Sometimes you find out what you wanted
Isn't really what you need
And the dream in all it's promise
Was never meant to be
All your hopes and desperation
Won't make it like it was
And you believe the pain will never end
Believe me in time it does

CHORUS
You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone
When your golden road has reached the end
You find the strength to start again you know
There's a time for love and a time for letting go

When you're standin' tall tomorrow
Looking back at yesterday
Through the memory of your sorrow
How the dawn was so far away
You'll be far beyond the shadow
Where hearts can learn to shine
And you'll realize the endless night
Was only a moment in time

(CHORUS REPEAT)

The night is long the night is cold
With nothing to believe in
Just hold on, 'cause life goes on
Your new day is waiting, let go and let it begin

(CHORUS REPEAT)
