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 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.

    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 that's when I fell apart. I don't 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. I'm waiting for the day that he falls, I was always there for him and when he crumbles I'm n0t g0ing t0 be there. Maybe then hes going to remember everything we had. && finally feel w0t I'm feeling right now. Hurt!

    Patrick, the love of my life I called him. We broke up over 2 years ago, but I never let him go & I never loss my love for him. I wrote him a 6 page letter expressing my still existing desire for him & he never responded but instead our friendship died too. Now I've lost him as a lover & a friend. It hurts more than the first time we broke up. Now since there's no more me & him, it's time I let him go so I can be free & live my life how it should be.

    My boyfriend and I broke up recently. He was my bestfriend for the past 6 years. I'm still in love with him, he says he loves me he just not inlove with me anymore and it hurts to even move. Half the time I feel like I can't breathe. I barely sleep, I can't stop thinking about him and I'm completely depressed. But, I can't let the depression consume who I am. I'm going to smile because I'm done crying. I'm going to be happy even when it hurts because I want to live not just exist. I'm going to be better because feeling like this the rest of my life is just not an option. And it Will get better in time.

    I see this song more as they were in a relationship that obviously meant a whole lot to both of them but she broke up with him (thinking that I deserve it) but she did what she had to. After the break up he didn't fight for her or show much care, which shows her that their relationship wasn't as strong as she thought. It still hurts but she realizes that she did what was best (I'm gonna smile cuz I deserve to)
    and from here it is just a game of waiting and patience for her heart to heal.
