Mary Chapin Carpenter
"What Was It Like"

What was it like

How did it feel

It's 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
