Now that it's all said and done,
I can't believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down,
Like an old abandoned house.
What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath.
I fell too far, was in way too deep.
Guess I let you get the best of me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.
And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
Well I'm putting my heart back together,
'Cause I got over you.
Well I got over you.
I got over you.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

    I've been here, its so hard, you feel like you'll love them forever, and that one true love you missed out on. They say God can help you get through this, and I've always wondered how, and realized finally its not praying him to take away ur feelings but to replace them in the relationship you and God have which is a true need fulfilled. Once that is established, the dependance on another person you used to have is not so important anymore. I just wanted to share this with everyone as I've struggled with this.

    This song means alot to me because I never thot I would get over my ex and it turns out the worst day of my life was the day I did get over him. He was my 1st love. And I try to forget him. But trying to forget some one you love is like trying to remember some one you never met. Its hard. And it hurts. But its life what can you do other than try and move on?!
    I did it. And I'm extremly happy with the guy I'm talking to!

    This is a great song, kind of describes my current situation. Except that even though I got my heart broken, I still love her and wish her the best. I am not yet over her, but trying to move on. Mistakes were made on both our parts, but I know I tried my best to make things right. Now I just have to find the strength to walk away and say goodbye.

    - I lyke this 1. Whenver I hear this 1 it reminds me that what I feel for a certain thing is posible. Why? Because I'm a kind of person that easily to teach. Easily to talk with. "madaling kausap" sabi nga ng marami.
    - he is the 1 who teach me to be sum1 na madaling kausap. Nung nawala siya sa akin that's the time na naniwala ako na may mag bagay na talaga di para saken. I better off without you. Hahahha.
