Let's go

What happened to the man who used to take me straight into misery
I want you back and now I must admit it shames me
How could this be?
Tell me what's this desperation
'Cause I don't recognize, he's changed
I think I made a bad mistake

'Cause once I ran away
I love you since the day, the day I broke your heart
It's more than I could take
I love you since the day, the day we fell apart
Now everything is coming undone
'Cause you were the chance I can't afford to waste
I love you since the day, the day we fell apart

I must admit the grass is so much greener on the other side
Since you left I noticed now you're so much meaner
And it's something I think I like
Tell me what's this desperation
'Cause I don't recognize, he's changed
I think I made a bad mistake

'Cause once I ran away
I love you since the day, the day I broke your heart
It's more than I could take
I love you since the day, the day we fell apart
Now everything is coming under
'Cause you were the chance I can't afford to waste
I love you since the day, the day we fell apart

I made a bad mistake
Used to pray for space
Drowning you one more time
And mend my wicked ways

'Cause once I ran away
I love you since the day, the day I broke your heart
It's more than I could take
I love you since the day, the day we fell apart
Now everything is coming under (coming under)
'Cause you were the chance I can't afford to waste
I love you since the day, the day we fell apart
The day we fell apart

    General CommentIs it that she regrets breaking up with him? Is it that he's changed since they've been apart, or that she's just missing him now they're apart and is having trouble with that after-break up separation?

    Just because you intiated the break up doesnt mean you didnt rely on the person just as heavily, just means you needed to do what was right.

    What does anyone think?

    General Commenti get kind of a masochistic feeling from this song -- they broke up and it wasn't amicable at all, and they're still in that bitching-at-each-other phase and she actually finds out she likes that side of him. maybe their relationship was too mellow for her or something, but she's finding out that since they broke up, she loves him again.

    Since you left I noticed now you're so much meaner
    and it's something I think I like

    it's kind of a self-ruining cycle, because if they got back together, she'd probably get bored of him again and they'd break up again until it possibly culminated in another reunion. this song is remarkably different from anything kelly's done before and it's really awesome.
