Bruce Cockburn – Someone I Used To Love lyrics

All the days we've been together
All the days we've been apart
Add up to a bunch of nothing
If I'm not still in your heart
I never want you to be
Just a page in my history
Someone I used to love
Your voice breathed in my ear
Or on the telephone
All the tender things we've whispered
To keep from feeling alone
May they never come to be
Just cold gems set in memory
Of someone I used to love
This current flows between us
That will not be denied
You draw me in towards you
Like the moon pulls at the tide
May no shadow ever fall
That will make me have to call
You someone I used to love

Someone I Used To Love meanings

  • m
    IMHO, a love that stopped and should not have stopped. Reaching back to the memories and knowing that the love has faded but the feelings of that love are strong enough to be felt after a long time apart. Leaves you wondering does she or he still think about that love you both had for each other.
