I've put it all behind me, nothing left to do or doubt
Some may say
But every silver lining always seems to have a cloud
That comes my way
Anticipated pleasure or unexpected pain
No choice I feel
Love is hard to measure, hidden in the rain
That's why you'll find me

Here all alone and still wondering why
Waitin inside for the cold to get colder
And here where it's clear that I've wasted my time
Hopin to fly cause it's almost over now

People come together, people go their own way
Love conquers few
And I'll do whatever I'll say what I need to say
Just not for you

How many days should I smile with a frown?
'Cause you're not around with the sun on your shoulders
And how many nights must I wake up alone
And know in my soul that it's almost over now?

Love is like a paper airplane
Flyin in the folded dent
Ridin high dippin low
But innocence is fair again
I'm hopin I can hold it in
Our love will die I know

    Your relationship is over and as much as you tried to make it work, you are now accepting that it will never regain what it once had. Though love has it's ups and downs, the singer is doubtful about a new relationship and feels that all are doomed to failure.
