Merrily We Roll Along the Musical - Like It Was Lyrics


MARY
Charley,
Why can’t it be like it was?
I liked it the way that it was,
Charley —
You and me, we were nicer then.

We were nice,
Kids and cities and trees were nice,
Everything…
I don’t know who we are any more,
And i’m starting not to care.

Look at us, charley,
Nothing’s the way that it was.
I want it the way that it was —
Help me stop remembering then.

Don’t you remember?
It was good, it was really good.
Help me out, charley,
Make it like it was.

(spoken) Come on. It was so much better, charley. The three of us.

CHARLEY (spoken)
And you come on — we’re not the three of us any more, Mary.
Now we’re one and one and one.

MARY
Charley,
Nothing’s the way that it was.
I want it the way that it was.
God knows, things were easier then.

Trouble is, charley,
That’s what everyone does:
Blames the way it is
On the way it was —
On the way it never ever was.
