“That Was Then, This Is Now” Lyrics

You always say you like my style
You say I’m tough and kind of wild
Am I too much for you to take?
I swear this time, it’s not a game

I’ve known a lot of girls
No, this I won’t deny
I’ll give our love, I’ll give it more than a try

That was then, this is now (That was then)
Let me prove my love, girl (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
I’ll make you proud
I never made this kind of vow (Never made)
But that was then and this is now (Ooh)

I’ve led a thousand lives, it seems
There’s been a lot of broken dreams
My mind has just swept love aside
You’ve broke me down, put me wise

I doubted all compassion
But you showed me the score
I don’t doubt it, I can’t doubt it no more

That was then, this is now (That was then)
Let me prove my love, girl (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
I’ll make you proud
I never made this kind of vow (Never made)
But that was then, this is now

[break]

I’ve known a lot of girls
This I won’t deny
I’ll give our love, I’ll give it more than a try

That was then, this is now (That was then)
Let me prove my love, girl (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
I’ll make you proud
I never made this kind of vow (Never made)
But that was then, this is now
That was then, this is now
That was then, this is now, ah-ah-ah
