Leona Lewis – Better In Time lyrics
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

    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.

    This song really helped me. I dunno, everytime I hear this song, I just have a happy feeling. I just had a break-up with my long term bf. For me, it was a very traumatic experience. This song, contributed a lot for myself to pursue life in a positive way. This song has the most number of play count on my ipod. Great lyrics, especially for the people who's still in the process of healing and moving on.

    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.

    First time I heard this song. It made me realized about my recent long distance relationship. We've been together for 3yrs and 7mos and now breaking up. Somehow I don't understand him. How it really feels to be in loved. It takes constant communication but it came up to a point that he irritated me for being like that. I really don't know. And so he asked space. It really hurts. Maybe he don't love me that much. Need to set him free but its hard. Both of us have already plans for our future. Sad to say his love fades. I will move on. Need to be strong it'll gets better in time.

    I cried and cried a lot. Maybe you're all right. Everything's gonna be better in time. It takes time. I had a 5year realtionship wth him. We broke up recently, I know I have faults but sumhow he has his faults too. It doesn't matter who's to blame I just wanted to fix everything but I don't think he'll gave me the chance to start all over again because I made I mistake that he can no longer forgives - it's when I didn't trusted him. I'm still inlove with him and I can't imagine my life without seeing him anymore. =( - are. A. E Sweet_anne01.

    This reminds me of my ex that broke up with me recently. I love this song but it reminds me of her and make me cry. I'm try my hardest to get back with her. I know she loves me too, we tell eachother all the time but she says she doesn't want a bf right now :(.
    I would do anything to get back with her. I love you Gina, always.

    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.

    Hearing this song is the most wonderful spare time I ever made. I broke up with my boyfriend 5 days ago. Its freakin me when I remember those memries we had. I love him so much more than everything else here on earth. I don't know what to do next. I really don't know. I just can't imagine his not mine anymore now. Anyway. I just hope he noticed everything I made while where together. I love him so much. I love him. But I need to do what is right for both of us. I don't want to be a dsturbance for him. My heart is a mess now. Frankly I love him so much. I'm sorry this is the only way I can express my heartaches.

    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!

    I can sympathize with you all as I understand what you're going through. When you've had a 9+ year realtionship with someone it's more than being married. And though we never did, I felt like going through a divorce when he said that was the end of our road. It's been two years and to this day it hurts and I'm crying. He's getting married pretty soon and he's very happy. But though you and I are going through this, understand that there is a reason for everything. God is in control of your life and mine. And as this song says. "in time" we will be better. This is to help you and I grow. Don't give up on love. Much less God's love, becuase that is the perfect love.

    Tx. It's nice to know I'm not alone. Life is hard enough as it is for us to have to deal with these unstable emotions too. However it will get better in time, I believe strongly. We dated for 3yrs+ too. We tried again several times but it always went south with a big fight. We stayed friends too but never had to see each other. Now I was for his family as a contractor on contract, so I see him every week & realizing his feelings are dead it's killing me slowly everytime I see him or know that he's around. Cause now he disapears whenever he knows I'm around. It hurts cause my feelings are still clear as day. He tries to avoid crossing my path every chance he gets and we were just great friends until I expressed my still existing emotions towards him. Good to know I'm not alone, but I don't like the idea of anyone else going through this, cause it's too much to handle.

    I just broke up with my boyfriend last week and this is the only thing that's actually helping me cope. He's a good person and deserves more than to be happy, as well as I. I just wish it had been me. It's hard not to text or phone him, since our relationship is long distance - I'm smiling knowing that it's the best thing for both of us, even though we may not realize it. Sigh. *Prays*.

    It'll all get better in time. All heartaches and pain will heal, maybe not now, but I know at the right place and at the right time.
    For two and a half years, I'm with someone whom I really love. My firs bf. Ehehe. But maybe its just the way its supposed to be. Now I'm trying to forget all the memries and heal a wounded heart. Be strong! That's what I'm doin right now.

    Love this song. It is about a woman who was hurt really bad by her cheating husband or lover. She feels she can't live without him and even blames herself for having done something wrong to make him cheat on her. She still loves him, but the trust has been shattered and she feels he doesn't return the same love to her that she feels for him. However, in time she begins to find herself and learn to be without him. She realizes that she has to let him go for her own healing. Beautiful song.

    This song breaks my heart. Me and my boyfriend lived together for a year, and hes the only person who is ever really there. Well he broke up with me and I can't enjoy anything. I cry daily, hourly even. I came back home to my parents for a few days becuase I couldn't bare being alone in my apartment. I can never understand how someone can walk out of ur life and act like ur dead to them. My heart literally aches. I honestly feel my heart is actually breaking. :(

    Not only does this song relate to relationships, it relates to problems in your family, or even friends that You had fights with. This song really helped me after a very crappy day. My best friend and I got into a fight, my ex wants me back but then just went with another girl (my friend), then an old flare of mine has a new gf who thinks I'm a threat and is sending me alot of hate mail. What's worse, she's a best friend to my life long friend that I've known since pre-k. This song really spoke to me and said, its going to hurt but it will get better eventually. You just have to believe and wait.

    My dad passed away on Thanksgiving after a 3 month battle with cancer. When I heard this song on the radio recently, I started to cry a bit because even though this is so obviousely a love song, there is a good chunk in this song that totally relates to how I feel losing my dad (He was too young, only 57) and how I feel a mixture of sadness, guilt and anticipation about living my life without him.

    I was married to my highschool sweetheart for 15 years-- had 4 wonderful, beautiful boys together only to find that my world would become shattered in a matter of moments by an affair. I walked away from the only secure thing in my life since I was 16 yrs old. Everything I had built, everything I had worked hard for, every dream that I had I walked away from. When I heard this song for the first time I had to pull over in the car because I began to cry because I knew from that moment on I deserved happiness, I deserved to be loved in an unconditional manner and I deserved to be strong. Thank you for such a well written and appropriate timed song.

    Yah this song is really great. Even though loosing someone special you have to think thatu will be ok in time and try to learn loving someone and maybe he will be much better than ur ex right. It really helps me. A week ago me and my bf brokeup I do really love him but we decided to go on our seperate ways it hurts but that's reality right. We have to accept it. And still be proud of ourselves.

    This song is talks about how someone is feeling after a breakup. They feel down and out, and that they have lost everything because that person meant so much to them. Now that their special someone is gone, they say yes of course it will hurt, but it'll all get better in time. This song also talks about how you can be doing other things to keep your mind busy, but the thoughts of what use to be can still come to mind. It will hurt, there is doubt about that, but everything in life takes time. You just need to put your mind to it and keep going strong.

    This song is exactly how I'm feeling right now, me and my baby's father of 2 years are about to break up, we just can't be together anymore for various of reasons, and even though I love him so much, its just not going to work out. Even though we have a baby boy together, he will always be in my life and in my heart. I'll love you forever boo, and even though we hurting right now it will all get better in time. Hopefully we will be together in the future and be the family that we wanted to be.

    This song means soo much to me because I feel the same way about this guy. He used me for his sexual pleasures but I really did wanna be with him, but I can't accept the fact that even if we do get back together that it's still gonna be an act all over again. But yeah, this song is awesome and it's really helping me deal with that jerk!

    You know what ling you hurt me so much. You bring total damage to my life. This song uplifts my spirit somehow. Konsensya mo na yan dahil hindi ako ang nanloko syo, ikaw. Someday, maybe not now, ill be fine. I will prove to you na mali ang piliin mo sya over me. Its your lost. Maybe I really don't deserve you. Because you let me trust you, but late to find out I'm believing in lies. It will all get better in time.

    Sometimes you can only feel the importance of that person when they're gone. Contrary to all the explanations I've read about break ups, I, broke up with my boyfriend 3 months ago. He is so gentleman and very caring, he always make sure that I'm okay and at the same time he always find a way to communicate with me even we're in a long distance relationship, his almost perfect for me but of course since nobody's perfect I found myself not enjoying the relationship anymore, that I always think I deserve more than him, I always find a way to make an argument with him and it always ended up me breaking up with him, It always happen every time, even everyday, the relationship that we had gets even boring.

    I was a actually the one who cheated on my girlfriend at the time. Like the person above said everything happens for a reason. It was in Gods plans, (no not that I cheat) but it was allowed so that from this experience I learn. I almost lost the love of my life. I apologized and man did I realize that you don't know what you have until its gone! Today I'm happily married. God is the center of our marriage I'm happy but without God I'd be back to the same ol Me. With God everything is Possible.

    My high school love. My first love. I fought to keep our relationship alive for 8 years. Planned and had a beautiful son. So much hurt so much pain. I seeked God and he helped me. Leave the pain behind. I am moving forward with a beautiful memory that I am thankful for. Our son. I wish him the best. No matter how much you love a person it doesn't mean they love you just as much. Accepting it is the hardest thing to do. But moving forward is the best thing to do. It will all get better in time!

    Circumstances will always be different some may have been cheated on some may have been dumped with unreasonable excuses or in some cases its simply life. Regardless of why the first step is accepting that the relationship is over and the person is no longer in your life. The memories will always be with you but yes, it all gets better in time. At the beginning you will be haunted with the past but don't forget to live in the present and hope for the future! If you were the better lover then don't settle for less. Remember your worth and just keep moving forward.

    Hi guys, I know how you feeling to be dumped and cheated by the person you love and trust the most, its really devastating. And it feels like there's no more reason to live your life. I've been there also but I'm glad I have made it. I survived and moved on,. You guys can do the same. Just believe in urself and have faith in God. Everything happens for a reason. I know its hard in the beggining but I'm telling you it will be worth it. If you think you did and gave ur best but still its not enough then its time to move on and let go. Everyone deserves to be happy. There are a lot of wonderful, amazing people waiting to meet you. If you really want to be with the wrong one, how much more to be with the right one comes.

    My boyfriend of two years broke up with me 8 days ago. He said he doesn't love me the way he used to before. I'm absolutely devastated and I don't know what to do. I keep reading the lyrics to this song and I can relate to everything it says, but I'm still hurting so badly. I don't know how I can handle this. I could never forget this guy. He's absolutely amazing like you wouldn't believe.

    I have been married to my husband for 21 years, and we have two children, and we have been together since I was a kid. But, on Valentine's Day he decided that he didn't want to be married anymore. I thought I had dealt with everything he could do to me (unfaithfulness, financial struggles, selfishness) and still loved him with everything I had. This song is something that constantly brings tears, but also reminds me to that "it will all be better in time).

    I was with my husband and father to my kids since I was a kid myself. He was my whole life, I love him with everything I have. Now since September we have been separated because of me finding out he cheated on me! And to top it off he moved in with her when he left our home. Now that it is so cold outside and I am so depressed every time this song comes on I start crying. I don't understand why it is so easy for him to move on. I don't understand why he didn't fight for our family. But yet everyday I wake up, do my hair and make up and smile. I need to let myself be happy, although I am dieing inside. Everyones sees me and thinks I am taking it all so well, because on the outside I do not show how sad and broken I really am. Everyone says time will heel it all, but I am still waiting for that moment to come.

    This song really reminds me of someone who hurt me the most.
    The one I really loved so much and dedicated evrything that I do. The first time I heard this song, I just realized that at the end of the day, there's no use of holding on to someone's memories. As days went on, things get better. And now, I'm happy being with someone new who I can share the rest of my life with. ! :)

    My and I broke up a month ago, this song, inspires me in some ways to move forward. To live without that someone you wish and long for to be with is so hard to bear, but I'm trying right now. Hope I can deal this kind of hardship I'm facing right now. I've regret every fight that we had before, it weakened our relationship, I've hurt her so many times I know. I was hurt too that's why I'm now giving time for ourselves to reflect and restore those heartaches we've caused to each other. She might have someone else right now, I know she has already, what I need to do is to accept the things that might have been happening at her end right now. I thought she would be just happy with me, I mean, I'm the only person that can make happy, but I proved my self wrong now. She is now in a relationship and theres nothing I can do but be happy for her. I still have a strong feeling for her I think this will never fade away. My feeling still remain the same for her, nothing has changed. "It's gonna hurt when it heals too" it hurts me much as days pass by. I don't want to learn to forget her. I love her so much.

    My (former best friend) and I did everything together! We hung out everyday and if we weren't with each other we were on the phone or txting. We both played it off as being just friends until he moved away and things got more complicated. We maintained our relationship but we were in this in between stage that we weren't quite friends anymore (even though we had never been physical the emotional relationship was there). So there had to be a decision made and I flew down to see him and before I could even bring up "the talk" he told me he had feelings for me. Wonderful! I was so happy! And relieved! Sadly it didn't stay that way and a few days later he told me it was a mistake what he said and took it back. Then he wanted things to go back just as they were which I couldn't do. The friendship ended and I feel a piece of me is missing and I don't know if he's hurting as much as me but I know he is hurt because he hurt me. Anyways, this was one of our favorite songs by Leona. Never thought I would be singing these words about our relationship. Stay strong everyone! Things will get better in time.

    Continued from the last comment on the bottom.
    I lost all self respect for just to be with her or by trying to get her back. She cheated on me, but for some reason, I can't get mad at her for more than a minute. Since the day I found out all that she had done, I had forgiven her. All I wanted was to be with and I still do. In my head, I thought I had a chance and this was not the end. But now, it seems like the end. She's happy with some other guy and having the time of her life. I am just always depressed and have to hide it almost everywhere I go.

    This song is sooo touching! It inspires me to get over my ex-bf, I was with him for 4 years & didn't even know we were doing bad, to the point to break up with me. I felt exacting like ashley18, I was stabbed in the back! He doesn't love me, doesn't want anything to do with me, that hurts really bad, he was my bf & my best friend and just to end it like that ugh I still ask myself why, I'll never know! I believe that he'll realize someday that he really did love me, I was a good girl bc that has happend to me before but it'll be too late. I can't wait for that day!

    I totally understand you, because I see my ex everyday (we study at the same university) and I have to see him with another girl. It's hard for me too but it will be better once and somebody is waiting for us. I hope so. :) After 2 years and a couple of months he broke up with me and my feelings haven't gone yet. He doesn't care about my feelings and it seems he is over us. It hurts very much like you too. Girls and boys we deserve a better life with someone who can love us as we can love them. :(

    I love this song…but it's making me cry even more…my boyfriend broke up with me 2 days ago…it hurts so much…I just want to die…we're still friends…but each time I hear his voice on the phone…I get even sadder…. What do I do from here? When things I love leave me…I never try to stop them…and this time, I felt like doing those things in romance movies where the girl says something like "Please don't leave…choose me, love me …let me be the one to make you happy." …but I didn't…I don't want to seem pathetic… and I still think I deserve it. When he called me today…I was so confused…he's taking it so well, how can he do that…I know he loved me too once…so how can he sound like that? Right now…I can't even smile. Before I met him…everyday was so lonely…and I never really realized how sad it really was…and now that I have to return to that life…I just want to die. Two days ago…I was the happiest girl in the world…but now I'm just falling apart.

    I met this guy and thought I honestly fell in love, and thought it was being returned. He would tlk so nice and sweet to me as if he cared. Even tole me not to move and move in wit him. To find out the whole time he was playing me cuz he had another chic on the side that he str8 up denied. Guys are dogs. All of them have it inside. All.

    Hahaha. Irony. Its true that when you loss someone you love most is the most painful of all pains. I remember the time that my ex leave me I wish I could die that very moment. But it did not happened. Hehe. It hurts. But I said to myself that it was God's plan that we separated. That somewhere out there's a person that will love me completely. Its hard to let go. But when you get there its better.

    When I first heard this song, I thought that the violin music and piano music mixed was sad so every time it was on the radio, I cried! Now it comes on the radio and I never cry at all!
    It is such a good song. I like it. It is good. It is fab. It is a song. I hope she gets better soon 2 make a good rock n roll song! That way I don't have to switch stations 2 107. 9 from 102. 9 or 92. 3!

    Its the time to let go! Loving a person so dearly but there is no more you & me,. Making myself free & live my life how it should be. Its hard to live without you at first but I will be better in time. After going through the healing process of a wounded heart. I will be fine! Tnx!,. This song inspired me too much to let go & move on. Yes I will!

    I love this song. I am in a 6 year relationship and it was so rough within the first 3 to 4 years of our relationship. Lots of flings snd third party but I told myself that someday he will learn to value just me. It happened wit constant prayer and hope that everything will be just fine in god's time. It happened. Nothing is really impossible if you just believe that time has it's own way of putting things in their own perspectives. I love him even more and now I can see that he will never live without me. Weee.

    I don't know what's wrong with me. We've been off for 2 years already. And just recently, I saw him. And my hearts started beating again! Is this normal!?!?! I really thought I've moved on completely already. But then, I saw him. Then, memories came rushing back. And now. Weeks have past since that day, he's still always on my mind. Up until now, I never found anyone that could match up to him. And it's hard, coz this state of mind hinders me from opening myself to other guys. :( I really want to move on already. He doesn't care about me. He doesn't think about me anymore. And I on the other hand, keeps thinking about him. :(

    So. I have listen to this song for three days now. And I still can't get tire of it. I'm living the song. I knew this guy and he turn my world around, even when we were opposites all of him was perfect to me. But. Seems that life has diffrent things prepared for each. Know we have taken some distance because it was not working and its so hard to forget him, so hard to not think about him. But it hurts when it heals too. Love this song! I heard it just when I needed!

    I like this song, it was written for all person that can love, give love, give her or his own life for the love that they believe, a pure and strong love, but if it' s not enough for the other person, you must let him or her go, because anyone (women o men) deserve a real love, not lies, it is not fair to suffer, even spend time thinking for someone who doesn' t desrve it. I think God has a person for everyone and you can bet that you deserve someone better that him or her so you must trust that the right person for you are still waiting.

    Eventhough I just met this guy recently, but he sure knows how to turn my world up-side-down. It does not matter how much I showed him, it is never enough, I repeatedly told him that I like him because for who he is. It makes me happy whenever I talked to him. He made me feel really special. I would give my whole world to him and open his eyes to let him she how beautiful the wolrd could be. At the end, he has to let me go because we do not walk on the same path, he said. It hurts me so much when I thought I have the love of life, and now it suddenly disappear. It makes me happy when I thought about him. How we had the most wonderful dinner on our first date. The time we were at starbucks and then walgreen. I have to let him go some how. It will heal better in time. My heartache, but I will feel better. I really hope he is happy with some one he truly loves out there. *Best wishes to you V*. I miss you.

    I'm a divorced man whose divorce will be final in two days. For one year, I have lived without my wife for something she did but I still desperately missed her. Then I heard this song. "I'm gonna smile because I deserve to" carries a lot of weight when you're bummed about an end of a relationship. Yes, it will hurt, and probably so for a long time, but hang in there. Everything gets better in time. :)

    I am recently heartbroken. I was sure me and him would last forever. He gave me a feeling no one can ever replace. He was truly amazing, but it just didn't work out. Because of me. I have layed here and cried for seemless hours then this song came on the radio and I knew I had hope. Yeah no guy could ever replace him, but some guy could make me happy again. Even though it feels like my heart was shattered into a million pieces (and it was) I know that I can live without him. I don't want to but I can. We were like Nathan and Haley off One Tree Hill. Our favorite show. In the show they stay together, but in reality we don't. You know what though, it really will all get better in time. (If I try).

    I'm gonna have to agree and disagree with this song because in so many ways it is gonna get better but sometimes it doesn't!. Leona has an amazing voice and she has probably been through the same things that you have!. So you can relate to her. If your going through this smile like leona says! =) remember there are more guys that will love you like he did or said he did.

    Omg! You girls are funny. Try this. Being married for 15 years and not to your true love, but you still love your husband. Even though you still love your husband, you start to think of divorce due to things that have happened. Then your true love enters back into your life but is unattainable because one - he's on the other side of the country (literally, he's on the southern Atlantic coast and I am in Alaska) and two - because he's married. That's the same as losing him all over again and then losing out on my husband at the same time. Poignant isn't it? This song makes me cry everytime I hear it.

    This song is really helping me through a tough time at the min. I have recently just split up with my boyfriend of 3yrs, we were living together and had made plans for the future. But unfortunetly things havnt worked out, and we broke up a week ago. I'm devasted, and can't imagine my life without him (we've been together since I was 16). But this song is helping me to think of the positives, I need time for myself now and to get my teenage yrs back, see my friends more and in time I'll hopefully be strong enough to move on.

    I just broke up with my first love also! It hurt really bad, but when I heard this song playing on the radio, I fell in love with it! It does remind me a lot about him, but I know whatever happens it will all get better in time. I do still have contact with my ex, because we still go to school and he is now dating one of my best friends which really sucks! But yeah I give a big shout out to all the broken hearts out there! Peace out.

    It's been a couple months after my first love has ended. This song has also reminded me of him just as millions of others who are just out of relationships remind them of their bf and gfs. I still have contact with my bf. Well. Until last night of me drunk dialing him and making a total a* out of myself with telling him I love him and want to be with him. What sucks is he want's to be with me and wanted to get married. But too much stuff has happened and it's all to complicated now for us to be together. I keep reminding myself that it will get better in time and I just have to keep moving forward. So here is a shout out to everyone who has just gotten out of a relationship or will be ending. It will all get better in time. Just keep your head up and keep moving forward.

    Super! I can relate to it. The first time we broke up. I feel so lost and alone. His memories lingers and I can't let go. But this song gives me an idea that no matter how hard your going through after the misery youve thought comes your way, theres still a shining sun. And tears don't fall forever. Time is the best healer though. Btw, it will all get better in time.

Of course I knew it from the start that he bound to crash my precious heart yet I still gamble my feelings just because I was always happy to be around him-he had a way to make me really happy. He had full of surprises. H e made me fall for him and still am. Fretzel oh my gwapo. Our love is forbidden but I never regret I've loved and met you, became part of me. It ouch we cannot have each other but as long as we are doing it the right way. Perhaps there might be the right time for you and me along they way. I will always love you they way I have learned when we were together.

    This song rocks. It's the best song ever. I can relate to this sooo much. I was in this situation a long time ago. He has moved on and I thought it was the end of my world, I have still loved him for a long time after the break up. But am very happy to say now that I've moved on to something waaay better than what I expected. It only took me 10 years.

    The meaning for me is identical to that of nana202008: "i luv this song it really touched my heart cuz im going through this right now cuz i dont think that i can forget about him" The first time I heard this song, I was sitting next to my boyfriend in his car as we were driving somewhere and he played it for me. I was totally oblivious because I didn't really hear the words. I didn't know that he was saying good-bye to me. But now, as I just really listened to it and then got the lyrics, I cried so hard because now I get it and my heart is truly broken and I'm hurting so bad. Thank you Leona for helping me put things into perspective.

    This song speaks to more than just those who decided to leave us without much thought. It speaks about those loves lost and gone from this world as we know it. How it hurts to lose someone and how guilt sets in when everything is finally ok. And it hurts all over again. How everything reminds you of them and how it's just not fair. Love you C. Are. Wherever you are.

    This song is not only touching but it takes you right there to what people call "THAT TIME".
    That time when you loved hard but the one you loved was not feeling the same about you. It takes you back to that time when your heart didn't have to heart to say goodbye. It takes you back to a time when you first made love and never lost that "first time feeling"!
    Leona is the best thus far I can't wait for the next hit! Grrreat Job Leona Lewis!

    I agree with sdsneonpinkluv this song is beautiful and amazing. But more than that, its an insparation. It shows that if someone is treating you bad, then you shouldnt stick around to get treated like dirt. No one deserves to be treated like that. That a abusive relationship. No one deserves one of those. So if you find yourself in a abusive relationship its best to end it now. But don't worry ot will all get better in time.

    Hi. When I heard this song I finally understand what it means. I could really relate to this song. Well. Break ups are hard. To the point that when I walk to certain places I could end up being on the verge of tears. At night I just get haunted by him in my dreams. Almost everyday I wake up in tears thinking of how much I have missed him. But yes. I chose it this way. Because I believe that love works both ways. He likes to control and is very opinionated. I can't even voice out my opinions. And the times that I am right, I had to shut up as I really have no say.
    No matter how much I love him but its best this way. No matter how much I am hurting, it is better for me cos I can finally be set free. I deserve to be happy too and I am sure there will be someone better, destined to be with me.
    It will definitely get better in time.

    I love this song. I can relate to it so much I cry every time I hear it. It has been the longest summer ever without him && hes changed. I have been thinking about him non stop I really couldn't even turn on the tv or even walk down the street without having something remind me of all the good times we had together. I would do anything to go back to those days I miss him so much when I see him at school it just kills me knowing we're barely even friends anymore. I really hope things do get better in time; I'm not giving up yet. He is worth the fight but I'm not gonna fight forever. I really thought I couldn't live without him I actually was planning my life with him. It hurts me so bad he has absolutely no idea. && no matter how hard it is ill be Fine without him.

    Okay, first of all, let me say that I love this song. I can somehow relate to it, but its really not for me. You can tell that its a really sad song, but you just can't help listening to it, you know. The song definitely hooks you, and pull you towards that lost feelings.
    Meaning:.
    I think that the meaning is that a girl is still in love with someone she was with before. But something happened that made them seperate from each other. The girl was hurting badly, but she's trying to hide her pain. She's trying to make the hole in her heart heal. But no matter how hard she tries, something is always there to remind him of her.

    This song to me feels really sad. It has a important meaning to it. The meaaning is that your bf has alot to do in your life but he can't control you. You are your own person. You don't do things when someone tells you to do them. Honestly if you find yourself in a controlive relationship sometimes its best to let that person go. You may love them, you may care for them, but they are not really caring for you if they treat you like this. Its not love in a relationship like this its hate. If you really loved someone you would want them to always be happy. And if they arent leting you expirence happiness, then you, and onlyb you should end the realationship. So now, you8 can really smile because you deserve to.

    The good thing about this song is that it gives you the feeling of allowing yourself to feel the pain but knowing that it's still okay because it will all get better in time. I am inlove with an unavailable man. And he is my world. I keep on thinking that I will emotionally die without him. But now, even though I know that if I move on it will hurt like hell. I am looking forward to the silver lining of this gray cloud that I am on right now. It's just empowering to know that someone out there is feeling the hope that I am not feeling yet but will surely come.

    I heard this song for the first time the day my relationship ended and it gave me so much strength. I listen to it every day. Every time I just want to call him and go back.
    I love the part about thinking he's at the door b/c that's how I always feel with the phone. Also asking how he can put his feelings aside that easily. This is m hope song. Idk what I would have done without it.

    I found this song just at the time when I needed it most. I loved the phrase "It's time I let you go so I can be free". I realised it's time to let him go even if I don't want to. At the end of the day, I will only torture myself more if I hang on to him. I finally woke up when I heard this song and had the courage to say Goodbye.

    I think this means that no matter what happens, some things are not meant to be, and this means that no matter how much hurts, we learn to stand up and move on. Because we live, and we learn from our mistakes, and when we move on, learning from an experience is better than reminiscing what might have been. Coz we must learn and we will be "better in time".♥.

    I been in a long distance relationship and I can say that I been in love with an old man, he is such amazing guy maybe I'm too young for him but I love him so much, I don't know now whats happening in our relationship, before we talk everyday but now he talk to me once a week only and I can feel hes changed, I love him with all my heart and I didn't expect that he will be cold as ice to me now, I want to start a family with him, my friends keep telling me that I'm young and pretty and I have lots of suitors better than him, but I don't understand myself, sya lang ang hinahanap ng puso ko, I'm willing to be fool for the rest of my life bcoz of him, ganun ko sya kamahal, but why he is taking me for granted bakit ganun, I give my all and best pero hindi parin enough? Lagi nalang ako umiintindi sa kanya, I don't ask 2 be hes 1st prioritize in his life pero sana bigyan nya ko ng time kahit konti lang, if wala pa din maybe if he will not change until this december, I will move on, I deserve to be happy. I love this song and I know I will be ok soon, maybe I cannot get over him now but swear to god I will be fine, for the sake of my family.

    Its like when you love ur girl so much for about 1 year and 10 months. I treat her as the princess of my heart and soul. But a days now. My bestfrend told me that the gurl I love has other boyfriend. I ask her to broke up with the other guy but she sed to me that she can't broke up with him coz she loves the guy. When I hear that it feels like a knife stabbing at my heart. It kills me slowly. The pain I feel. And she doesn't care about what I feel. So hard to move on but I have to do it. Coz like the lyrics on this song.
    I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to.
    It'll all get better in time.
    Maybe she's not the right one. But still I love her so much. More than anything in this world. If she's happy with other guy. Even though its hard to accept. I'm happy for her. I just hope that the guy she chose don't hurt her. I love you still mhie.

Nothing for me to regret, the only thing I feel regret is I haven't done things in life that I love to. Looking back in the past, I now only wanna wish him with the best luck in life and get the happy family with kids and wife, hope she will love him as a true love as I ever loved him.

    Well. . Its wrong if somebody says that only girls are going through bad times about their love.
    Its really not about guys or girls, anyone can go through this damn thing.
    I ve been apart with my girl friend for more than a year and everyday is hard and even haridest coz whenever I think of her I fall in love again coz no one makes me feel like her, she is my love and will always be. I haven't seen her for a sucha long time and it really hurts me inside but everyday as it goes by reminds more of her and I just want her back in my life as it seems to be incomplete without her and when I happened to listen this lovely song I really felt like my heart is crying the loudest it can but huhhh, , I know she would never be back.
    But on the upside it really relieves when I hear that she quite happy and living her life at its fullest.
    Why does some misses some one so much and the other one doesn't even care, I really feel lonely.

    Well how I feel bout this song is that it's going to hurt you when someone that you loved did you wrong or broke up with you. But it will be ok soon. And you may cry alot but it's ok you will be ok.
    This song makes me think bout my relationship I'm in now he has done me so wrong but I still love him so much and I hope we can get threw and sometimes I just cry bout what he did to me and I been trying to forget it but it is so hard and I can't let go and sometimes I wish I could.

    Wow, first off, I just went threw the worst break up of my life, we dated a year and a half, I gave him everything I had. And like it says in the song, "I couldn't turn on the TV Without something there to remind me" I can't do anything, I can't watch tv, listen to music, eat, even go on walks. It sucks. But I met a new guy now, and hes amazing. And it will get better in time.
