When You Love Someone Lyrics

by Anita Baker

Were we ever?, did we use it up too fast?
Are great moments never meant to last?
And the last thing that I want
Is to ever make your smile go away

Keep the momeries take the best of what we had
I can't stand to watch what once was great go bad
And if i can't be with you
Then I'd rather just remember what we knew

Chorus
When you love someone
And you love them with your heart
And it does't disappear if you're apart

When you love someone
And you've done all you can do - you've done all you can
When you set them free
And if that love is true
When you love someone
It will all come back to you

Nights i wondered, was i too much that we gave?
If we'd given more could we have both been saved?

And i guess we have crossed the line
Never knowing what was yours
And what was mine

Chorus

And through it all, i still have no regrets
Just promise me - promise me
You never will forget - you never will forget

When you love someone
And you have done all you can do
And you set them free and if that love is true
If you love someone, it will all come back to you
