Anthony Hamilton – I Used To Love Someone lyrics

Ooh lord, ooooh lord
Oooh Lord, Oooooooh
Well, I remember when I used to love someone
That looked just like you
And also I can remember
The smell of her sweet perfume
She used to tell me things that I used to love
She had her way of getting the best of my heart
And also she had a way of
Keeping me smiling, but now she's gone

I used to love someone
But now I'm on the run
She had a hold on me
Stripping the walls of my heart

[Verse 2:]
Also I can remember the first day that you came in my life
It seemed then that you were a little more open
With all of your thoughts
And the days you used to talk to me
But now I don't know who you really are
It seems that the look of yours eyes
Is that your drifting off from afar
And you don't even seem the same
It's like your playing a game with me


The love I once knew (love that I once knew)
Still has a hold on me (hold on me)
I've tried, ooh I've tried
To love you


But now I'm on the run
She has a hold on me
Stripping my heart, oooh
And I don't know what made me do it
Something came along and blew it
I used to love someone
Now I'm on the run
From the love I once knew
Stripping the walls of my heart, used to love
She had a hold on me
Stripping, stripping my heart
