Since U Been Gone Lyrics

Here's the thing we started out friends
It was cool but it was all pretend
Yeah yeah
Since U Been Gone

You dedicated you took the time
Wasn't long till I called you mine
Yeah Yeah
Since U Been Gone

And all you'd ever hear me say
Is...

    She's coming out of a relationship and finally feels like she can breath. Just be herself for the first time. she's happy a weight has been lifted. She's not sad or bitter though but happy to have been through the experience it has made her stronger.

    I remember when i was a kid that this was my favorite song (even if i didn't know what it meant). Anyway i think this song is about how a person is so relieved that their relationship is over.

    Since you've been gone is simply about two people breaking up. The singer (narrator) feels like she fell for them to quickly and is glad that they broke up. She realises that he fell in love quickly and didnt really know who they were inside.They have now broken up and she is glad "i can breath for the first time, im so moving on". Basicly stating that he was a bad boyfriend and is nothing to her now.

    Okay dokay, so she is saying the when they first met, she fell for him quickly. She even fell for that stupid love song but that didnt last long. Soon she realized that she wasnt actually happy with him and that she never heard him say how he wanted to be with her. She was the one always saying how she pictured them together. And obviously no one likes one-way relationships. So she ditched him and now she can breath again and is a LOT happier. Although she THOUGHT she was sad about the breakup. Shes not in the end and is much happier once realizing that.

    Ok here it is, phrase by phrase:

    Are you there?/are you watching me?
    That would be saying 'you' are gone and 'I' hope you see this.

    As I lie here on this floor
    That would be "I'm depressed and I can't take it anymore, ever since you left"

    They say you feel what I do/They say you're here every moment
    That would be "They say your spirit still is with me". That means the the 'you' is dead or in a vegatable state

    But you might be the only one who sees me/the only one to save me
    That means you were the only good thing in my life until you died but you might still help me get outta this stinkin' depression.

    Why can't you just take me/I don't have much to go/before I fade completely
    That means I just wanna DIE because I don't have too much to lose anyways.So take me up to heaven so I can be with you.

    Can you feel how cold I am/Are you lonely up there by yourself?
    That means you've experienced the same as I do.

    so basically this is when she is at this incredibly low point in her life because she has lost a loved one.She doesn't want to go the same path as the person because that's what caused him/her to die. But she is.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    At first listen you probably think this song means that she has lost a friend or boyfriend, and she wants him/her back. But when you pay more attention to the lyrics you can tell that she has ended the relationship and is relieved("since you been gone, I can breathe for the first time, I'm so movin' on... yeah, yeah"). She obviously didn't want to admit she wanted to move on earlier but finally couldn't stand it anymore so ended the relationship. I am SO tired of songs that send the message,"ahh... I'm so dedicated to you... come back! I mean even though you treated me like crap". Which is why I like this song, because it shows that you should end a relationship you don't like, and you won't regret.
