about

I wrote this song in New York City with Grammy Award winning producer, Jimmy Bralower in his basement studio a few years back. My relationship at the time was falling apart, and I was trying to find a job, so I was having a bit of a rough time. Jimmy called me that day to come to the studio and ‘Whatever Happened To Our Love?’ was born.

Originally the song had a slower, more melancholy vibe, but after a period of reflection, I had no regrets on how things turned out. I did a little re-write on the lyrics and the song naturally evolved into this new and funky version.

Time is a great teacher and it taught me that sometimes breaking up with someone can be a blessing in disguise so I decided to give the track some positive energy.”

Really hope it brings you joy and good vibes!

Love and light,
~Acantha

lyrics

We had a thing
That old movie love
Ya hold on tight
Ya couldn't get enough
But things been changin’
(Mmmmmm)
Ya kiss me in the morning
That look in your eyes
My favorite coffee
Just to see me smile
But things been changin’
(Mmmmmm)

You used to hold me like that
You used to touch me like that baby
And I want it all back
Yeah baby baby
Makes me wonder
Whatever happened to our love?
Oh yeah (Mmm)

Same ole thing
Yeah I know the score
I've played these games
I got the scars to show
(Oooo) you've been changin’
Oh (Mmmmmm)
We've gone cold
Yeah it's plain to see
There's nothing left
And you blamin’ me
Said I've been changin’
Oh! (Oooo)

You used to hold me like that
You used to touch me like that baby
And I want it all back
Yeah baby baby
Makes me wonder
Whatever happened to our love?
Oh yeah yeah (Mmm)
You used to look at me like that
Yeah, you used to kiss me like that baby
And I want it all back
Yeah, baby baby
Makes me wonder
Whatever happened to our love?
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

Daydreaming
Look back in time
Swore on our rings
A love sublime
I held my breath
Oh, it’s such a shame
Don't you know
I'd do anything
I'd do anything
Oh, I wanna know
Where did we go wrong?

Come on and hold me like that
Yeah, touch me like that baby
Yeah bring it all back
(Ooo) baby baby
It makes me wonder
Whatever happened to our love?
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Come on and look at me like that
Yeah, kiss me like that baby
Yeah bring it all back
(Ooo) baby baby
It makes me wonder
Oh, whatever happened to our love?
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, come and hold me like that
Yeah, touch me like that baby
Yeah bring it all back
(Ooo) baby baby
