When my ex said he would finally divorce me.
You don’t understand, I never felt so free.
We were separated for years
Got rid of the pain and tears.
Got our own lives and relationships.
But its what we used to have that he holds onto
No matter what we individually do
I couldn’t truly fall in love cuz he wouldn’t let me go
But now when I get a special man in my life he will know
that he has me completely
I can start off fresh and be very refreshed
at the fact that I can think without someone else still controlling my life
I was still a wife
to a man who was with someone else that he adores
What were we still married for
As I begged to move on and he has the best of both worlds.
A legal wife and a loyal girl
It was crazy.
I told him all the time start anew
You can fall in love again too.
Don’t come back where there’s hurt and pain
Go for something where you can build and be happy again
Its was about time
You live your life and I live mine
Don’t worry about me, I’ll be just fine.
He finally saw what I was trying to say
All these years that led to that day
It was like a weight had been lifted
In these words neatly gifted.
He said he would finally divorce me
I never felt so free
