So I’ve always been a huge fan of great lyrics.  Notice I said great lyrics and not music or singers, although who can resist the likes of Amy Winehouse, Mariah Carey, Whitney, and yeah even some of Beyonce’s body of work.  My taste in singers has always leaned more towards feminine vocals.            There is just something about the female’s ability to harmonize that mesmerizes me.

Anyhow, I digress.  In this new series of posts I’m going to share some of the lyrics and videos (when available) of the songs that have moved me with their words.  The first is Kelly Clarkson’s latest single: Already Gone. Since I first heard this song it has just been stuck in my head…so here’s to hoping this post will cure that!

Credited to Clarkson, Kelly Brianne, Tedder and Ryan, this song speaks to the universal emotion of love gone wrong.  Great lyrics include I want you to know that it doesn’t matter/Where we take this road someone’s gotta go/ And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better/But I want you to move on so I’m already gone. Are you kidding me?  If you’re going through a tough breakup or reminiscing about a lost love, this is the perfect song for you.  Even better than that, the words are just so real and raw.

Here are the full lyrics and video. Enjoy!

Already Gone lyrics
Songwriters: Clarkson, Kelly Brianne; Tedder, Ryan;

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’ve worked out right
We were never meant for do or die

I didn’t want us to burn out
I didn’t come here to hold you, now I can’t stop

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I’m already gone

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you’ll find another
That doesn’t always make you want to cry

Started with a perfect kiss then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn’t keep this love alive
You know that I love you so, I love you enough to let you go

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I’m already gone

I’m already gone, already gone
You can’t make it feel right when you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone, already gone
There’s no moving on so I’m already gone

Already gone, already gone, already gone
Already gone, already gone, already gone, yeah

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories they’re haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I’m already gone

I’m already gone, already gone
You can’t make it feel right when you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone, already gone
There’s no moving on so I’m already gone
