Oh a oh oh oh a oh oh
In pain you speak
All that you need
When you’d decide
When all is said and done
You’d laugh it off and run

In time you’ll see
What you kept from me
I should have known
We could have made it through
But that’s just ego you

Time will show and time will tell
What you need to make it well
Time will show I know
If I let you go

Oh a oh oh oh a oh oh
Through all you life
All filled with strife
All you desire
Has been torn up in two
Because of ego you

Time will show and time will tell
What you need to make it well
Time will show I know
If I let you go oo oo oo
Go oo oo oo

Time will show and time will tell
What you need to make it well
Time will show I know
If I let you go

    Mirror, matter of self-discovery, state of finding what is the essence of being here in the world and discover my purpose

    I think this song is about someone who went through something bad, and did not tell the other person. they they ended up breaking up, and if the other person had just told the other what they felt, or been honest, they could've stayed together. but the other person just couldn't do it because their ego was too big. now their life stinks because they dont know how to fix their problem, but only with time will it be fixed.

    or this song is about someone going through a personal problem, and they just cant to be able to fix it by themselves, and the problem is ripping them up, but they just cant seem to tell anyone because it would hurt their ego.
