a time to tell that she is stuck
is far too long away
impatience her only goal
it always made her stray
ooooooooohh...

she won’t let this go on
he won’t let this beat him
he knows how to love her
he's not what she wants
this does not define her
this does all but comfort
she can't really love him
he won't let her go

it was ok for him to love her
it was ok for him to cry

she would try and comfort
he did not decline
it was missing something
they could not go on
if you stopped and watched him
you could see his crime
it was not affection
simply a lack of time

it was ok for him to love her
it was ok for her to cry
he didn’t think that she could make it
without him by her side

a time to tell that she is stuck
is far to on her way
impatience her only goal
it always made her stray
a time to tell that she is stuck
is far to on her way
impatience her only goal
it always made her stray

it was ok for him to love her
it was ok for her to mind
he didn’t think that she could make it
without him by her side

it was ok for him to love her
it was ok for him to cry
they didn’t think that she could make it
without him by her side

    General Commentto me, every time i have listened to this song, it seems that it is about a couple that love each other deeply, but there are circumstances that are pushing them apart. everyone seems to think that the girl can't make it without him, and maybe she wants out, even though she loves him.

    General Commentthis song to me means that for once a girl isn't chasing the guy, the guy is after her, but its just not what she wants. And she will prove that she doesn't need him, and can make it. And its his turn to cry.

    General Commentto me, this songs is about a guy that thinks there is more to a relationship than there really is. it seems like she cared about him but there was something holding her back so much that she knew there would never been anything more than a friendship.

    General Commentshe won’t let this go on
    he won’t let this beat him
    he knows how to love her
    he’s not what she wants
    *then stars, not to find her*
    *then stars, all but comfort*
    *she can’t be without him*
    he won’t let her go

    she would try and comfort
    he did not decline
    *it was missing something*
    they could not go on
    if you stopped and watched him
    you could see his crime
    it was not affection
    simply a lack of time

    General Commentactually no. his/her lyrics are correct. "then stars" doesn't make any sense at all anyway. and if you really love the song, you'd know the lyrics.

    General Commentit was ok for him to love her
    it was ok for him to cry

    Isn't that
    "It was a *pain* for him to love her
    It was a *pain* for her to cry"?
