  • Ooh, ooh

    It's been the longest winter without you
    I didn't know where to turn to (ooh, ooh-oh)
    See somehow I can't forget you
    After all that we've been through (ooh, ooh-oh)

    Going, coming
    Thought I heard a knock (whose there? no one)
    Thinking that (I deserve it)
    And now I realize that I really didn't know (oh-ooh)

    If you didn't notice
    You mean everything (quickly, I'm learning)
    To love again (all I know is)
    I'ma be okay (oh ooh-oh)

    Thought I couldn't live without you
    It's gonna hurt when it heals too
    Oh yeah (it'll all get better in time)
    Even though I really love you
    I'm gonna smile 'cause I deserve too
    Ooh-ooh (it'll all get better in time)

    How could I turn on the TV? (no, ooh-oh)
    Without somethin' that'll remind me (ooh, ooh-oh)
    Was it all that easy? (ooh, ooh-oh)
    To just put aside your feelings (ooh, ooh-oh)
    If I'm dreamin'
    Don't want to let it (hurt my feelings)
    But that's the past (I believe it)
    And I know that, time will heal it (ooh, ooh-oh)

    If you didn't notice
    Well you mean everything (quickly I'm learning)
    Ooh, to love again (all I know is)
    I'ma be okay (ooh, ooh-oh)

    Thought I couldn't live without you
    It's gonna hurt when it heals, too
    Oh yeah (it'll all get better in time)
    Even though I really love you
    I'm gonna smile 'cause I deserve too
    Oh (it'll all get better in time)

    Since there's no more you and me (no more you and me)
    It's time I let you go so I can be free (ooh, ooh-oh)
    And live my life how it should be (no no no, no no no)
    No matter how hard it is, I'll be fine without you
    Yes I will

    Thought I couldn't live without you
    It's gonna hurt when it heals, too
    Oh, ooh-oh (it'll all get better in time)
    Even though I really love you
    I'm gonna smile 'cause I deserve too (yes I do)
    (It'll all get better in time)

    Thought I couldn't live without you
    It's gonna hurt when it heals, too
    Yes (it'll all get better in time)
    Even though I really love you (ooh, ooh, ooh)
    I'm gonna smile 'cause I deserve too
    Oh (it'll all get better in time) Writer/s: Andrea Martin, Jonathan Rotem
