Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down)
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

(So you're sad)
About the moment you lost your love (Damn)
You couldn't see her leaving
(You were gassed)
And that's sucks don't it
'Cause God yanked the rug
And holding your heart will not help you breathe

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down)
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

It all comes crashing down
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in

(So you're sad)
And you should own it and you fucked up (Damn)
You thought that you were the team
(You were gassed)
And now your opponent, he wears your gloves (Damn)
A nightmare just ate up your dreams

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down)
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

It all comes crashing down
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in

(So you're sad)
Could have had so much done You blew it off (Damn)
Your chance is passing you by
(You were gassed)
Time waits for no one
And it cost for a lost
A cosmic joke
Should you laugh or cry

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down)
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

It all comes crashing down
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
(Repeats until end)

    The means whatever your experience is with love. What you bring to the song in your heart is how you'll feel it. For me, I was engaged and ready to give a woman my heart for every. That was a big deal for me. But she got scared and went back to her abusive ex. Sooner or later. .means not to take anything for granted because anything can change when you least expect it.
    That's the meaning I bring to the song.

    At this very moment I Think The song was written for me. My Ex Man stopped paying attention and completly Mentally Left The Relationship. One day He Came Home to an Empty House and I was Gone For Good. I played This Song as I drive away Imagining It playing in his head when he walked in the door. "It's over! Breathe In" lmao.

    Sooner or Later means to me that you lost your love one for good, because you didn't pay attention to ya'll realationship so it falls down.
