Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even without fists held high, yeah
Never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die

I didn't want us to burn out
I didn't come here to hurt you now
I can't stop

I want you to know
That it doesn't matter
Where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone!

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you'll find another
That doesn't always make you wanna cry
Started with a perfect kiss
Then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn't keep this love alive

You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go

I want you to know
That it doesn't matter
Where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

I'm already gone
I'm already gone
You can't make it feel right
When you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone
Already gone
There's no moving on
So I'm already gone

Already gone, already gone, already gone, Oooo, oh
Already gone, already gone, already gone, yeah

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

I want you to know
That it doesn't matter
Where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

I'm already gone
I'm already gone
You can't make it feel right
When you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone
Already gone
There's no moving on
So I'm already gone...

    If you love something, you let it go. If it comes back to you, then it's yours. If it doesn't, then it wasn't meant to be.

    I get that. But I also believe that true love is worth fighting for and working through the hard times. I believe that if a person can't tolerate you or the valleys in a relationship, then they certainly don't deserve you at your best, (or the peaks). If True Unconditional Love is felt by both parties in the relationship, then it would be powerful enough to conquer and sustain through any challenge or rough patch. You couldn't have really genuinely loved that person if you couldn't stand by their side and remain loyal.

    The song Already Gone by Kelly clarkson is beautiful. Perfect for a beautiful voice like hers. No one could sing that song better than her. I want the Cd. She has realness, a kid at heart, rock on innonence about her. And you can feel what she has been through in her music. Its soulful.

    This song just brought me right back to my divorce which nearly killed me. And now it seems to even represent the eventual destruction of my current relationship with my best, longest friend that i've had. This song just hits me like a sledgehammer. " someone's gotta go" it seems theyve always gotta go away from me.

    Btw at fourth one down: [unregistered may 31st @ 9:34 a. M. ]
    It is not about her not wanting to put up with him anymore.
    She clearly loves him but they obviously know that it will never work-
    Whether they argue all the time or whatever. She says: "i love you enough to let you go. " and "one that doesn't always make you cry. "
    They were never meant to be- and even though they love each other she's saying they could never surivive together. They were never meant for it.
