I Used To Love Him - Mary J. Blige

(Chorus)
Now I don't
I used to love him
Now I don't
Now I don't

Lauryn:
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 and blurred my sight
And I used to love him

(Chorus)

Mary:
I chose the 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, drug of a fiend

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

(Chorus)

Lauryn:
Father you saved me and you showed me that life
Was much more than being some foolish man's wife

Mary:
Showed me that love was respect and devotion
Greater than planets and deeper than any ocean

Lauryn: See my soul was weary but now it's replenished

Mary: Content because that part of my life is finished

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

(Chorus and adlibs until fade)
