lyrics

Now that you're gone,
You no longer drag from behind.
You're in the arms of a stranger.
So many thoughts fill up my mind.

Now I can live for myself.
It's easier to breathe
It's what I've been waiting for
I hoped you'd finally leave.

I hoped you'd finally leave

Without you in my life
Reason comes left and right
I feel like I'm free.
This is the best thing that ever happened to me. (Oohh)

Girl, it's hard to see you go this time.
But I know it's right.
It's not worth the fight that's your life.
You were always the anchor

I'm glad you don't want me.
You're better off at sea.
My last breath is mine.
You don't need me to know what's right.

You don't need me to know what's right!

You finally moved on.
You realized we had almost nothing.
(Almost nothing)
And what we had was a lie.
*With chant* We were sinking.

Without you in my life
Reason comes left and right
I feel like I'm free.
This is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

Girl, it's hard to see you go this time.
But I know it's right.
It's not worth the fight that's your life.

I was ready to give up
Afraid this would mess everything up

I was ready to give up
Afraid this would mess everything up

I'm still finding my place in this world
This world full of opportunity
It's hard to think that I'm finally free

But what path will I choose
I don't want to lose
faith in a healthy life.

Which way is right?
All that is left,
Is my desire to fight
For you

I've got to push it away!

I've got... To.. Push it away!

Without you in my life
Reason comes left and right
I feel like I'm free.
This is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

Without you in my life
Reason comes left and right
I feel like I'm free.
This is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

Now that you're out of the way
I won't miss my opportunity
My life in your shadow
Is fading away
(Is fading away)

I swore I wouldn't try
to keep you here with me.
Where is the future I wanted,
Where lives break free of your chains?

You've got your eyes set on the best
But it means nothing to me.
You better hope that you're ready
For the burden my life will be.
