What really makes this song sad is that the audio matches the message. The horns and that bell rhodes synth along with the low church organ. It's almost like church music. And the melody goes with the feelings conveyed.
My favorite line:
"The saddest part of a broken heart, isn't the ending so much as the start."
Whenever I think about splitting with a girl, I always think about the first moment I looked in her eyes and saw myself in her future.
My second favorite line:
"It won't take long to fall in love now I know what I don't want."
