"When She Loved Me" is a song from Toy Story 2 written by Randy Newman and sung by Sarah McLachlan from the perspective of Jessie about how she was once loved by a young girl named Emily, but eventually forgotten as she grew older. Woody is moved by the story as Jessie ends it with, "You never forget kids like Emily or Andy...but they forget you."

This song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song in 2000, where McLachlan performed it at the awards ceremony, but the award went to Phil Collins for another Disney song "You'll Be in My Heart" from Tarzan, which was released on the same year as Toy Story 2. It did, however, received the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 43rd Grammy Awards. It is listed as Track 2 on the Toy Story 2 Soundtrack.

Lyrics Edit

When somebody loved me

Everything was beautiful

Every hour we spent together

Lives within my heart

And when she was sad

I was there to dry her tears

And when she was happy, so was I

When she loved me


Through the summer and the fall

We had each other, that was all

Just she and I together

Like it was meant to be

And when she was lonely

I was there to comfort her

And I knew that she loved me


So the years went by

I stayed the same

But she began to drift away

I was left alone

Still I waited for the day

When she'd say I will always love you


Lonely and forgotten

I'd never thought she'd look my way

And she smiled at me and held me

Just like she used to do

Like she loved me

When she loved me


When somebody loved me

Everything was beautiful

Every hour we spent together

Lives within my heart

When she loved me
