Here's the thing we started off friends
It was cool but it was all pretend
Yeah yeah since you've been gone
You're dedicated you took the time
It wasn't long till I called u mine
Yeah yeah since you've 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 you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so movin' on
Yeah yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get
I get what I want
Since you've been gone

How can I put it you put me on
I even fell for that stupid love song
Yeah yeah since you've been gone

How come I never hear you say
I just want to be with you.
Guess you never felt that way

But since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so movin on yeah yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get
I get what I want
Since you've 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 you've been gone
Since you've been gone

I can breathe for the first time
I'm so movin' 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 movin' on yeah yeah
Thanks to you
Thanks to you
Now I get
I get
You should know
You should know
Got to get
I get what I want

Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

    This song reminds me of my ex bf that hurt me so much and i felt like i now he is gone i feel like myself again. and where it says" shut your mouth i just cant take it, again and again and again" it reminds me of all the times he got me to believe his lies and all the promises he made me and never kept. and where it says" i can breathe for the first time" it reminds me of all the times he wouldn't like it when i hanged out with my friends he just wanted to take up all my time it it felt he was suffocating me. but never the less i love this song. it means that this girl was hurt by a guy she loved and he in a way betrayed her annd treated her badly.

    This is about a girl who loved a guy with all of her heart, but he mistreated her and ended up losing her,to her benefit. Now hes trying to apologize when she sings 'shut your mouth i just cant take it'. She doesnt care about what he has to say anymore. Now she can live free and be happy without him.
