There is no pain quite like that of a broken heart.

There are many songs that try to capture and convey how deep and poignant this particular kind of pain is.  We present the lyrics to one such song in this post.

Here are the words to the song:  Someone That I Used to Love.

 

 

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

I wish it was enough for you, all the love I had to give
And 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 wont find me being the one to get lost again
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

And 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 that 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

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
From now on you’re only someone that I used to love

This very moving song has been performed well by both Natalie Cole and Barbra Streisand.  If you are interested, you can search for a version of the song on YouTube.
