That Was Then

This song is by Jesse McCartney and appears on the album Beautiful Soul (2004).

Guess you never really know just what you've got
'till you finally realize she could be gone
I know that I've been taking you for granted
For the longest time

All you wanted was someone who really cares
And I didn't even notice you were there
I promise that I'll never ever make that same mistake
Not twice...

CHORUS
That was then...this is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do...

Is try again...show you how
I know that it's all about
Giving attention to you

I was a fool for way to long
What you wanted, but could not see
That was then...this is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need

Guess I never thought about it before
I was thinking of myself, and nothing more
Didn't even wanna try to find out
How you really feel

Now I see that I'm the lucky one, it's true
And what we've got you know I never want to lose
I was trippin' in a fantasy...
And missing what was real

That was then...this is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do...

Is try again...show you how
I know that it's all about
Giving attention to you

I was a fool for way to long
What you wanted, but could not see
That was then...this is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need

I used to be someone
Who only really thought about themselves
And no one else and you could tell baby
But that's before I understood
That when you've got something this good
Gotta let her know...
And I want you to know

You're always my priority
And I wanna give more that all the love you need
Took a little time...
But now you know I finally see
That you're my world

I never want our love to fade ready, willing...
And I'm gonna do whatever it takes
No, I'm never gonna let it slip away
'cause you're my girl

That was then...this is now
Took some time to come around
All I wanna do...

Is try again...show you how
I know that it's all about
Giving attention to you

I was a fool for way to long
What you wanted, but could not see
That was then...this is now
Took some time to figure out
Love is all you need
