The song can be considered a confession of the singer.
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
The last line from the chorus is expressing her desire she feels for her lover to be here, and by that she would not face this hard situation all by herself, because he is the only one who can make the pain fade.
The fact that her lover is no longer by her side is lightly expressed in the second verse with the lines
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
