Since you've been gone!!!!!

I've been listening to my darling Rock princess Kelly Clarkson all day and for some reason, I keep coming back to the song which shares the same title as this post. I still remember the first time I heard that song in 2006; the words just hit home. I could relate, even though at the time I was in a relationship that was 'happy' (don't ask me what happened to that relationship; story for another day). Anywho, today that song is even more apt now.

                                 
Remember that feeling of terrifying heartache that occurs when a relationship you treasured dearly ends? Yeah, me too; we've all been there. Anyway, after a long while, have you ever come to a place where you truly are better off because of the broken relationship; either because you matured as a result of the experience or are a better person, who understands yourself and how the world works better? If you do understand what I mean, here's where you wave your hands in the air. Better yet, put on your playlist, scroll to Kelly Clarkson's "Since you've been gone", hit therepeat button and tune out the rest of the world.

Sing along from here if you like (Yeah, you're welcome. *Chuckles*)
 
Here's the thing
We started out friends
It was cool but it was all pretend
Yeah, yeah, since you've been gone

You're dedicated
You took the time
Wasn't long till I called you mine
Yeah, yeah, since you've been gone

And all you'd ever hear me say
Is how I picture me with you
That's all you ever hear me say

But since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on, yeah yeah, thanks to you
Now I get what I want, since you've been gone

How can I put it? You put me on
I even fell for that stupid love song
Yeah yeah, since you've been gone

How come I never hear you say
I just wanna be with you why
I guess you never felt that way

But since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on, oh, yeah, yeah, thanks to you
Now I get, I get what I want
(Since you've been gone)

You had your chance, you blew it
Out of sight, out of mind
Shut your mouth, I just can't take it
Again and again and again and again

Since you've been gone
(Since you've been gone)
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on, yeah, yeah, thanks to you
(Thanks to you)
Now I get, I get what I want

Since you've been gone
I can't breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on, yeah, yeah, thanks to you, thanks to you
Now I get
(I get)
You should know, you should know
That I get, I get what I want
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

 Cheers!!!!!!!!!!
