"From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart" as written by and Eric Foster White....
Never look back, we said
How was I to know I'd miss you so?
Loneliness up ahead, emptiness behind
Where do I go?

And you didn't hear
All my joy through my tears
All my hopes through my fears
Did you now, still I miss you somehow

From the bottom of my broken heart
There's just a thing or two I'd like you to know
You were my first love
You were my true love
From the first kisses to the very last rose
From the bottom of my broken heart
Even though time may find me somebody new
You were my real love, I never knew love
'Til there was you
From the bottom of my broken heart

Baby, I said
Please stay, give our love a chance for one more day
We could have worked things out
Taking time is what love's all about

But you put a dart through my dreams
Through my heart
And I'm back where I started again
Never thought it would end

From the bottom of my broken heart
There's just a thing or two I'd like you to know
You were my first love,
You were my true love
From the first kisses to the very last rose
From the bottom of my broken heart
Even though time may find me somebody new
You were my real love, I never knew love
'Til there was you
From the bottom of my broken heart

You promised yourself
But to somebody else
And you made it so perfectly clear
Still I wish you were here now

From the bottom of my broken heart
There's just a thing or two I'd like you to know
You were my first love
You were my true love
From the first kisses to the very last rose

From the bottom of my broken heart
Even though time may find me somebody new
You were my real love, I never knew love
'Til there was you
From the bottom of my broken heart

Never look back, we said
How was I to know I'd miss you so?

    General Comment'Never look back, we said/How was I to know I'd miss you so?'
    A couple was at a mutual agreement not to dwell on their past relationship. Britney agreed, but now she regrets it because she realises how much she missed him.
    'Loneliness up ahead/Emptiness behind/Where do I go?'
    Britney is stuck, catch 22? She sees nothing but loneliness in a future withough him and she cannot return to the past, because he is gone and they have promised to never look back.

    the chorus is basically saying, even though her heart is broken, she still wants him to know that he was her first and true love, no matter what happens later on in life and he will always have a special place in her heart.

    Britney pleaded him, this suggesting that he is going somewhere, to stay but he refused. His refusal was like a dark through her heart and her dreams.

    This guy promised himself to somebody else. This adds a new element to the story. He may be leaving her because either he loved the other person more, or he had an arranged marriage or something to this girl.

    General CommentI love the beat, the lyrics, the song itself, it made me like Britney a bit. It even brought out the artist inside of her.
