"WHEN THE HEARTACHE IS OVER" as written by and Graham Stack John Reid....
(G. Stack, J. Reid)
Producers: Brian Rawlings and Mark Taylor
Album: Twenty Four Seven (99)

Once in a lifetime you find
Someone to show you the way
Someone to make your decisions
But I let you lead me astray
Who did you think you were fooling
Said you were missing me blind
But the truth is I knew you were lying
You were using me time after time

When the heartache is over
I know I won't be missing you (missing you)
Won't look over my shoulder
'Cause I know that I can live without you
Oh live without you
Oh I can live without you

Time to move on with my life now
Leaving the past all behind
I can make my own decisions
It was only a matter of time
Sometimes I look back in anger
Thinking about all the pain
But I know that I'm stronger without you
And that I'll never need you again

When the heartache is over
I know I won't be missing you (missing you)
Won't look over my shoulder
'Cause I know that I can live without you
Oh live without you
Oh I can live without you

When the heartache is over
I know I won't be missing you
Won't look over my shoulder
'Cause I know that I can live without you
When the heartache is over
I know I won't be missing you (missing you)
Won't look over my shoulder
'Cause I know that I can live without you
Yeah I can live without you
Live without you

    General CommentThis song plays like an anthem in my head. It tells a story of a woman who is trying to heal the pain caused by a relationship that went wrong because too much trust was put into the partner. Now the woman is left with memories and has to learn to live without the person she once loved.

    General CommentI remember, when I first heard this song, it was when I was a student and had just came out of a really bad relationship. This song was my anthem it gave me sooo much strength. When the heartache is over we realise we are better without people who have only given us pain.When the heartache is over we find the strength and the self-esteem that we had lost during the relationship.

    General Commenti bought the cd (twenty four seven) but never really listened to it. i listened to when the heartache is over a couple times and thought it was nice but nothing special. fastforward just under a year. my bf of a year cheated on me. this song became like food and water and oxygen to me. i just lay in bed for about two days with this on repeat crying my eyes out. id never felt so much pain. but the more i listened the better i felt. thats when i got angry. "Better Be Good To Me" and copious amounts of alanis morisette got me through that. and now ? "The Bitch Is Back"

    Love tina and this song
