Gwen Stefani – Used To Love You lyrics

[Verse 1]
Never thought this would happen
Gotta let it sink in, you're gone
Don't know, know what I'm feeling
I must be dreaming, you're gone

[Pre-Chorus]
Suitcase, band-aids
Pulling back out the driveway
You go, I'll stay
You can keep all the memories
I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me the most

[Chorus]
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I used to love you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I used to love you

[Verse 2]
You thought there were no boundaries
But you just pushed me too far
I guess nobody taught you
Nobody taught you how to love

[Pre-Chorus]
Suitcase, band-aids
Pulling back out the driveway
You go, I'll stay
You can keep all the memories
I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me the most

[Chorus]
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I used to love you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I used to love you

[Bridge]
You know I was the best thing that ever happened to you
Oh, now look at what you lost
You know I was the best thing that ever happened to you
Now look at what you lost, oh

[Chorus]
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I used to love you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I used to love you

[Outro]
I don't know why I cry
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know why I used to love you
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know why I cry
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know why I used to love you
I don't, I don't, I don't

    My interpretation of this song is the mixed emotions and thoughts that go through someone's head after a break up. Or deeper than that, the recovery stages after heartbreak. This is a simple yet beautifully written song that show cases Gwen Stefani's genius and makes her more relatable to her audience as an artist. Her music video shows every emotion including madness for loving someone so undeserving she mouths the words "I used to love you."
