Sheryl Crow – When Love Is Over lyrics

I know I ask for nothing
And that's what I got from you tonight
I guess I thought you'd changed
Leaving becomes too easy
Easy by morning light
I still cannot explain

Is it enough to ask and not receive
Just one more kiss before you turn and leave
When love is over
Over it should be
But something still burns in me

A hundred solid reasons
The answers come in waves
But I'm all for calmer seas
You're only lost in the shuffle
But in your usual way
It's you who always comes to me

I've burned up pages
Hidden yesterdays
Here's one more glance before I turn away
When love is over
Over it should stay
But something won't go away

Hardly a moment passes
Hardly a single day goes by
I'm not remembering
Just to surrender slowly
Into a stranger's arms
But you stand watching in the wings

These must be days we've seen through tear-filled eyes
It all makes painful sense when I realize
When love is over
Something has to die
Cause you can say goodbye
