Sometimes you find out what you wanted
Isn't really what you need
And the dream in all its promise
Was never meant to be

All your hopes and desperation
Won't make it like it was
And you believe the pain will never end
Believe me in time it does

You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone

When your golden road has reached the end
You find a way to start again
You know
There's a time for love and a time for letting go

When you're standin' tall tomorrow
Looking back at yesterday
Through the memory of your sorrow
How the dawn was so far away

You'll be far beyond the shadows
Where hearts can learn to shine
And you'll realize the endless night
Was only a moment in time

You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone

When your golden road has reached the end
You find a way to start again
You know
There's a time for love and a time for letting go

The night is long, the night is cold
With nothing to believe in
Just hold on, 'cause life goes on
Your new day is waiting, let go and let it begin

You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone

When your golden road has reached the end
You find a way to start again
You know
There's a time for love and a time for letting go

There's a time for love
There's a time for letting go

You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
Carry on
