"Time For Me To Fly" as written by and K. Cronin....
I've been around for you
Been up and down for you
But I just can't get any relief
I've swallowed my pride for you
I've lived and lied for you
But you still make me feel like a thief

You got me stealing your love away
'Cause you never give it
Peeling the years away
And we can't relive it
Oh, I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

You said we'd work it out
You said that you had no doubt
That deep down we were really in love
Oh, but I'm tired of holding on
To a feeling I know is gone
I do believe that I've had enough

I've had enough of the falseness
Of a worn-out relation
Enough of the jealousy
And the intoleration
Oh, I make you laugh
And you make me cry
I believe it's time for me to fly

Time for me to fly
Oh, I've got to set myself free
(Time for me to fly)
And that's just how it's got to be
I know it hurts to say goodbye
But it's time for me to fly

Oh, don't you know it's time for me to fly
Oh, I've got to set myself free
(Time for me to fly)
Oh, babe, that's just how it's got to be
I know it hurts to say goodbye
But it's time for me to fly
It's time for me to fly
It's time for me to fly
(It's time for me to fly)
It's time for me to fly
(It's time for me to fly)
It's time for me to fly
(It's time for me to fly)
It's time for me to fly

    General Commenthe loves her more than she loves him. she swears that they're in love, but he knows its not there nad that they won't work it out. he treats her right ('i make you laugh') and she walks all over him ('and you make me cry') so he leaves her.

    General CommentA painful break-up.

    But a very prettily-written one.

    General CommentStory of my life. Period

    The meaning is:
    I love you to much
    You dont love me enough
    Good bye. (and sometimes screw you)

    Thats pretty much the point of the song

    General CommentIt's about his forbearance of guilt that he gave up everything for to steal her love. But she could not could not see beyond her selfishness and intolerance to be with him.

    "I've had enough of the falseness
    Of a worn out relation
    Enough of the jealousy
    And the intoleration"

    her demands are overbearing and he has decided to move on.

    Being a Butterflyer this song has gotten me thru a lot of work outs.

    It's Time for Me to Fly.

    My InterpretationHe had a great time being with her to start with, but now he's losing the connection with her. He's tired of all the pain he has to go through(the line I make you laugh, and you make me cry..clearly saying it's too hard for him). He has no choice but says, "it's time for me to fly".
