"I'm Gonna Find Another You" as written by and Mayer....
It's really over
You made your stand
You got me crying
As was your plan
But when my loneliness is through
I'm gonna find another you

You take your sweaters
You take your time
You might have your reasons
But you will never have my rhyme
I'm gonna sing my way away from blue
I'm gonna find another you

When I was your lover
No one else would do
If I'm forced to find another
I hope she looks like you
Yeah, and she's nicer too

So go on, baby
Make your little getaway
My pride will keep me company
And you just gave yours all away
Oh, now I'm gonna dress myself for two
Once for me, and once for someone new
I'm gonna do some things you wouldn't let me do
I'm gonna find another you

    General Commentthis song is great. Its bascially a break up song. He just got out of a relationship, he is sad to see her go, but realizes he has a chance to find someone better. even if that sounds vain. But it sounds to me like she was the mean one, so he is moving on with his life, and will find someone who will treat him right.

    General CommentIt's got that Ray Charles soul to it. Absolutely love it.

    Moral of the album = relationship sucks! But we are attracted to them for some masochistic reason.

    General CommentI am a very sad boy
    my girlfriend broke up with me and basically forgot about me

    but hearing this song puts the biggest grin on my face everytime. This is like the magic cure to heartbreak

    General CommentI'm surprised nobody's made the link between Slow Dancing in a burning room, Dreaming with a broken heart, In repair and Im Gonna find another you. Those four songs are sort of a chronological sort of recount of a break up, showin the stages n all that of recovering i reckon.

    General CommentThis reminded me of a sixties song, so I'm under the impression that it's a cover. But yeah, it is basically letting go of him/her and finding someone new. But, sometimes we don't completely let go of someone, because we still want some of their good points, maybe because those were the reasons we fell in love with them. So we take those good points with us when we're searching for that someone new. But of course, you want that person to be a better version of the one who left you, not a worse version. That would be totally masochistic.
