It's over when it's over
Aint it baby, Aint it
Rips ya like a dagger,
Can it baby, Can it
Wish we could do it over
Damn it baby, Damn it
We had it in the air, we just couldnt land it

It's the first snap, of the last straw,
Where regrets outlast the alcohol
It's a cold sweat, in an empty bed,
And dreams are like a knife,
When you're hangin by a thread
And no, maybe we can make it if we just play,
The right cards.

Now it's over when it's over
Aint it baby, Aint it
Rips ya like a dagger,
Can it baby, Can it
Wish we could do it over
Damn it baby, Damn it
We had it in the air, but just couldnt land it

It's a white flag,
It's a stop sign,
It's the last long drag, on a marlboro light
It's a long night, beatin up the past
Now when the first lie, is gonna hit you back
This aint no gone for good drill,
Or no goodbye false alarm

It's over
It's over,
Yeah it's ovver.

There aint no better way,
We could make it work
It's a blank page,
When you're outta words.
Yeah it's a flat line,
It's a heart attack
Yeah it's too far gone, to be shocked back
It's a one way, with nowhere to turn
It's a no breaks, baby, crash and burn
Aint no map, gonna ever bring us back
From where we are.

It's just over when it's over
Aint it baby, Aint it
Rip ya like a dagger,
Can it baby, Can it
Wish we could do it over
Damn it baby, Damn it
We had it in the air, and just couldnt land it.

    That "moment" in time when you realize everything you have fought to maintain is over. Knowing with your very next breath your life is going to take a different path without "that" person by your side. It says i am moving the hell on!!!
