I've been looking for years for this song that used to be played in the mall vey often.
It's by a a female vocalist, I think african- american but not sure, the genre is R & B, and it's a slow and beautiful song.
the words in the chorus sound like :
"and it will never be the way it was..." or maybe " and if he'll ever be the way he was, it's just because..." (she goes to high tones at this point)
and then it goes " to bring you back, to bring you back...", but of course i'm almost positive that those are not the right words.
if you know the answer please let me know, it drives me nuts for years and google won't help!
