Here's the thing we started out friends
It was cool but it was all pretend
Yeah yeah
Since U Been Gone

You dedicated you took the time
Wasn't long till I called you mine
Yeah Yeah
Since U Been Gone

And all you'd ever hear me say
Is how I pictured me with you
That's all you'd ever hear me say

But Since U Been Gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get
What I want
Since U Been Gone

How can I put it? You put me on
I even fell for that stupid love song
Yeah, yeah
Since U Been Gone

How come I'd never hear you say
I just wanna be with you
I guess you never felt that way

But Since U Been Gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get (I get) what I want
Since U Been Gone

You had your chance you blew it
Out of sight, out of mind
Shut your mouth I just can't take it
Again and again and again and again

Since U Been Gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you (thanks to you)
Now I get, I get what I want
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you (thanks to you)
Now I get (I get)
You should know (you should know)
That I get, I get what I want
Since U Been Gone
Since U Been Gone
Since U Been Gone

    two ppl started off being friends (but it was all pretend) meaning they new it was to be more than friendship but they tried not to acknowledge it even tho they were both aware. one of the lovers became very attached (all u'd ever hear me say is how i pictured me and you) and there life was revolving around the other person but the dedication was not being returned truthfully, the lover did dedicate time and ebergy to the relationship but they didnt truely love them... it meant nothing and now the relationship has ended the truley in love one has been set free to find real love and is no longer letting there life revolve around someone who wasnt deserving of it

    I think the meaning to this song is: A relationship broke up so when the boy left, the girl is happy for once in her life because nobody is fighting her or yelling at her or bossing her around. She's free with herself alone and her family and children. I love Kelly! But this song mostly reminds me of my friend, he likes to boss me around and now that I've moved, he can't do that no longer and I can breathe for the first time, free! Love it...

    P.S.
    Also check out: Breakaway, You Thought Wrong, You Found Me, Addicted, Just Missed The Train and please request something! LOVE THIS SONG!!!

    Bye, everyone... !
