  • Holla holla haaa
    Holla holla haaa

    Maybe it's me, maybe I bore you
    Oh no, it's my fault 'cause I can't afford you
    Maybe, baby
    Puffy, Jay-Z
    Would all be better for you
    'Cause all I could do was love you

    Baby when I used to love you (there's nothin' that I wouldn't do)
    I went through the fire for you (anything you asked me to)
    But I'm tired of living this lie
    It's getting harder to justify
    I realize that I just don't love you
    Not like I used to

    Holla holla holla haaa (yeaa)
    Holla holla holla haaa (yea, yea)

    Now maybe I should rob somebody
    So we could live like Whitney and Bobby
    It's probably my fault, my bad, my loss
    But you are the cause
    'Cause all I could do was love you

    Baby when I used to love you (there's nothin that I wouldn't do)
    I went through the fire for you (anything you asked me to)
    But I'm tired of living this lie
    It's getting harder to justify
    I realize that I just don't love you
    Not like I used to

    Holla holla holla haa (yeaa)
    Holla holla holla haa

    Do you remember (I used to) when I used (love you) to (used to) love you (love you)?
    Baby no, not anymore (I don't love you)
    (Used to love you) I love you
    And you're gonna miss me now

    Baby when I used to love you (there's nothin that I wouldn't do)
    I went through the fire for you (but I'm not gonna play the fool)
    And I can't live this lie
    I can't justify
    And I can't make you my wife, I don't love you
    Not like I used to

    Holla holla holla haa (not like I used to)
    Holla holla holla haa (not like I used to)

    Oh I used to love you (used to love you)
    Oh but I don't love you (I don't love you)

    I used to love you (used to love you)
    Oh but I don't love you (I bet you miss me 'cause I)

    I used to love you (you miss me 'cause I)
    I used to love you (I bet you're miss me now 'cause I, I don't love you) Writer/s: JOHN LEGEND, KANYE OMARI WEST, KANYE WEST

  • Nikki from Chicago, IlWhen he says "Baby, It's me... Maybe I bore you
    No, No it's my fault cause I can't afford you
    Maybe baby Puffy, Jay-Z
    Could all be better for you
    Cause all I could do was love you"

    He was referring to Diddy (Puff Daddy and Puffy were his names at the time) and rapper/mogul Jay-Z because they pretty much have Baller Status and are super rich; living the lifestyle that the girl he's singing to really wants.
  • Nikki from Chicago, IlWhen he says:"Maybe I should rob somebody, so we can live like Whitney and Bobby". He was referring to Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.
  • Cassandra Clark from Boston, Mai really love this song and i have the cd.... i think this song relates too alot of people not just me but others too......
  • Nikki from Chicago, IlThe music video for this song was located at a church and Kanye West played the pastor. John Legend's little sister, Phyliss played the role of a choir member and his brother, up and coming artist, Vaughn Anthony played a pew member seated behind John Legend's love interest in the video.
