When you forget me
When you don’t remember my name
Not even a memory
Somewhere in the back of your brain
I won’t be offended
‘Cause I always knew that the day
Would come when I’m not enough to make you stay
You tell me it’s not possible, no way that we could break
But nothing is illogical, believe me

Like falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out, burn like crashing cars
I’ll never get over you, never over you
‘Cause you are so beautiful, yeah

The world is turning
And time keeps on lingering on
The sun will be burning
Eventually you will be gone

I’ll always love you
Oh, believe it or not
Baby, that’s not enough to
Not enough to stop these…

Falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out, burn like crashing cars
I’ll never get over you, never over you
‘Cause you are so beautiful, yeah

When it’s all said and done
I’ll be just a speck in the galaxy
Floating far far away by gravity
You tell me it’s not possible
No way that we could break

Like falling stars
Like crashing cars
Like falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out just like crashing cars
I’ll never get over you, never over you
‘Cause you are so beautiful
You are so beautiful, yeah

    When you love someone but things just end, he's saying they were meant to have an ending. I absolutely love this song to death.

    It means we can never be sure of what tomorrow will bring.. We can never be certain of what the future may hold.. We can't predict outcomes and expect things to go our way..

    One day, you might forget me or the fact that i love you.. But i promise you that my love will never waiver.. No matter how far you go or how hard you hide, i will never forget you..

    He's being pessimistic and saying he already knew they weren't going to last.. Pretty much he'll always remember her but she won't remember him.
