I Used To Love Him - Mary J. Blige

Now I don't
I used to love him
Now I don't
Now I don't

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


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


Father you saved me and you 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 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)
