Some people live their dreams
Some people close their eyes
Some people's destiny
Passes by

There are no guarantees
There are no alibis
That's how our love must be
Don't ask why

Bridge:
It takes some time
God knows how long
I know that I can forget you

As soon as my heart stops breakin'
Anticipating
As soon as forever is through
I'll be over you

Remembering times gone by
Promises we once made
What are the reasons why
Nothing stays the same

Bridge:
There were the nights holding you close
Someday I'll try to forget them
Someday I'll be over you

    I've known this song the first time my heart got broke by this woman I loved. I was so sad and crying, drinking while listening to this song. It made me feel better bit by bit. Now, whenever I listen to this song I would laugh so hard remembering the days I ever did such funny things I did during the time my heart was in pain.

    Some people tends to stick to a memory, a good memory that they kept and those memories are usually associated to the person they’ re with (specifically, their boyfriend or girlfriend). And when breakup comes, their separation seems to detach those memories along with that somebody. Then you’ ll long for those memories (even though they’ re lost but it wont happen again) and because those memories are associated with the person, we can assume that they long for the person too. (some may be against to this, but this is the most common thing that happens).

    If you really love somebody, you will set him free. Maybe he will stay by you forever, maybe not. If not, you will fill pain, but your heart remains right and free. You will need to keep your heart free, because probably next day you meet person, who needs your heart and who will love you as you are.
