It starts with a regret expressed with the lines

I had it all

But I let it slip away

As she was in the relationship she could not see properly the way she was acting and now that her lover is gone she can tell she treated him wrong. The chorus is about the fact that after any break up, the healing process is a long way and it takes time

Love takes time

To heal when you're hurting so much

Also the chorus is about the pain everyone feels after a break up, when the loved one is no longer around and by that she has to face that pain by herself

I can't escape the pain


'Cause love takes time

I don't want to be here

I don't wanna be here alone

Losing my mind

From this hollow in my heart

Suddenly I'm so incomplete

She is praying for the Lord as she feels lonely and he begs him to stop the tears

Tell me how to stop the rain

Tears are falling down endlessly
