"The Party's Over (hopelessly In Love)" as written by and Steve Perry....
You never call me up
When I'm alone at night.
What can this poor boy do,
When he's hopelessly in love with you?
So I will tell you now
This love is fallin' down.
Just what more can I do,
When I'm hopelessly in love with you?

Hopelessly in love
Hopelessly in love
Hopelessly in love with you.


So I will tell you this,
Our love is in a fix.
Just what more can I do.
When I'm hopelessly in love with you?

You never call me up
When I'm alone at night.
What can this poor boy do,
When he's hopelessly in love with you?

Hopelessly in love
Hopelessly in love
Hopelessly in love with you

Hopelessly in love
Hopelessly in love
I'm hopelessly in love with you

Oh, bye-bye, baby
The party's over,
I have gone away.
The party's over,
I have gone away.
The party's over,
I have gone away.
The party's over,
I have gone away.
Ooo, the party's over,
I have gone away.

    General CommentWhere it says "Our love is in abyss" I thought they were saying "Our love is in a fix." The song is about leaving a one sided relationship.

    General CommentIt's a good song. Had some interesting guitar riffs and piano parts and even catchy melodies. Too bad it wasn't more popular. Yea pretty much about that emotional shift you feel when you realize you're in a one sided relationship with someone you really have heavy feelings for. When you like someone you never know for sure whether they'll like you back or not right away and in that time one usually believes that they would and it's all fun and games. Then if and when you find out it's actually the opposite of what you expected, then "the party's over". "I have gone away" to me means how you can go from feeling you get of your world falling in on you, and how it can turn you into a very bitter moody and even surly person that upsets others around and really isn't your normal personality until you can learn to get over your loss. The rest of the lyrics pretty much speak for themselves, though I'm sure "our love is an abyss" signifies how difficult and tedious it is to leave a one sided relationship. Especially if the person still wants you in their friendzone and you still have strong feelings for them. That's pretty much how I relate to this, because I've been there before. It's no party. That's for sure.
