  • Lyrics
  • Remember all the things we wanted
    Now all our memories, they're haunted
    We were always meant to say goodbye
    Even without fists held high, yeah
    Never would have worked out right, yeah
    We were never meant for do or die

    I didn't want us to burn out
    I didn't come here to hurt 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 wanna 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
    I'm 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

    Oh, oh

    Already gone
    Already gone
    Already gone

    Yeah

    Remember all these 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
    I'm already gone
    You can't make it feel right
    When you know that its wrong
    I'm already gone
    Already gone
    There's no moving on
    So I'm already goneWriter/s: KELLY BRIANNE CLARKSON, RYAN B TEDDER

  • Arslan from Islamabad, PakistanAlready Gone is one of favorite songs. I just listed to 'Halo' and I agree with Ryan Tedder, that 'Halo' and 'Already Gone' are totally different songs. And in my opinion, "Halo' is nowhere near as good as 'Already Gone'.
  • Emily from Ocean Springs, MsThe first time I heard this, I thought it was "Halo." Sorry Kelly :(.
    I thought it was funny that in Kelly's other song "Gone" the final line of the chorus is "I'm already gone," which is the same in this song.
  • Misshell from Heildeburge, Germanythis song reminds me of my x-boyfriend
    it made me cry the first time i heard it.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis song is really mellow but powerful thanks to Kelly's gorgeous pipes.
