Can you ask me anything?
I can't serve you everything.
You don't know, it'sno surprise,
That I can see right through those lies.

Just like a song with no storyline,
This conversation's getting dry,
'Cause when you love someone,
You gotta set 'em free,
Gotta take your time and let 'em be what they wanna be.
When you love someone,
You gotta set 'em free,
You gotta take your time and you just might find that it wasn't meant to be.

I tried to walk away from the past,
I tried to walk away from everything.
It all depends on how you ask,
Would I be a fool to condsider such a thing?

Just like a song with no storyline,
This conversation's getting dry,
'Cause when you love someone,
You gotta set 'em free,
Gotta take your time and let 'em be what they wanna be.
When you love someone,
You gotta set 'em free,
You gotta take your time and you just might find that it wasn't meant to be, yeah.

When it's over and it's all said and done,
You'll be the one, just waiting for me.
I fought this war, and I know how to win,
To get what I want, I'll let you go.

Just like a song with no storyline,
This conversation's getting dry,
'Cause when you love someone,
You gotta set 'em free,
Gotta take your time and let 'em be what they wanna be.
When you love someone,
You gotta set 'em free,
You gotta take your time and you just might find that it wasn't meant to be, yeah.

You gotta take your time, and you just might find that it wasn't meant to be, yeah.

    General Commenthe's tired of going through the same old crap with his girl and after trying to make her understand that he needed the time to himself to think she just wouldn't give him a chance and it suffocated him. Through that he found out more things bad instead of it getting better (because it all comes out in the wash anyway) and he realized that it really wasn't meant to be anyway. He tried to give up the hurt ("Walk away from the past") and in turn tried to just walk away from it all ("i tired to walk away from everything") she was feeding him lies ("it all depends on how you ask") not being totally honest with him and he caught on to her ("would i be a fool to consider such a thing?") and realized he'd be a fool to do it all over again.. now it's just run its course ("this conversation's getting dry") and now he realizes what he really has to do and that's walk away from it all ("i fought this war, and i know how to win, to get what i want, i'll let you go") and inevitably find what's right for him
