"I Used to Love Someone" as written by and Douglas Maynard/hamilton Coleman....
Oh, love, oh love, oh love
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 a 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, slipping the walls of my heart

Also I can remember the first day that you came in my life
(Came into my life)
It seemed then that you were a little more open with all of your thoughts
In them days you used to talk to me

But now I don't know who you really are
It seems that the look of your eyes is that you're driftin' off from afar
And you don't even seem the same
It's like you're playing a game with me

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

The love that I once knew still has a hold on me
I tried, oh I tried to love you

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

But now I'm on the run,
She had a hold on me (had a hold on me)
Slippin' my heart
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
Used to love.. and I still, I still can't get over you
She has a hold on me

It's not that I don't love you, I just can't get over her

    General CommentTo me this song is him breaking up with someone. He's like, "The love that I once knew still has a hold on me" Basically, he is telling her that he thought he could get over the other girl ( who was the love of his life), but now he has realized that he can't. And in some ways, it's not fair for the girl he's with now for him to be in this relationship that's not really working... especially when he is still in love with that other gurl. My fave line is the last one, because I feel the pain that is feeling! "It's not that I don't want to love you... I just can't get over her!" Sometimes, even when your head tells you to do the "right" thing or the smart thing- your heart tells you to do something else. In this case, he WANTS to love this one girl and focus his attentions on her, but he can't becuz he is still in love with the other one. LOVE IT!
