She's Gonna Make It Lyrics - Garth Brooks
Review The Song (10)
He followed her to work this morning
He'd never seen that dress before
And she seemed to sail
Right through those dark clouds formin'
That he knows he's headed for
After seven years of marriage he wanted out
After seven months of freedom
It's clear that there's no doubt
She's gonna make it
And he never will
He's at the foot of that mountain
She's over that hill
He's sinkin' at sea
And her sails are filled
She's gonna make it
And he never will
You know it's not like she's forgot about it
She's just dealin' with the pain
And the fact that she's survived so well without him You know it's drivin' him insane
And the crazy thing about it,
Is she'd take him back
But the fool in him that walked out
Is the fool that just won't ask

Ive recently left my husband after 13 years. Hes cheated on me before and I forgave him,but someone busted him out this time and he came clean about a 3 1/2 year affair with a woman. He kept me holding on to hope that we would get back together.I read sometext he wrote to her that just crushed me. I moved in with my sister and he moved in with her. I have to see him everyday cause we worktogether. He walks around happy n smiling while im dying. After 13 years he can throw everything away n start a new life while I try to pick up the pieces of my broken heart.
Love this song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/12/13
I am 18 and currently 8 months pregnant by the guy I've been with for quite awhile. Me and him were having problems and he was messing around and then one day I was listening to Pandora and this song came on. It made me realize I could make it without him. Well we are back together now but if anything ever happens and we do end things for good I will just listen to this song to remind me I'm gonna make it and he never will. Great song.

Im 17 and im in a relationship with this guy, I love him but i have my doubts. I know he still has pain from his ex, and i just wish he would focus on the now. Not the past.. don't know what to do.

It's been since late march that my husband told me it was over. For the past year he lived in a different city , not coming home on days off because of " money" or " work". I questioned him all the time if there was anyone else, he lied and said "no". Finally the truth came out, little by little, started off with he wasn't in love with me, then that My attitude lead him to another females bed. We tried to work things out, he come in to town an tells me we need to talk. Here I am thinking "ok he's going to tell me he is done trying." Nope! Another female is pregnant, the pain I felt, I've been with this man for eleven years, we have a ten year old girl, I've begged him for another child since our daughter was two. He always said "no". The funny thing is he still doesn't want another kid, and says if he did it would be with me. I love this man, and even through this I'd take him back! Call me stupid call me crazy. Listening to this song alot lately has made me realize I'll be ok without him. The lines that hit home the most are "he'd never seen that dress before" after seven years of marriage he wanted out, after seven months of freedom it's clear that there's no doubt" , and " and the crazy thing about it is she'd take him back, but the fool in him that walked out is the fool who just won't ask" and "she's gonna make it and he never will". I've bought new clothes, I've started to wear makeup again, I've started to lose weight and hit the gym. I didn't walk out, he did, I didn't choose this he did. I love him and would take him back, but i don't know how long my heart is willing to wait. I'm at peace with whatever the outcome will be, I know this because I'm slowly moving on and am not mad at anything or anyone. I'm gonna make it :)
A Different View | Reviewer: Courtney | 2/23/09
I love this song but not because of a relationship gone bad but because of the empowerment I feel from the four simple words of She's Gonna Make It. See, I live in Georgia and am wanting to move to Montana to attend school but a lot of people in my family don't believe I can make it. They don't think I'm strong enough to move all by myself and for awhile there, I actually let myself believe that. But then I rediscovered this song on my Garth Brooks CD and it just clicked for me "I'm gonna make it". I understand that's not what the song is about but I think the main thought of the song is overcoming a hardship and that's what I'm doing right now. Everytime I feel a little bit of negativity, I listen to this song and my strength and determination is renewed. I think this is a good song for any woman going through a hard time.

Boy..- I sure do feel for the lady who wrote the comment 2/20/08.. I hope you're doing much better and over that terrible part of your past. No one deserves to be put through those things, and whether or not your ex will realize that or not, you already have been a true hero and will always be. The strong are really those who can forgive as they really do love the other person unconditionally, but my cheers to you that you stood up and showed your true worth! :)...That you're more than worth to have someone like you, too. :) ..Good song:). I'm glad you made it and good for you!

I am newly ending my 16 year marriage. My husband has had many flings throughout the years, which I have chosen to forgive; but I recently found out of an almost 2 year affair he had going with a woman he met at work. I found out about this affair, actually, right when it began almost 2 years ago. I spoke to the woman, she told me they were just friends and it was over, she would not be in contact with him anymore. He works out of state 5 days a week, in the town she lives in, and is home with me and our children on the weekends. I just found out he had a second cell phone, and that is how they kept in contact for this long without me finding out. It has been a very nauseating past few days since I found the phone. I called her up, and even found her husband's phone number and called him to let him know of the affair. Ironically, I am now being blamed by my husband and his other woman, for causing problems in her marriage. Well, he has moved out, I have been so sick since it all has happened, crying, staying in bed, wanting him back. But today, my best friend emailed me and told me to listen to this song, as it pulled her through her divorce, and I have listened to it over and over. Along with these words and the support of my friends and my family, I can finally see some light. Even though it is still all so raw and painful, I know I'm going to come out of this eventually, the hero. I will never take him back...even if he begs.
I hope this is true. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/4/07
I fell in love with the wrong guy and we just broke. It's my first time falling in love so I really hope that this is true. He's the one who told me to listen to it. I want to sleep for months and wake up when I'm healed. But I guess it doesn't happen like that, does it?
This song is amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/13/07
I spent 4 1/2 years with my boyfriend when all of a sudden he broke up with me, saying he wasn't in love with me anymore. He treated me badly the last six months we were together, and now I'm finally starting to move on with my life and be happy again. This song is beautiful, it makes me think of our relationship and how I feel now. He says he wants me back, but I am moving on and happy without him now. I'm 20 years old, I realized that I'm too young to let something like this ruin my life, I have many years ahead of me and I'm going to make it.
