Lyrics
I didn't want you to go
I didn't want you to know
I was afraid to believe
the sweetest thing you'd ever do for me was leave

And all those things you used to say
I never wanna be that way
You'd wipe the smile off my face
my happiness was erased

Guess love can be such an addiction
a destructive contradiction
well, well, I have felt it's affliction
you deemed my light your competition

But since you've been gone I found simplicity and sweetness
I think that I like me now
since you have been gone
I found a place where I belong
I think I'm gettin' strong now
yeah, since you have been gone.

I gave myself permission
to be happier today than you ever would have approved of
'cause you can't leave me no
not if your already gone (hey, hey)

So there's no need, no need, no need
to play that same sad song
'cause it's a perfect life
yes, it's a perfect life indeed

I got no reason to be less than all that I am
to make you comfortable
and that became comfortable
for far, far too long

But since you've been gone I found simplicity and sweetness
I think that I like me now
since you have been gone
I found a place where I belong
I think I'm gettin' strong now
yeah, since you have been gone.

Yeah, love can be such an addiction
a destructive contradiction
well, well, I have felt it's affliction
you deemed my light your competition

But since you've been gone I found simplicity and sweetness
I think that I like me now
since you have been gone
I found a place where I belong
I think I'm gettin' strong now
yeah, since you have been gone.

I didn't want you to go
I didn't want you to know
I was afraid to believe
the sweetest thing you'd ever do for me was leave.
