Someone That I Used To Love

Album: Don't Look Back (1980)
Charted: 21
  • When I wake up each morning
    Trying to find myself
    And if I'm ever the least unsure
    I always remind myself
    Though you're someone in this world
    That I'll always choose to love
    From now on
    You're only someone that I used to love

    As for me it's getting down to the last unspoken part
    When you must begin to ease the pain of a broken heart
    Tell me why should I even care
    If I have to lose your love
    From now on
    You're only someone that I used to love

    Yet it wasn't enough for you
    All the love I had to give
    I did my best to keep you satisfied
    I guess you'll never know how much I tried
    I really tried

    And if ever our paths should cross again
    Well, You won't find me being the one
    Who gets lost
    Once I had so much to give
    But You just refused my love
    From now on
    You're only someone that I used to love

    I did my best to keep you satisfied
    I guess you'll never know how much I tried
    I really tried

    When I wake up each morning
    Trying to find myself
    And if I'm ever the least unsure
    I always remind myself
    Though you're someone in this world
    I'll always choose to love
    From now on
    You're only someone that I used to love

    Though you're someone in this world
    I'll always choose to love
    From now on
    You're only someone that I used to love

    From now on
    You're only someone that I used to love

    Natalie Cole, daughter of the late Nat 'King' Cole who charted five times in the top ten on her own, died in a Los Angeles hospital Thursday (December 31st, 2015) of congestive heart failure - a complication of hepatitis C and a previous kidney transplant due to drug use, she was 65...
    Born Stephanie Natalie Cole in Los Angeles in 1950, she was only 15 when her father died of lung cancer. Her mother had sung with Duke Ellington's orchestra. She started performing while still in college but struggled to get out from under her father's shadow. It was singer Chuck Jackson and producer Marvin Yancy (whom she later married) who saw her performing in Chicago in 1975 and recorded her first album, "Inseparable," with her, eventually getting her signed to Capitol Records - her father's old label. The result was "This Will Be," a #6 single that year. The next year she won Grammys for "Best New Artist" and "Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Female"- the first of nine she would eventually win...
    In 1977 she reached the top ten again with "I've Got Love On My Mind" (#5) and the following year with "Our Love" (#10). Other hits included "Pink Cadillac" (#5-1988) and "Miss You Like Crazy" (#7-1989). She is also remembered for "Unforgettable" #14)- a "duet" with her late father in 1991...
    Her autobiography, "Angel On My Shoulder" was published in 2000, detailing her recovery from addiction and was turned into a made-for TV movie. She has appeared several times on TV herself, notably in "Grey's Anatomy" and "Touched By An Angel". She was also married at times to Rufus drummer Andre Fischer and gospel singer Andrae Crouch. She is survived by a 38 year-old son...
    May she R.I.P.
