We both know we ain’t kids no more

I can have another you by tomorrow
So don’t you ever for a second get to thinking
You’re irreplaceable

4. What Goes Around- Justin Timberlake

Is this the way it’s really going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should’ve known better when you came around
That you were gonna make me cry

That’s okay baby ’cause in time you will find…
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around

There’s no feeling left
If you think I’m coming back
Don’t hold your breath

Well,I’ve got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little boyfriend

I see you driving ’round town
With the girl I love and I’m like,
Forget you!

7. Since you’ve been gone- Kelly Clarkson

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

8. Somebody that I used to know- Gotye



Significant lyrics :

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

9. Your time is gonna come – Led Zeppelin



Significant Lyrics:

Lyin’, cheatin’, hurtin, that’s all you seem to do.
Messin’ around with every guy in town,
Puttin’ me down for thinkin’ of someone new.
Always the same, playin’ your game,
Drive me insane, trouble is gonna come to you,
One of these days and it won’t be long,
You’ll look for me but baby, I’ll be gone.
This is all I gotta say to you woman:
Your Time Is Gonna Come

10. Don’t cry – Guns n Roses

And please remember
how I felt inside now honey
You gotta make it your own way
But you’ll be alright now sugar
You’ll feel better tomorrow
Come the morning light now baby

11. Goodbye to you – Michelle Branch



Significant Lyrics:

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
I want you
But I’m not giving in this time

12. Believe – Cher



Significant Lyrics:

What am I supposed to do
Sit around and wait for you
And I can’t do that
There’s no turning back
I need time to move on
I need love to feel strong
‘Cause I’ve had time to think it through
And maybe I’m too good for you

13. Over You – Daughtry


Significant Lyrics:

I’m finally getting better.
And now I’m picking up the pieces.
I’m spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through,
I got over you.
