Brett Young Struggles With Lost Love in Emotional ‘Like I Loved You’ Video [Watch]
The melancholy song finds Young searching for answers from a lost love, exploring the age-old post breakup phrase, "We can still be friends." The video opens with the singer sitting alone in his room, surrounded by glass windows that showcase the overcast skies on a dreary day as he turns over a photograph of his ex. He eventually makes his way to a crowded bar to drink away the pain, watching while everyone around him is in high spirits, enjoying one other's company.
His remorse really escalates when he isolates himself at a table alone until his ex shows up and sits across from him as he emotionally pleads, "And you ain't the love song / I can't keep from singing / I gotta be honest / You really believe that's the truth / You never loved me like I loved you."
