“Used To Love You” Lyrics (Official)

Never,
Thought this would happen
Gotta let it sink in,
You’re gone

Don’t know,
Know what I’m feeling
I must be dreaming,
You’re gone

Suitcase,
Bandaids,
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

Ooh
I don’t know why I cry,
But I think it’s cause I remember for the first time,
Since I hated you,
That I used to love you

Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I used to love you
Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I used to love you

You thought,
There were no boundaries
But you just pushed me,
Too far

I guess,
Nobody taught you,
Nobody taught you how to love

Suitcase,
Bandaids,
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

Ooh
I don’t know why I cry,
But I think it’s cause I remember for the first time,
Since I hated you,
That I used to love you

Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I used to love you
Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I used to love you

You know, I was the best thing that ever happened to you
Now look at what you’ve lost
You know, I was the best thing that ever happened to you
Now look at what you’ve lost

Ooh
I don’t know why I cry,
But I think it’s cause I remember for the first time,
Since I hated you,
That I used to love you

Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I used to love you
Oh, oh, oh, oh,
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

  1. Such stunning artwork! I’m so excited! “Used To Love You” has been so much more exciting than the releases of BDL and STF in my opinion.

  2. I think gwen looks amazing but I’m not a huge fan of the artwork. It looks like it was made up really quick but I love the song 🙂

  3. I love that the artwork says “GWEN STEFANI USED TO LOVE YOU”. So– the iTunes download will be available at what time today???

  4. This is the comeback I expected from her. I will erase BDL and STF from my memory, UTLY is the real deal. Some people are calling it her 3rd new single this era, but for me this is the new lead single even if those other singles will be on the album.

  5. I usually lurk on this site and don’t comment but I have to today. This song is amazing! I love it. I saw updates on Facebook that said she had written this song and performed it but I just listened to it for the first time and I have goosebumps. Can’t wait to download it.

  6. Song is so beautiful. See I love how beautiful the art work is, I would expect a bit more from the video than it just being a repeat of the backing video from the concert,,, even if it’s just that though, it’s incredibly beautiful! A lot of effort must’ve gone into the acting for that so maybe that is the official video…

  7. Digging the song for sure! Way better than BDL or STF. It seemed like she was just going through the motions on those songs and it was pretty much confirmed in her recent interviews. I think this song will do good, judging by the online response from fans and other sites.

    I think the cover art is OK, but it seems new for her so that’s cool.

  8. i hope that UTLY is the real come back of gwen stefani with emotionnal songs….and her own writing…

    even if “UTLY” sounds more “No Doubt”, than “Gwen stefani”…..
    IMO, it’s not a critical

  9. I like the cover. You can tell it’s all last minute, but I’m loving it. Sometimes super glossy can kill the connection. Tbh I’m just fine if the backdrop video ends up being the final official MV. If the song is connecting with people is all that matters. Leave the budget for a better video for the next single.

  10. Gwen got her groove back! Yes, this is the Gwen we all know and love. So happy and excited for the album!!! Glad all the other songs are going to be scraped because she didn’t feel they were authentic. Her heart is in this and it is amazing!!

  11. @Batcaver I hope not I hope she will take time and make something better. The video shown while she performs was pretty boring for an offical music video.

  12. I didn’t want to hear a live or YouTube version of the song and I missed the premieres of it here on the LA pop radio stations this morning… But I got a few calls today from people who did hear it and they raved about it, so I had anticipation for it. Given the mediocrity of BDL and the complete horror & bleeding ears from STF.. I really didn’t know what to expect.. I also don’t care for ballads or slower emotional songs from ‘solo Gwen’ but I have to say, THIS SONG IS FUCKING GREAT!!!!!!!!! Yes Gwen!!! Yes Gwen!!! I’d give it a solid 8 outta 10! A solid “A”! I hope this is a hit for our girl!!

  13. I’m so excited about this song, cant wait to see what else is on the album! It’s one of the most catchy choruses I’ve heard in a long time, and it finally sounds Gwen.

    Is it me, or is her expression on the cover shot very Grace Jones-y? I’m not a huge fan, I feel like there were a lot more interesting stills that could have been pulled. She looks…harsh or something? But prob just me

  14. I see the Grace Jones in the pic too lol! I really don’t care for the cover, she looks very unnatural… The lips look very Jenner-ish.. She also doesn’t look like Gwen the icon. I get she’s an artist and still evolving her sound/style… But every time she does debut a new kind of look there’s always something that ties it all together where u still see some of her iconic-ness… But I don’t see it in this pic or her looks lately… Still ALWAYS beautiful though, always

  15. I was so sad for Gwen and her family when the divorce was announced and didn’t think there would be music for a while, but right now I’m so happy and proud for her!!! I hope this is a hit for her, she has a light shining right now in the midst of heartbreak, everyone lets all support this!!!

  16. This song is totally a grower!!! Addicted 100%, there’s no space for another tune in my head right now.

    That’s the Gwen I love. If interscope stands for the song, it can be a hit…
    However, I do hope Gwen records a decent video for it. Please, Gwenny, do us that favor. Honor your videography with an epic cool-like video! Do not use the backdrop… let the backdrop be just an extra!

    PLEASE

  17. Not to rain on anybody’s parade but what about the Rossdale boys? It’s sad that their mom has a song out which puts their dad in such a negative light. I love that Gwen is writing from her heart again but I’m starting to feel this is really not the most dignified thing to do. At least the words to SAW weren’t so obvious and accusing. I also think that start a war has a much stronger melody. But I still support Gwen and I will buy the song anyway. Just my two cents .

  18. bought it after listened to the music video. from the production standpoint. i think that it’s kinda weird that they put a lot of effect and some autotune on Gwen voice, which making her sound less raw to me. but the mastering on the iTunes is a frickin lot better than streaming one and it’s also better than most of the mainstream song out there too. would give 7.5/10 (minus .5 for the over-saturated effect) to the production and mixing team.

    And from the song standpoint. i think it’s one of her best written song that Gwen have ever done and it’s very genuine. Also, the music video is really raw and it’s really upping the notch with the whole song too.

  19. #11 on iTunes…GO GWEN! 🙂

    I appreciate her efforts so much. To put the song out there, then the video and to finally be using social media to promote…it’s awesome. It seems her team is finally on the ball!

  20. It has reached the Baby Don’t Lie peak of #6 on iTunes! It’s about to crack the top 5! Everyone should gift it to their friends

  21. Hello guys! I just wanna say I’m so proud of Gwen,
    I made my first iTunes purchase ever with Used To Love You.
    Go figure, the first album I ever bought was L.A.M.B. 🙂

  22. I’m not used to post but I need to share my enthusiasm ! No 4 ! That is so great ! I’m so happy and proud for Gwen. She so deserves this

  23. Wowwww!!! #4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m sure this feels absolutely amazing for Gwen!! I hope it stays in the top 10 for a while!! It would really be amazing if she beat Taylor Swift and one direction!! That drake song is on fire right now so idk about that one but let’s see!!

  24. #3!! 😮 😮 😮

    Amazing! its really the strength of the song that’s kept it inching up instead of dropping off I think, plus heard it on the radio today (the one time I turned on the radio just to check, it was playing 🙂

    So excited about this song and what’s to come!!

  25. So awesome hope it won’t fall dramatically since it hasn’t received any promo. I was thinking it would be smart if gwen performed it the first results of the voice and also started preorder for her new album and announce the title!

  26. Ahhh goddamn Drake!!! That song is so big right now and he’s getting so much promo/press because of his dorky moves in the video. I bought it before we even knew about a Gwen song… Damn it

  27. Damn, there’s a guy I never heard about with a song called “Used To Love You Sober”, he actually passed Gwen on iTunes, and he’s #2 and she’s #3. The fun fact is that the titles are almost the same.

  28. I also didn’t expect it to get to #2!!! Secretly in my heard I thought ‘there’s noooo way she’ll pass Taylor Swift and One Direction!!’ I mean they’re some of the biggest acts on the planet!!! GO GWEN!!! FUCK YEA

  29. Also it’s really early in the campaign, so the response has been amazing considering that. From what I’ve read, it hasn’t even been officially serviced to radio yet, I think I read the 27th? But kiss in la is already playing it a lot. Actually both times I turned on kiss to check, it was playing believe it or not, which is amazing!!

    I’m hoping Interscope sees the response and really puts a big push behind the single

  30. Yeah I hope it’s featured on itunes banners and YouTube. And that she will perform it a few times on TV shows within the next few weeks

  31. I wonder if she will perform. That would be awesome! She hasn’t performed there since Looking Hot, I think. It would give the song a boost.

  32. I haven’t heard it on the radio yet where I am. It’ll continue to fall on iTunes, but if she starts performing it and doing promo then hopefully it’ll rebound!

    Off topic, but has there been any progress to adding back the number of comments in each post on the main page Jenny?

    1. Yeah that would be cool, cause I still get a bit lost. At least by seeing the number of comments we can keep track without having to click the topic.

    2. I’ve looked into different ways, but the theme that we created doesn’t allow it. It’s a bummer… but I’m still looking around for another way to maybe incorporate them somewhere. 🙁

  33. Adele done come in and snatched Gwen’s weave right off to be very honest. Her latest single is a far superior mid tempo pop ballad, that is in direct competition with Gwen’s on Billboard Hot 100. Vocals are irrelevant, from a production standpoint there’s an obvious gap in overal quality. Where as Gwen’s voice is auto tuned to sound like a 21 year old Disney star, Adele’s single offers stripped vocals and a heartbreaking orchestral arrangement.

    I understand they play different styles of pop music. They are different artists – but they are in the same world. They are on the same charts, nominated in the same categories, and are on the same radio stations. if Gwen wants a relevant career in pop music, her team has to step it up. It’s rumored Beyoncé and Rih will also drop new albums by the end of the year, and Bieber is making a huge comeback (unfortunatley), so it’s likely Gwen will be lost in the crowd. I also understand good music can still be good without chart success, but Gwen clearly cares about commercial success, as she tweets her chartting and radio plays frequently and has literally written songs about wanting new fans and people to look at her lol.

    It’s ok to disagree with me but let’s be cool about our difference of opinions, ok? Sharing my two cents 🙂

  34. No. why are you even trying to compare Adele to Gwen Stefani? Are you kidding me? I quit reading what you wrote after the 1st paragraph. You like Adele’s song. Great. Buy it and enjoy it. This is not a competition, dude. Plus Adele is so hot right now. Anyway Gwen’s new single is being well received. It even reached #1 on the Pop chart. Instead of trying to drag Gwen down, just embrace both singers for being different.

  35. I don’t think it’s fair to compare them. Adele is coming back from an insanely successful album – of course she’s going to be number one! They may be in the same “pop” genre, but they have completely different styles and careers. There is room for all those ladies on the charts.

  36. You guys are missing the point lol. I’m speaking in terms of the charts, where Gwen desires success and has failed. She has DECADES of industry experience on newer artists, so theres really no excuse why she’s making mediocre music. P&S was abandoned due to poor sales. BDL and STF were abanonded due to poor sales. UTLY has ALREADY fallen to #19 on iTunes, you can say an ellen performance will help, but idk, maybe creating a GOOD SONG would help too??? Gwen is CLEARLY motivated by chart positions and commercial success, so if you want to see this new single or project go ANYWHERE you better hope it impacts pop music the way her competition is – yes its competition, yes its a business, thats the industry. You really think she’s going to tour an album that doesn’t sell? How was that Push and Shove tour lol. We care about quality of music, but her label cares about $, and like it or not they go hand in hand. What I’m saying is she needs to learn how to play the game otherwise her singles will go no where just like STF and BDL.

  37. I think your expectations are a little high if you think Gwen’s “comeback” was as anticipated as Adele’s. Adele is on a whole other stratosphere of popularity right now. I didn’t expect Gwen to go #1 or break Vevo records, but I really love her song and I’m so happy the reception to her new single was generally positive and she exceeded expectations on the charts. It seems like you’re deeming it a failure and it’s not even a week old? I guess you feel it’s a “mediocre” song and that’s fine, but I think you just need to give her a chance. She’s inspired, she’s happy to be writing songs again, she’s all over instagram with studio pics…I think these are all positive signs. I also think she’s doing this for HER this time around and not only for success.

  38. Adele could’ve recorded herself while eating a cheeseburger and that recording would still be #1 in 100 countries right now. She’s Adele. Like others have already said, it is unfair to compare Adele’s and Gwen’s chart performance. Gwen is doing fine and she is inspired and happy. That’s all that counts at this point in her career tbh. We’ll see where Adele will be in 20+ years.

  39. I swear, you people are never satisfied. Or it’s because BDL was generic or STF was trash and now UTLY is mediocre? lol Bye, No.

    Anyway at this stage of her career Gwen has nothing left to prove. I think no one expected the song to do so well on the charts. UTLY is becoming a solid hit for Gwen, liking it or not. Of course the song has dropped on iTunes but that’s normal. At least she’s still in the top 20. That’s huge for Gwen, especially for being a 46-year old female artist. You don’t see that much. If the song charts within the top 30 of the Billboard Hot 100 it will be a great accomplishment for her.

  40. Hotline Bling, Exes and Ohs, and The Hills were not overnight successes. It took time for them to grow into U.S. hits. UTLY is dropping on iTunes now (as expected!), but it could rebound in another month or two. Gwen doesn’t have the luxury of singles being an instant success like Swift and Adele have. Hopefully she will do some live performances at The Voice and AMAs, etc and give it a boast.

    1. And honestly, even if it ends up being a big fat failure, I don’t care. I love the song and I’m glad she released it!

  41. Also, a few suggestions:
    – Encourage fans to hear the song on streaming services, like Spotify, even though they bought the song;
    – Youtube only counts one hit from 6 to 8 hours, when played several times;
    – The best days to do a collective #buyUTLYonitunes are the days Gwen performs the song.

    Just a few tips from a fan. 😉

    1. Great ideas! We’re already planning on putting something together this week to encourage fans to request “UTLY” on the radio since it’s making it’s “official” debut this week but I’ll make sure to put in your suggestions, too. 😀

  42. I also don’t think it’s fair to compare Adele & Gwen. Yes Gwen has been in the business for decades but Adeles career (musically) has already exceeded Gwens, and in such a short time. When you have that kind of massive global success like Adele you’re in a whole other stratosphere and playing field. Like someone else commented Adele could record her self eating a cheeseburger and itd be a hit. Adele can dust any artist right now, & I think she’ll always be able to. But can she branch out and be successful in other fields like Gwen has? Maybe, maybe not. 2 different type of careers

  43. Currently #17 on iTunes US. YESSS!!!
    And the video is #43 on iTunes too.

    Btw how do we even request a fan demanded version? I know Hillary Duff fans got it for her Sparks video. I wish they invested on a new video. I feel that not many people are streaming on youtube cause it’s not a video you want to watch so many times. There are parts that I feel that are so intimate.

  44. Where hell do you people get your information from? Adele is extremely popular but she has not exceed Gwen sorry not even close ADELE is not a house hold name like GWEN STEFANI

  45. Electronica, she already is, at least for this generation. At least Adele’s got a great voice and is talented, unlike so many other artists in the top these days.

  46. Gwen needs to make a new video for UTLY to promote the song! Something amazing like “Cool”.

    She could say the “let’s make some creepy faces” video wasn’t the official video… and it was like a “buzz” video or whatever.

  47. So I don’t think there will another video. She seems to love it. And probably she doesn’t need another one. Hopefully the video for the 2nd single will have a storyline and a more elaborated concept.

  48. This video is amazing on its own, NDLOVER! We’ll get the storyline videos later 😉

    Meanwhile, let’s watch the video on youtube and stream on spotify everyday. Let’s do this!!!

  49. I’ve been a devoted supporter of Gwen & the boys for years upon years & even I’ve only seen the video one time. That video was an extra case of nails nailed to a coffin that is Sophie Miller directed videos. That along with those worn out black dyed tips of hers.

  50. I like the video and I’m glad she released it. The unfortunate part is it’s a “one and done” kind of video. There’s no need for most to watch it more than once. In the end, promo is what will help the song…and the juicy gossip she dished to Ryan didn’t hurt either LOL She knows the game. If she lands performances at the AMAs, SNL, The Voice, etc then it might have a chance!

  51. I don’t really think she knows the game that well… Especially for a pop star in 2015 you know? But anyway on tmz today they were making this Gwen-Blake business out to be more of a Kardahsian thing than an actual real thing and tmz isn’t like other media outlets… They usually have it right… And in her career spanning over 2 decades she’s never resorted the exploitation or anything else but her art… And I thought to myself well why would she start with all that now? She’s 46 with two failed singles behind her and an itch for success… Idk it’s all bittersweet kinda.. Do we know if she walked the carpet with Blake? Maybe she’s learning the game now AmandaG… The 2015 version?

  52. I think she knows the game, it’s just a question of if she wants to play it. She has upped her social media presence and she released UTLY before it leaked and she’s doing some promo, so I think things are heading in the right direction. Certainly WAY better than last year and PAS. I only hope the Blake thing won’t sidetrack her or take attention away from the music. Have fun, but stay focused Gwen.
