Now that it’s all said and done
I can’t believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down
Like an old abandoned house
What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath
I felt as if I was in way to deep
Guess I let you get the best of me

Well I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time ago
And I never thought I’d doubt you
I’m better off without you
More than you, more than you know
I’m slowly getting closure
I guess it’s really over
I’m finally gettin’ better
Now I’m picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together
‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through
I got over you

You took a hammer to these walls
Dragged the memories down the hall
Packed your bags and walked away
There was nothing I could say,
And when you slammed the front door shut
A lot of other’s opened up
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me

Well I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time ago
And I never thought I’d doubt you
I’m better off without you
More than you, more than you know
I’m slowly getting closure
I guess it’s really over
I’m finally getting’ better
Now I’m picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together
‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through
I got over you

I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time agooo
And I never thought I’d doubt you
I’m better off without you

And I never saw it coming
I should have started running
I’m finally getting better
Now I’m picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together
And I got over you
And I got over you
And I got over you

The day I thought I’d never get through
I got over you…

    General CommentI just had a hard breakup with my girlfriend, It was so sudden and I don't think I can forget her, but this song rocks and it's basically all about how I feel right now. Great song, and I'm glad he didn't win American idol because although he was my favorite, he would have never made this record if he won.

    General CommentIt's an amazing alleviation song, something to help you get over your ex-or to tell everybody that you're finally over him/her.
    I love this song and as soon as I heard it, I put it straight on my myspace (just so I could finally tell everybody that I was done with the aftermath, that I was finally over the ex and finally getting better-and aiming to stay that way.)

    As for the meaning of the song, it's self-explanatory really (:

    General Commentthe video to me explains the song better than the actual lyrics. idk. but this song reminds me of my ex boyfriend. its kind of on his side because I just left him there a lot of times. I guess he finally realized tht he can do better than me and he deserves better than me. and he has been gone for a couple months now and has fallen inlove all over again. it just hurts to see all of this flashing before my eyes.

    General Commenti'm ashamed to admit, since he's an american idol contestant and i am an indie snob - but i really like this song. so powerful, sends shivers down my spine.

    General Comment"I felt as if I was in way to deep

    I'm pretty sure it's

    "I fell too far, as in way too deep"

    Just sayin'. Great song!
