"Never Again" as written by Justin R. Timberlake and Brian Kelly Mcknight....
Would have given up my life for you
Guess it's true what they say about love
It's blind
Girl, you lied straight to my face

Lookin' in my eyes
And I believed you 'cause I loved you more than life
And all you had to do was apologize
You didn't say you're sorry

I don't understand
You don't care that you hurt me
And now I'm half the man
That I used to be when it was you and me

You didn't love me enough
My heart may never mend
And you'll never get to love me again

Sadness has me at the end of the line
Helpless, I watched you break this heart of mine
Loneliness only wants you back here with me
Common sense knows that you're not good enough for me
And all you had to do was apologize and mean it

But you didn't say you're sorry
I don't understand
You don't care that you hurt me
And now I'm half the man

That I used to be when it was you and me
You didn't love me enough
My heart may never mend
And you'll never get to love me

Wish like Hell I could go back in time
Maybe then I could see how
Forgiveness says that I should give you one more try
But it's too late
Its over now

You didn't say you're sorry
I don't understand
You don't care that you hurt me

And now I'm half the man
That I used to be when it was you and me
You didn't love me enough
My heart may never mend

And you'll never get to love me again
Again
Again, again, again
Never get to love me

    General CommentBeautiful song. Forgiveness would be there if only she would apologize. He wants nothing more than for her to come back but she is not sorry for hurting him. 'You'll never get to love me again' is the phrase he uses to rebuild his strength. It's a way of taking the hurt away by making it his decision to be apart and not hers.

    General Commentthis has got to be one of the prettiest songs i had ever heard in my life. i about cried when i heard it. i know what it feels like to feel that way. i don't care about that britney&justin bullshit, i'm not into that gossip stuff. its just a beautiful song where ever he got the inspiration from.

    General CommentIt's about a break up, obviously his with Britney, but still a great, great song. It's about being hurt due to the other person's cheating.

    General CommentI agree with the above. Its a really heart felt and special song about breaking up with someone that you really loved. quite surprised that something so beautiful and unique could come from a pop boy.

    General CommentVery very moving, specially if you've been somehow betrayed by the person you loved the most.

    "And loneliness only wants you back here with me
    Common sense knows that you're not good enough for me..."

    Damn, if he only knew...If I was strong enough to let him know how he hurt me and how much he meant to me. Maybe then I could close that chapter for once, after all these years...

    General CommentI think JT is saying that eventhough she cheated, he loved her so much, he'd have the capability of forgiving her had she only told him and been honest. 'Honesty' plays a part in a lot of JT's songs. It's perhaps the most important quality in any relationship. It's a great message to us all that he is portraying; Love blinds you to many things, makes you vulnerable, leaves you weak. Be wary when you love. Always remain wary.

    General Commentthis is the most heartbreaking song i've ever heard. the no backup singers make it have such raw emotion you can really feel his pain with it. I almost felt like crying when i heard this. And I'm not a Justin fan...

    General CommentYou know, it takes a hell of a long time to build trust in a relationship and only a second or two to break it. Great song, great lyrics, true meaning!
