Kelly Clarkson – Already Gone lyrics
Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even without fists held high, yeah
Never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die

I didn't want us to burn out
I didn't come here to hurt you now
I can't stop

I want you to know
That it doesn't matter
Where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone!

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you'll find another
That doesn't always make you wanna cry
Started with a perfect kiss
Then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn't keep this love alive

You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go

I want you to know
That it doesn't matter
Where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

I'm already gone
I'm already gone
You can't make it feel right
When you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone
Already gone
There's no moving on
So I'm already gone

Already gone, already gone, already gone, Oooo, oh
Already gone, already gone, already gone, yeah

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

I want you to know
That it doesn't matter
Where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

I'm already gone
I'm already gone
You can't make it feel right
When you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone
Already gone
There's no moving on
So I'm already gone...

    Faith is not belief the god will do what we want. It is belief that god will do what is right. So instead of staying in the relationship she steps up and realizes they could both do better. But that doesn't mean she'll forget all the good times they had together. She just wants him to find slmeome else. Since all the mistakes can be overcomed by doing another mistakes.

    If you love something, you let it go. If it comes back to you, then it's yours. If it doesn't, then it wasn't meant to be.
    I get that. But I also believe that true love is worth fighting for and working through the hard times. I believe that if a person can't tolerate you or the valleys in a relationship, then they certainly don't deserve you at your best, (or the peaks). If True Unconditional Love is felt by both parties in the relationship, then it would be powerful enough to conquer and sustain through any challenge or rough patch. You couldn't have really genuinely loved that person if you couldn't stand by their side and remain loyal.

    Its about those relationships where even if we try to make it work. Make compromises and do everything but still something happens and it doesn't mean that they don't love each other. I think they are still in love but its only making their life harder. So one of them has to leave the relationship. The one leaving knows that its over because something has happened or something has been done by the other person and that is something which is unacceptable. And even though it hurts the one leaving still they leave thinking its the best for the other person whom they love.

    This song hit me right to the core. My hart was broken when my wife left me and this song had a lot of meaning to me. My story is a very sad one.
    This song makes me cry any place that I hear it because it brings back the painful memories. Helps me to heal and let go of my wife who ran from my love. My prayers go to those who know my pain and who feel the same.

    One of my favorite song ever! This song reminds me of the memories that I had before with someone I have loved so much. It reminds me of the things the we've planned, places we want to go and occasions that we will celebrate. It reminds me of the things that we have done together and the struggles we have been through. When I listen to this song, I remember how we talk and we laugh. It reminds me of the times that we traveled and had a tattoo together. But after how many months, I just have to let go. It feels like he's not for me. As time goes by, I feel like he's no longer in need of me specially when he found a job. He stopped communicating to me until the time came that I have to let him go. We broke up but we never had a chance to talk about it personally. It was just so sad that all that we've planned just disappeared. So I'm already gone.

    I love this song, and thanks to this I got stronger to let him go and I'm right now just trying to move on. She speak to me thru this song. I know that it was the bet decision I could have ever taken in my life, it was the right thing to do and hes gonna move on with the time. It hurts, but with the time it will hill. I will always love him and he will always be someone very special in my life, but is already time to say goodbye.

    This song does not resemble beyonce's halo. No way no how. People just love to compare. They are both equally good songs. Already gone is about a women giving up on the person she loves. Halo is about a women ready to give love a try so how the heck are these two songs the same? Nor the music or the lyrics are the same. The only similarities in the song is that they are sung by two fantastic artists, and its a ballad. That's it!

    My beloved pet just passed at the age of 21 years old. He was my soulmate. I had to make the very difficult decision to euthanize him to spare him from suffering. I have been devastated since his passing. I asked my angel up waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge to send me a sign, and this song came on the radio!

    Btw at fourth one down: [unregistered may 31st @ 9: 34 A. M. ]
    It is not about her not wanting to put up with him anymore.
    She clearly loves him but they obviously know that it will never work-.
    Whether they argue all the time or whatever. She says: "i love you enough to let you go. " and "one that doesn't always make you cry. "
    They were never meant to be- and even though they love each other she's saying they could never surivive together. They were never meant for it.

    This song in appropriate from her to him or him to her. What it means to me is a beautiful statement from one person to another, when recognizing that a relationship cannot go the distance for whatever reason. I love you enough to let go, so that you can find someone who is able to give you what I cannot. It's wishing something special could go on forever but the reality has sunk in that it cannot with us. Meant with the best of intentions, one person is leaving to allow for both to gain closure and move towards the future, because there is not a future in the relationship.

    My meaning to this song, it didn't take me very long to figure it out. When I first went into high school, a grade 9 boy asked me out and we were going out for a few weeks but by no means to me did it feel right, when we broke up he said the most hurtful thing anybody has ever said to me, I found this song on my ipod and had to look it up on google, the lyrics go straight to my heart. Unforgetable.

    This song is sooo amazing. A lot of people complain about how it's has the same music and sounds like the exact same song Halo by Beyonce but guess what. Who cares!?!?! This song is more meaningful and is sooo much better. And for the people complaining, like you can do any better. Her voice is the best. I am so glad she won american idol
    Kelly Clarkson, you rock!

    Its true. . Sometimes is fatal attraction. . But is it for real, like forever? No way to really know. . Sometimes it takes a test of being apart to see if you can live without each other to find out? Real love will last. . I will always love him but is it "meant to be? " let it go and it will come back to you if its meant to be. . Sometimes true love means letting go. . Hard as it is. . Hang in there my love, mwah.

    My meaning to this song. I've been married 31 years and am divorcing my husband. For lots of years, I loved him dearly but I can see that the love is not reciprocated so I am moving on. Its very sad ending a relationship of that length. But I realize that I am the trigger - the co dependent so it is time for me to walk away and hopefully the 2 of us will be happy again.

    This song has such a strong meaning! Even though you love someone, and you want to stay with them its not always the right choice to stay, as staying will cause them more pain then you leaving. So if you loved them enough than you would let them go, let them find someone else, because when you know that the relationship can't last let them go. If you love them than you'll let them go.

    Powerful song! I have recently re-connected with the first girl I ever loved, over 20 years ago. We never really got to end things back then, and we started over again recently. But, as much as she means to me, I can see that we're not going to last. It is hard to look your soul-mate in the eye, and know that you have to leave. Being apart from her is killing me, and as much as I don't want to let go, I know I'm going to have to. I've never gotten over her, but I've moved on while we were apart, and I know that I can't go back to where we were. It's tearing my heart out, but it's probably time to face the fact that I am already gone.

    Bkt ga nmn gai'on.? Ang pag'sa-hirap namang magmahal eh. Ung mahal mo ayaw sa'yo. Yung mahal na mahal ka naman. Di mo matutunang mahalin.
    'wid regard to this song,. Maganda sya. It made me realized na may magic pala talaga ang love no.! Handa kang magparaya para lang sa love. How eternal.
    'how I wished that someday. Love will find a way for us to be together.
    S*t. 5 years q ng mnmhl unf 1st love ko. Pncnin mo nmn ako alexes ariola.!
