Amerie - Like It Used To Be Lyrics




Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ....

Our love what we once treasured
Your ways what I remember most of all
Can't quite get away from the days we love so heavenly
Your kiss such a sweet surrender
That day when I let my temper get the best of what we used to have
Now I got to ask you can you make it

[Chorus]
Like it used to be
Bring back your love to me
I remember when our love was new
And all I needed in my life was you
And baby it felt so right to me
Please make it like it used to be

Now I won't usually pass (?) nobody
But why can't overses (?) so hastily
Before God had forgiven me
Thought the love that we had count for anything else
Only one way to find out how and you know how

[Chorus 2x]

Ohhh, don't wanna lose your love
And I can't stand to lose your touch
Ohhh, I can still remember when our love was strong
But I don't know where we went wrong

[Chorus]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah .....

  25. Syrika Powell

    I can listen to Amerie albums from beginning to end Beyoncé not so much she may be talented but her music does nothing for me.

    Percy Sherrod

    +Syrika Powell why do u have to post up amerie and put down bey...they both are great in their own right

    Syrika Powell

    +Percy Sherrod I dont like beyonce style of.music not over monica not ocer brandy not over Total not over SWV nor monifah sorry..she not all that to me.

    Percy Sherrod

    @Syrika Powell see...not that's PERSONAL....I have never purchased a beyonce album in my life but I STILL recognize greatness...she is an entertainer and they don't call her queen for nothing....but u are entitled to your opinion....but anytime an artist puts out a SURPRISE album with NO promotions AND IT SELLS OUT IN ONE DAY THEN.......................................numbers don't lie sweetie

    Syrika Powell

    And I care about her music because, again I am from the 80's and Beyonce is just a performer, in which I prefer Janet or Ciara over any day.  Yeah she has a nice voice but I can care about who sells what, its about who I am listening to late at night in the morning and for years to come sorry boo beyonce aint it..try arguing with someone who gives a shit. Thanks 

    Syrika Powell

    And my first comment was directed to someone asking why ppl put her down, well she aint bad but she aint in my category. 

  26. SherylAnj Pugh

  37. Songstressat19

    This song is sooooooooooo awesome this is why Amerie is one of my Top artists i just wish everybody else would see it that way

  45. wildjuniper1

    Oh and cant forget 1 thing, that was another favorite. With this cd you have a new favorite each time you listen to it. ok no more comments :)

  46. wildjuniper1

    This song and Can We Go featuring Carl Thomas i think were wat i listened to mostly. But The Whole CD, is Bomb.

  47. wildjuniper1

    I gotta get this album again my other one was damaged. Her best in my opionion. Theres always a certain feeling i get when i listen to her music. Her style is in a league of its own, you can't compare her to anyone else. I remember this cd came out around the same time as lyfe jennings, i had purchased them both at the same same. I was really listening to some good music then.

  48. wildjuniper1

    I loved this album, and this song i played it repeatedly.

  49. nubianbeauty_

  51. bleudiamonds

    @mellotv Thank you for reassuring me that they're sane people on Youtube ^_^ Kudos to you

  52. onelinkarmy

    @magicafterdark true. beyonce is just a PR product, like iPhone. Amerie is talented.

  53. Justin Nieves

    I agree Amerie is so underrated! I f you like A then you should def check out Teedra Moses

  54. Junior Djan

    The arrangements are amazing

  55. Deezy94

    While Amerie don't have the singing chops of Beyonce, her talent IS there and uniquely combined with the efforts of Rich on this and her 1st albums. She needs to reunite with him as her 1st 2 projects were REALLY good, and didn't get the credit they deserved!
