* 8-bar intro

* Verse 1 We had broken up for good just an hour before.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
Now I'm staring at the bodies
As they're dancing 'cross the floor.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah,
And then the band slowed the tempo and the music went down.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
It was the same old song with a melancholy sound.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write like that anymore.
They just don't write like that anymore.

We're nearly together for a million years.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah,
But now it feels so strange out in the atmospheres.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah,
And then the jukebox plays a song that I used to know.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah,
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing so slow.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write like that anymore.
They don't write like that anymore.

* 8-bar break

Now, a wine wolf's staring at an empty glass.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah,
'Cause it's so easy to say that you'll forget your past.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write like that anymore, no.
They just don't write like that anymore.
They don't write like that anymore.
They just don't write like that anymore.
They just don't, no they don't, no no, ah ah.
They just don't write like that anymore.
