Hill, Lauryn - I Used To Love Him Lyrics




As I look at what I've done
The type of life that I've lived
How many things I pray the father will forgive
One situation involved a young man
He was the ocean and I was the sand
He stole my heart like a thief in the night
Dulled my senses blurred my sight

I used to love him but now I don't
I used to love him but now I don't

I chose a road of passion and pain
Sacrificed too much and waited in vain
Gave up my power ceased being queen
Addicted to love like the drug of a fiend

Torn and confused wasted and used
Reached the crossroad which path would I choose
Stuck and frustrated I waited, debated
For something to happen that just wasn't fated
Thought what I wanted was something I needed
When momma said no I just should have heeded
Misled I bled till the poison was gone
And out of the darkness arrived the sweet dawn

I used to love him but now I don't
I used to love him but now I don't

Father you saved me and showed me that life
Was much more than being some foolish man's wife
Showed me that love was respect and devotion
Greater than planets deeper than oceans
My soul was weary but now it's replenished
Content because that part of my life is finished

I see him sometimes and the look in his eye
Is one of a man who's lost treasures untold
But my heart is gold I took back my soul
And totally let my creator control
The life which was his to begin with

I used to love him but now I don't
[Repeat to end]

    Str8 classic

  10. Matias Talavera

    Wow, incredible, amazing song... being astounded right now while listening to this from Argentina.

  11. bee boo boo bop

    This whole song is about the Goddess who let a romantic flame take advantage of her and control her. Forced amnesia and demoting her actual place in the universe. She waits for him as like a savior to no avail. She debates and takes her own life to regain her mind and supreme authority. And leaves him to ruin. Passion is nothing without actual regard and high esteem.

  12. Nadine Whitlow

    Very deep 👍

  13. Terrance Jones

    CONTENT BECAUSE THAT PART OF MY LIFE IS FINISHED!

  14. Alisa Taylor

  54. Tanya T any topic is good with me, versatility

    This album is amazing

  55. Lashia Daniels

    This so g gives me power. God is a forgiving God. Everyone experiences giving themselves to the wrong person. But it's important that you learn from it and do better. Most importantly it is about finding your true identity and loving yourself. Being alone and having your own mind and soul is better than being a foolish man's spouse.
