The Way It Was
The Killers Lyrics


I drove through the desert last night
I carried the weight of our last fight
Elvis singing "don't be cruel"
And I wonder if you feel it too
It's like we're going under

Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda county line
The question of my heart came to my mind

If I go on
With you by my side
Can it be
The way it was
When we met
Did you forget all about those golden nights?

Maybe a thief stole your heart
Or maybe we just drifted apart
I remember driving
In my daddy's car to the airfield
Blanket on the hood, backs against the windshield
Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust
That paradise is buried in the dust

If I go on
With you by my side
Can it be
The way it was
When we met
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
(The way it was)

All of our plans have fallen through
Sometimes a dream, it don't come true

Darling!
Darling!

If we go on
Can it be (can it be)
The way it was
When we met
Did you forget all about them golden nights?

If I go on
With you by my side
Can it be
The way it was
My heart is true
Girl, it's just you
I'm thinking of
Can it be the way it was?

Maybe a thief stole your heart

I drove through the desert last night
I carried the weight of our last fight
Elvis singing "don't be cruel"
And I wonder if you feel it too
It's like we're going under

Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda county line
The question of my heart came to my mind

If I go on
With you by my side
Can it be
The way it was
When we met
Did you forget all about those golden nights?

Maybe a thief stole your heart
Or maybe we just drifted apart
I remember driving
In my daddy's car to the airfield
Blanket on the hood, backs against the windshield
Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust
That paradise is buried in the dust

If I go on
With you by my side
Can it be
The way it was
When we met
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
(The way it was)

All of our plans have fallen through
Sometimes a dream, it don't come true

Darling!
Darling!

If we go on

The way it was
When we met
Did you forget all about them golden nights?

If I go on
With you by my side

The way it was
My heart is true
Girl, it's just you
I'm thinking of
Can it be the way it was?

Maybe a thief stole your heart

I drove through the desert last night.
I carried the weight of our last fight.
Elvis singing Dont be Cruel and I wonder
If you feel it too, its like were going under.
Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda county line,
The question of my heart came to my mind.
If I go on with you (by my side), can it be the way it was when we met?
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
Maybe a thief stole your heart, or maybe we just drifted apart.
I remember driving in my daddys car to the airfield,
Blanket on the hood, backs against the windshield.
Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust
That paradise is buried in the dust.

If I go on with you by my side can it be the way it was when we met?
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
(The way it was, it was.)
All of our plans are falling through.
Sometimes a dream, it dont come true.
Darling, darling,
(If we go on can it be)
Can it be the way it was when we met?
Did you forget all about them golden nights?
If I go on with you (by my side) can it be the way it was?
My heart is true, girl, its just you Im thinking of.
Can it be the way it was?
(Maybe a thief stole your heart)

I drove through the desert last night. 
I carried the weight of our last fight. 
Elvis singing ‘Don’t be Cruel’ and I wonder if you feel it too. 
It’s like we’re going under. 

Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda County line, 
The question of my heart came to my mind: 
If I go on with you by my side, 
Can it be the way it was when we met? 
Did you forget all about those golden nights? 

Maybe if thieves stole your heart or maybe we just drifted apart. 
I remember driving in my daddy’s car to the airfield, 
Blanket on the hood, backs against the windshield. 
Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust. 
That paradise is buried in the dust. 

If I go on with you by my side, 
Can it be the way it was when we met? 
Did you forget all about those golden nights? 
(The way it was, it was.) 
All of our plans are falling through. 
Sometimes a dream, it don’t come true. 

Darling. Darling 
(If we go on can it be) 
Can it be the way it was when we met? 
Did you forget all about them golden nights? 
If I go on with you by my side, 
Can it be the way it was? 
My heart is true. 
Girl, it’s just you I’m thinking of. 
Can it be the way it was? 
(Maybe thieves stole your heart.)
