I've practiced this for hours, gone round and round
And now I think that I've got it all down
And as I say it louder, I love how it sounds
'Cause I'm not taking the easy way out
Not wrapping this in ribbons
Shouldn't have to give a reason why

It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow
I can't believe that I stayed till today
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise

It came out like a river, once I let it out
When I thought that I wouldn't know how
Held onto it forever, just pushing it down
Felt so good to let go of it now
Not wrapping this in ribbons
Shouldn't have to give a reason why

It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow
I can't believe that I stayed till today
There's nothing here in this heart left to borrow
There's nothing here in this soul left to say

Don't be surprised when we hate this tomorrow
God knows we tried to find an easier way
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise

Our favorite place we used to go
The warm embrace that no one knows
The loving look that's left your eyes
That's why this comes as no, as no surprise

If I could see the future and how this plays out
I bet it's better than where we are now
But after going through this, it's easier to see the reason why

It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow
I can't believe that I stayed till today
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise

A kiss goodnight, it comes with me
Both wrong and right, our memories
The whispering before we sleep
Just one more thing that you can keep

Our favorite place we used to go
The warm embrace that no one knows
The loving look that's left your eyes
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise

    My InterpretationThis song is obviously about a dying relationship. The singer is ready to call it quits and has rehearsed his last words many times. He's ready to get out of the relationship, because its doing nothing but hurting him. It sounds like the girl does not love him as she once did, and he can't take it anymore. Hes telling her that its no surprise the relationship is ending, they both knew it was coming.

    General Commenti found this song acouple weeks after my ex broke up with me. and even though he broke up with me i still can relate to all of it. when he says "I've practiced this for hours, gone round and round And now I think that I've got it all down And as I say it louder, I love how it sounds." this means that either he is breaking up with her. or telling ones self that it is over and that u dont need them. because i can say i have done that. so once again i think sang could go both ways. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SONG!!!!
