I have poured out my heart, laid it right here for you
I've tried so hard, that's the best that I can do
Please understand I am not who I was

You used to be all that I had, Now your just not what I need
I've got to get over you and I know then I can get back to Me

Tears forget, that's more than I can do
Cause they don't wash away, all the things that we been through
I've put behind me my share of the shame, we could call villains but it's
All in vein

You used to be all that I had, Now your just not what I need
I've got to get over you and I know then I can get back to Me

All of my life I've waited, hoping wanting you to see me the way that I am
But now I know that I'm not alone...
Someone understands...

You used to be all that I had, Now your just not what I need
I've got to get over you and I know then I can get back to Me
You've got to know that...
You used to be all that I had, Now your just not what I need
I've got to get over you and I know then I can get back to Me

    To me this means he loves her and always will but he knows after all the years of trying to keep them together that the time seems to have finally come when he has to let her go and in doing this he hopes he can make everything right for everyone even himself by getting over her but in his heart he knows that wont ever happen...

Finally waiting all those years get a chance to be together, kids grown, both sides, you open your heart, you help them financially, open your family. And realize use to be all that i had... Etc etc now just not what i need... And you really do spend time trying to mend after all those years... Love this song... Very special for me... Get back to me...
