Breathe you out, breathe you in
You keep coming back to tell me
You're the one who could have been
In my eyes I see it all so clear
It was long ago and far away
But it never disappears

I try to put it in the past
Hold on to myself and don't look back

I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under
(From under, from under, from under)

So let me go, just let me fly away
Let me feel the space between us growing deeper
That much stronger every day
Watch me now and I'll be someone new
My heart will be unbroken
It will open up for everyone but you

Even when I cross the line
It's like a lie I've told a thousand times

I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under
(From under, from under, from under)

And part of me still believes
When you say you're gonna stick around
And part of me still believes
We can find a way to work it out
But I know that we tried
Everything we could try
So let's just say goodbye forever

I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under

I don't wanna dream about
All the things that never were
Maybe I can live without
When I'm out from under
I don't wanna feel the pain
What good would it do me now
I'll get it all figured out
When I'm out from under

When I'm out from under

    so beautiful... i think its about a girl whos had her heart broken, and shes doesnt feel shes ready to deal with the pain, so she wants to wait until she comes "Out from under"


    PS- this is way better than britney spears' cover !
