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.

    Its true. . Sometimes is fatal attraction. . But is it for real, like forever? No way to really know. . Sometimes it takes a test of being apart to see if you can live without each other to find out? Real love will last. . I will always love him but is it "meant to be? " let it go and it will come back to you if its meant to be. . Sometimes true love means letting go. . Hard as it is. . Hang in there my love, mwah.

    Faith is not belief the god will do what we want. It is belief that god will do what is right. So instead of staying in the relationship she steps up and realizes they could both do better. But that doesn't mean she'll forget all the good times they had together. She just wants him to find slmeome else. Since all the mistakes can be overcomed by doing another mistakes.

    This song in appropriate from her to him or him to her. What it means to me is a beautiful statement from one person to another, when recognizing that a relationship cannot go the distance for whatever reason. I love you enough to let go, so that you can find someone who is able to give you what I cannot. It's wishing something special could go on forever but the reality has sunk in that it cannot with us. Meant with the best of intentions, one person is leaving to allow for both to gain closure and move towards the future, because there is not a future in the relationship.

    My meaning to this song. I've been married 31 years and am divorcing my husband. For lots of years, I loved him dearly but I can see that the love is not reciprocated so I am moving on. Its very sad ending a relationship of that length. But I realize that I am the trigger - the co dependent so it is time for me to walk away and hopefully the 2 of us will be happy again.
