When's the day you start again
And when the hell does you'll get over it begin
I'm looking hard in the mirror
But I don't fit my skin
It's too much to take
It's too hard to break me
From the cell I'm in

Oh from this moment on
I'm changing the way I feel yeah
From this moment on
It's time to get a real

Cause I still don't know how to act
Don't know what to say
Still wear the scars like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
Cause you're long gone
But I still don't know where to start, still finding my way
Still talk about you like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
But you're long gone, you moved on

So how'd you pick the pieces up yeah
I'm barely used to saying me instead of us
The elephant in the room keeps scaring off the guests
It gets under my skin to see you with him
And it's not me that you're with

Oh from this moment on
I'm changing the way I feel yeah
From this moment on
It's time to get a real

Cause I still don't know how to act
Don't know what to say
Still wear the scars like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
Cause you're long gone
But I still don't know where to start, still finding my way
Still talk about you like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
But you're long gone, you moved on

No I can't keep thinking that you're coming back
No
Cause I got no business knowing where you're at
No
And it's gonna be hard yeah
Cause I have to wanna heal yeah
And it's gonna be hard yeah
The way I feel that I have to get real

I still don't know how to act
Don't know what to say
Still wear the scars like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
But you're long gone
But I still don't know where to start, still finding my way
Still talk about you like it was yesterday
But you're long gone and moved on
But you're long gone, you moved on

But you're long gone, you moved on
Eh eh, oh oh
Eh eh, oh oh
But you're long gone, you moved on

    The loved on in this scenario well I say loved but ex love has moved and the he's left trying to pick up back the pieces of his life now cos he hasn't moved on yet. Trying to convince himself that he s over her and he needs to move on but is finding it hard. :]

    For me this song, relates more to the boys. The girl was already uptight and already moved on as time passed by, but the boy still has thoughts that the girl would comeback to his arms again knowing that time had healed the girl already, the boy foolishly still waited for the time, and at the same time, trying to accept the fact that she's long gone and moved on. :p

    It feels like, you still do not want to lose that special someone. I want the fantasy to last even if it means fooling myself rather than to face reality just to realize that you're not really there, its a thousand times painful.
