(Ooooo, yeah)

"I don't think I want this anymore,"
As she drops the ring to the floor
She says to herself, "You've left before," (yeah)
"This time you will stay gone, that's for sure." (yeah)

And he shouted something as
She dragged her suitcase down the path
To the driveway
She had never gone that far

Normally this would be
The time that she
Would let him talk her out of leaving
But this time, without crying,
As she got into her car, she said,

"No
'Happily Never After'
That just ain't for me
Because finally
I know
I deserve better, after all (ooooh)
I'll never let another teardrop fall." (fall)

As she drove away she starts to smile, yeah
Realized she hadn't for a while
No destination, she drove for miles
Wondering why she stayed in such denial

She was laughing about the way he shouted something as
(shouted something as)
She dragged her suitcase down the path
To the driveway (to the driveway),
She had never gone that far (oh, no)

Normally this would be, the time that she (yeah)
Would let him talk her out of leaving,
But this time, without crying,
As she got into her car, she said

"No
'Happily Never After'
That just ain't for me
(that just ain't for me)
Because finally,
I know I deserve better
After all
(that just ain't for me, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah)
I'll never let another teardrop fall."

I'm done, I'm done, said I'm so done, (so done, yeah)
I'm free, I'm free, so free
Free to feel the way I feel, yeah.

She inhales a breath she'd never breathed before
Don't want no drama no more.

'Cause she says " No
'Happily Never After' (after)
That just ain't for me" (oh, oh)

"I know (I know)
I deserve, better all (ooooh/Don't wanna be/breathe)
I know I'll never let another teardrop fall"
(I'm done, I'm done)
"No
'Happily Never After' (so done)
(I'm free, I, free)
That just ain't for me" (that just ain't for me)
because finally,
I know (I'm done, I'm done) I deserve better (so done), after all
(I'm free, I'm free)/(ooooooooo)
I'll never let another teardrop fall"

("I'm done, "I'm done" "I'm done",
"I'm done, so done, so done")

Said I'm done, I'm done, I'm done

    General Commentthis song is another unreleased song from the NEVER GONE album.. it's a really nice song.. they didnt release it because the writers gave it to Nicole from the pussycat dolls. I think BSB sings it wayy better

    My OpinionIn my opinion BSB's version is so much better than the pussycat dolls! i really wished that the boys would've released this song on there cd!!!! there way more talented in every way then the pussycat dolls could even wish to be!!!!I just love this song & has to be one of my top favorite BSB songs!!!!

    In my opinion this song is basically talking bout a divorce! how she's basically had enough, is moving on without her ex or soon to be ex husband! she basically is just remembering everything that happened! instead of her marriage be the Happily Ever After it turned out to be Happily Never After!!!!!
