Britney Spears – Out From Under lyrics

Breathe you out, breathe you in
You keep coming back to tell me
You're the one who could've been
In my eyes, see it oh so clear
It was long ago and far away but it never disappears

I try to put it in the past
Hold onto myself and don't look back

Chorus
I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under

So let me go
Just let me fly away
Let me feel the space between us growing deeper
And much darker everyday
Watch me now and I'll be someone new
My heart will be unbroken
It will open up for everyone but you

Even when I cross the line
It's like a lie I've told a thousand times

Chorus
I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under

Out from under
From under
From under
From under

Bridge
And part of me still believes when you say you're gonna stick around
And part of me still believes we can find a way to work it out
But I know that we tried everything we could try
So let's just say goodbye
Forever

Chorus
I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
And I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under

I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
And I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm Out From Under

From under, from under
From Under

    I think it's about a guy who keeps going back to his ex and trying to get her to go back with him because he thinks he is the one for her and treats her like she can't make her own choices because she chose not to be with him. He's some deluded dreamer and fantasist who thinks he's the best guy ever, and she still loves him but wants him to leave her alone because the relationship wasn't gonna be that good coz he ruined it by hurting her. She's telling him she doesn't want him and wishing he would leave her alone. She knows he's lying but she wants to believe his lies because deep down she also wants to live in a fantasy world and not face the truth, but she's gonna get through this and out from under this dream she's having and will love everyone but him coz he doesn't deserve it. She knows she needs to get proactive about telling him to eff off and is trying to convince herself to do that.

    Oh I love the Video on here with the mix of Britney and Johanna, I wish it was recorded like that, lil better put together in places, but I love its still. One of my favorite songs for sure.
    Its all about being with her man, wanting him to give her what she needs,(affection/love) but he wont even try, she has tried to leave before, but he would beg her to stay and convince her that he would be what she needed, but after she agrees to stay he falls back into his cold patterns, just being completely selfish not wanting to loose her but not wanting to make her happy and again constantly breaks her heart and so she finally is saying goodbye for the last time even though she feels so overwhelmed with the hurt and pain of being fooled, she knows that she will be ok when she is gone. I so relate to this song right now.
