"When It's Over" as written by David Martin Kahne, Matthew Murphy Karges, Mark S. Mcgrath, Rodney Charles Sheppard, Craig Anthony Bullock and Charles Stanton Frazier....
When it's over
That's the time I fall in love again
And when it's over
That's the time you're in my heart again
And when you go go go go
I know, it never ends, never ends

All the things that I used to say
All the words that got in the way
All the things that I used to know
Have gone out the window
All the things that she used to bring
All the songs she used to sing
All the favorite TV shows
Have gone out the window

I'm missing you
I never knew how much she'd loved me
I'm missing you
I never knew how much you meant to me
I need you and when you go go go go
I know, it never ends, never ends

All the things that I used to say
All the words that got in the way
All the things that I used to know
Have gone out the window
All the things that she used to bring
All the songs she used to sing
All the favorite TV shows
Have gone out the window

I'm missing you
You never say your
I'm missing you
You feel the say in just back to me
I need you and when you go go go go
I know, it never ends, never ends

When it's over
Can I still come over
When it's over
Is it really over

When it's over
That's the time I fall in love again

All the things that I used to say
All the words that got in the way
All the things that I used to know
Have gone out the window
All the things that she used to bring
All the songs she used to sing
All the favorite TV shows
Have gone out the window

All the things that I used to say
All the words that got in the way
All the things that I used to know
Have gone out the window
All the things that she used to bring
All the songs she used to sing
All the favorite TV shows
Have gone out the window

All the things that I used to say
All the words that got in the way
All the things that I used to know
Have gone out the window
All the things that she used to bring
All the songs she used to sing... and fading

    General CommentYeah, this song is quite upbeated but it's still sad to me. The guy I fell for the first time later became my best friend, and this song reflects the fear I had to lose him in any way, because I knew I would miss everything about him (not just the loving side)...It really touched my back then in 2001 and still does today, cause we never parted completely and in my mind and my heart I never closed that door, being too afraid to say goodbye forever, but I have to, cause it's the only way I ever "fall in love again", after it's definitely "over". And I used to love visiting him, and so the line "can I still come over?", can you still be there for me if I need you?...
    All the things that you used to do together, the experiences and moments are still there but won't be repeated with that special person or anyone, you know it just won't happen again. It's a sad confusing situation, specially when you have developed such strong bonds and they became already someone too special to wipe off completely.

    General Commentahh...what a great song this is. this song is about how confusing breakups can be. unlike other breakup songs, though, it's not really angry or sad. cool.

    General Commentthis guy can't appreciate what he has till he doesnt have it. after they break up, he forgets all the reasons he left her, and just wants her back again. i agree, doesnt make you think of breakups- more like gettin up and jumpin around. awesome song
