'Cause you are my friend
(Way back when)
I know you too, yeah

I knew when
I know you too, yes, I do, baby
Oh, oh, oh
I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it
Oh yeah, oh

(Way back when)
(Way back when)
I know you too, yeah
(Way back when)
Baby
I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it

(Way back when)
(Way back when)
Way back when

Damn. This track is so musically cerebral, yet so beautiful. Brenda Russell is so underrated as a songwriter.

Angel Murphey

Brenda Russell is not underrated just because you are just now hearing of her.

Therone Evans

The arrangement on this song is amazing, the classical strings in the background, the synthesizer, the beat, the flow of the music, amazing!

Charles Alston

YES!!!

jeff waghorn

A new find for me a class song

The Real Alice Snow

Love this album.Sophistication at it’s finest.She wrote for many artist and as we can see she carried her own beautifully .love you girl....

Greg Lites

Not only the greatest debut album ever made, its one of the greatest r&b albums of all time. 8 songs, all could have been released as singles. (For those that don't know - she's singing this song about Al Jeroue, the love of her life at that time.)

Barbara Knight

You are so correct 💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞 All 8
