Gwen Stefani - Used To Love



by John Klein

The Experience:  One of the hardest experiences in life is to share the deepest part of yourself with another and then be rejected by them.  We were not meant to be rejected but to be loved.  The experience of this song is the bitter experience of a love had and then a love lost.


Music video: In this very simple video we just see shots of Gwen's face.  Love is very personal.  Every lover has a face, a name, a history.  To be rejected in your love hurts.  It hurts a life, it hurts a person.  No one wants to be rejected, no one likes break ups.  Deep inside as persons we long to be embraced, loved, cherished in a love that never ends in rejection!


The Meaning: "I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you, I thought you loved me the most"  We have probably all experienced the feeling of being on top of the world when we are in love.  Nothing in these moments gets us down.  However, feelings change, hearts drift and many times break ups happen.  We were not meant to have our hearts broken and thats why it hurts so much when it happens.  Thats why we want to forget all the memories after a breakup.  

Ask yourself: Does a love that never disappoints really exist? If so, where can I find it?     



LYRICS:

"Used To Love You"

Yeah, boy
Never thought this would happen
I let it sink in, you're gone
I don't know, know what I'm feeling
I must be dreaming, you're gone

Suitcase, band-aids
Pulling back out the driveway
You go, I'll stay
You can keep all the memories
I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me the most

I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you

I used to love you
I used to love you

Are you gone?
There were no boundaries
What, you just pushed me too far
I guess nobody taught you
Nobody taught you how to love

Suitcase, band-aids
Pulling back out the driveway
You go, I'll stay
You can keep all the memories
I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me the most

I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you

I used to love you
I used to love you

You know I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me more, oh
You know I was the best thing that ever happened to you
Now look at what you lost, oh

I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you
I don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you
That I used to love you

I used to love you
I used to love you

I don't know why I cry
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know why I used to love you
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know why I cry
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know why I used to love you
I don't, I don't, I don't
