She whispers in your ear
I love you
You don't want to hear but you do
You're forced to say it back
You don't want to lead her down that path
You want to turn away
Instead you turn to her and say
I love you too
She's holding on to hope
And you can feel it
But you lost that long ago
And can't retrieve it
You can see it in her eyes
It's unrequited and deprived
Afraid of all the tears that's your biggest fear

Love is knowing when to stop
Love is moving on
Love is never turning back even when you hear her crying
Love is now
Now
Love is now

Making steps to leave but slowly
You find yourself deceived
By being lonely
It only takes a word and there you are consoling her
Feels right to hold her close
And so your story goes...

Love is knowing when to stop
Love is moving on
Love is never turning back even when you hear her crying
Love is now
Now
Love is now
NOW

Now is later than the moment when you should have walked away
It's harder every minute when you're searching for the strength to say
THE STRENGTH TO SAY

Love is knowing when to stop
Love is moving on
Love is never turning back even when you hear her crying
Love is now
Now
Love is now, now (x3)

She whispers in your ear
I LOVE YOU

    This song is saying that true love means knowing when to walk away. The man in this song loves the woman, just not in the same way she loves him. He doesn't want to hurt her and see her cry and walking away is hard. But he doesn't feel the same way she does and it's not fair to either of them to keep leading her on. One must find the strength to tell the truth and let go, even if it means risking the heartbreak of another.

    This song is saying if you really love someone, you'll be honest with them about how you feel. Many relationships in which one's love is unrequited don't end due to the fact that tears will be shed. The man in this song loves the woman, just not in the way she loves him. He doesn't want to hurt her, but needs to realize that if he really cares for her, he has to let go, even if it means breaking her heart. It's not right or fair to oneself or the other person to stay in a relationship if you don't feel the same way they do. That's what love is: honesty.
