Since U Been Gone Lyrics


Here's the thing
We started out friends
It was cool, but it was all pretend
Yeah, yeah
Since you been gone

You're dedicated, you took the time
Wasn't long till I called you mine
Yeah, yeah
Since you been gone

And all you'd ever hear me say
Is how I picture me with you
That's all you'd ever hear me say

But since you 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 been gone

How can I put it? You put me on
I even fell for that stupid love song
Yeah, yeah
Since you been gone

How come I've never heard you say
I just want to be with you?
Guess you never felt that way

But since you 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 been gone

You had your chance, you blew it
Out of sight, out of mind
Shut your mouth, I just can't take it
Again, and again, and again, and again

Since you been gone (since you been gone)
I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you (thanks to you)
Now I get, I get what I want

I can breathe for the first time
I'm so moving on
Yeah, yeah
Thanks to you (thanks to you), now I get (I get)
You should know (you should know)
That I get
I get what I want
Since you been gone
Since you been gone
Since you been gone

Since U Been Gone
  • Clarkson (from Entertainment Weekly, September 2, 2005): "Hazel Eyes is about the dipstick who completely screwed up and now is unhappy and you're happy. And then you're just shouting praises at the fact that he's miserable in Since U Been Gone."
  • The music video for this song is about a girl going into her ex-boyfriend's house and destroying everything. It's what everyone wants to do in that situation but isn't crazy enough to do it.
  • This won a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
  • With two Grammy Awards from this album, Clarkson is the most successful winner of American Idol to date.
  • This song almost didn't make it onto the Breakaway album; when Clarkson heard the first, acoustic version of the song, she didn't like it. It wasn't until it was given a rocking treatment that she warmed to the song.
  • This was written and produced by Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald and Max Martin. Gottwald recalled the genesis of the song to Billboard magazine: "That was a conscious move by Max and myself, because we were listening to alternative and indie music and talking about some song-I don't remember what it was. I said, 'Ah, I love this song,' and Max was like, 'If they would just write a damn pop chorus on it!' It was driving him nuts, because that indie song was sort of on six, going to seven, going to eight, the chorus comes . . . and it goes back down to five. It drove him crazy. And when he said that, it was like, light bulb. 'Why don't we do that, but put a big chorus on it?' It worked."
  • It was Sony Music chief creative officer Clive Davis' idea to give the song to Clarkson, but Martin and Gottwald, certain that they had written a rock hit, were initially reluctant. "They weren't prepared for the casting idea," Davis recalled to Billboard magazine. "Max was looking to move on from what he had done with Backstreet Boys, and I really spent time convincing them that an American Idol winner could bring all the feeling and passion that was required to the song."
  • Clive Davis claimed in his memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life, that Clarkson burst into 'hysterical sobbing' in his office when he demanded that this song be included on her album.

    "Not true at all," Clarkson responded. "His stories and songs are mixed up. I did want more guitars added to the original demo and Clive did not. Max, Luke and I still fought for the bigger sound and we prevailed and I couldn't be more proud of the life of that song. I resent him dampening that song in any way."
  • Ester Dean and Skylar Astin perform the song during the audition sequences of the 2012 musical comedy film, Pitch Perfect.
  • Dr. Luke and Max Martin originally wrote the song with Pink in mind, but she turned it down. They then reached out to Hilary Duff but she rejected the song because she couldn't reach its higher notes. Clive Davis then convinced the producers to give the song to Clarkson.
