When I Loved You Like That Lyrics

by Jessica Simpson

You lit me up just like a match
Then you burned me out just as fast
You flew me high just like a kite
Up in the air, leaving me there alone in the sky

Why you gotta be so complicated?
Give me the world and then take it back
When I loved you
When I loved you like that

You put my love in a bottle in the ocean
Thinking you could control the time, yeah
Just so you could have the feeling
Of wanting me back one more time, yeah

I held you like the morning holds
The sun so carefully, I let you shine
So wild and free, so endlessly
I gave you every part of me

Why you gotta be so complicated?
Give me the world then take it back
When I loved you, yeah
When I loved you like that

Now you're walking in the city streets
And you're cold and you're all alone
The only thing keeping you company
Is the melody in your song, keep singing it

Hirsch scotch on the rocks
And drink your misery down
Go home and make love to her
And picture me, picture me, yeah, picture me

When I loved you like that
When I loved you like that
When I loved you like that
When I loved you like that, yeah

When I loved, when I loved
When I loved, when I loved
When I loved you like that
When I loved you like that
