It's been the longest winter without you
I didn't know where to turn to
See somehow I can't forget you
After all that we've been through

Going coming
Thought I heard a knock
Who's there no one
Thinking that I deserve it
Now I realize that I really didn't know
If you didn't notice you mean everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All that I know is I'mma be ok

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
Even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

I couldn't turn on the TV
Without something there to remind me
Was it all that easy
To just put aside your feelings

If I'm dreaming don't wanna laugh
Hurt my feelings but that's the path
I'll believe in
And I know time will heal it
If you didn't notice boy you mean everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All I know is I'mma be ok

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
Even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

Since there's no more you and me
It's time I let you go
So I can be free
And live my life how it should be
No matter how hard it is I'll be fine without you
Yes I will

[Chorus: x2]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
Even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to (yes I do)
It'll all get better in time

    This song could help someone get over a loved one's death. Even though, it's hard to acept that they're gone, you have to simle to keep them alive.

    This reminds me of when I broke up with my boyfriend.We just had nothing in common.It was kind of like a smart girl and a athletic guy.I was honestly embaressed to hang out with him too.He hasn't had a gf since so I'm not really worried about it.I've moved on & I am crushing on someone else.The only problem is one of my besties is too.Its great that we don't fight over him though.

    better in time is such a nice song...
    i was really touched reading those meanings that other
    avid people of lyricsmode.com
    In my part nman,i think the title of the song speaks the true meaning of this song.. i know it really hurts to broke up with sum1 you really love most of your life..but then again if u really try to accept the fact that it is over or move'on..u wil see that it is really not the end of life..

    i hope this song is true, because i have something to look forward too. i want t0o be better. My boyfriend and i broke up after 2 years, we werent just boyfriend and girlfriend we were bestfriends and then suddenly he gave up on us and thats when i fell apart. I dont get how it ended so quick;y and how he is so fine about it. He now acts like a different person and i know him and its hurting me seeing him act like this. Im waiting for the day that he falls, i was always there for him and when he crumbles im n0t g0ing t0 be there... Maybe then hes going to remember everything we had. && finally feel w0t im feeling right now... hurt!
