on Amazon Music

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even with our fists held high
It never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die...

I didn't want us to...

    This song is about a breakup but in the video it’s shows what looks to be a funeral home and whenever she looks in to a mirror you can’t see her reflection so I think that Kelly has died and when you carefully listen to the song it sounds like she has died

    I think that she is pulling away from a relationship because things didn't work out so she is already gone

    This song is about how she loves him so much, but know that it wasn't meant to be. So she slowly pulls away from the realtionship knowing it wasn't going to work out, even though they tried. She knows that she loves him so much and just wants the best for the both of them and is Already Gone from it.

    They both love each other, and she wants the best for him. She believes that breaking up is the best option in the long term, because she doesn't see the relationship lasting forever. She loves him enough to let him go, and wishes that he will move on.

    She is making it easy for him, so she will end the relationship for them, she is "already gone".

    I had a similar experience were I loved my best friend Ryan as a friend and I had to let him go because it was affecting his relationship with his girlfriend. I wish he would have stopped me and actually talked to his girlfriend but he didn't and I am mad that he didn't care for me as much as I cared for him.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song is self-explanatory. She loves him enough to let him go. They're going their seperate ways. It didn't work out, so they must move on.

    The way I see it, this is about two people who didn't mean to fall in love, but did even though the relationship would never work and so now she's telling him she still loves him, but "someone has to say goodbye" so she's "already gone".

    when you care and love someone deeply, you always want the best for him eventho he used to break your heart and loving him was one of the wonderful moment of your life.

    you have to sacrifice and let go the feeling. waiting for a sign and somebody like him that can make you smile and be loved again. i think i need to break the wall and the fear to love someone. its just too hard for a hard loving woman like me to open up. my weakness.

    "Already Gone" is about loving someone but having to let them go. This couple has tried to save their relationship, but no matter what they do, it doesn't work out. They care and have respect for each other but can't be together for a reason that is never clarified in the song. The narrator knows that being together is only hurting them both and to save herself and her partner from pain, she cuts off the relationship.

    With that in mind, the lyrics should pretty much explain themselves.
