Baker, Anita - When You Love Someone Lyrics

Were we ever, did we use it up too fast
Our great memonts never met to last
And the last thing that I want
Is to ever make your smile go away

Keep the momeries take the best of what we had
I can't stand to watch what once was great go bad
And if I can't be with you
Then I rather just remember what we knew

When you love someone
And you love them with your heart
And it does't disappear if you're apart

When you love someone
And you've done all you can do - you've done all you can
When you set them free
And if that love is true
When you love someone
It will all come back to you

Nights I wondered was I too much that we gave
If we gave in more could we have both been saved

And I guess we have crossed the line
Never knowing what was yours
And what was mine


And through it all, I still have no regrets
Just promise me - promise me
You never will forget - you never will forget

When you love someone
And you have done all you can do
And you set them free and if that love is true
If you love someone, it will all come back to you

    I was just at Anita Baker's concert last Friday. She was absolutely amazing!! She's my favorite Song Bird. But... coming to this video only to find out today that James Ingram is no longer with us... Crushed my soul. I didn't know. He's been one of my favorites since I was a kid. James Ingram is a legend... I can't believe this world didn't celebrate him more. Rest easy my friend. Your music will continue to live through me.

    Anyone here after the passing of James Ingram? 🇿🇦


    I just did, TODAY. 2 weeks late. How the hell am I finding out now? Never saw anything on tv or heard anything on the radio. I'm so sad. His music was powerful& his ballads got me through some hard break ups. This sucks. R.I.P., James. You are an R & B legend in my eyes, heart, & soul.

    mercy triumps

    He was a real icon in the truest meaning of the word.


    @mercy triumps & he had talent & a great voice, leaps & bounds over the past r & b singers from the 90's & milennium that won 1 or 2 grammy's..then you don't heard from them anymore. James had "staying" power & proved it.

    Nalyna Nadz

    What?! 😱😱He passed?! What are you saying? My heart 😥😥😥😔😔

    Alexander Stefanov

    Sad news it was

    "When you love someone and you love them with your heart and it doesn't dissappear if you're apart... When you love someone and you've done all you can do then you set them free and if that love is true... When you love someone it will all come back to you"... Love you James rest easy now my good brother. ❤🙏
