"Over" as written by Sara Taylor and Michael Rainbow....
He watches her while she is sleeping
He wonders if he could watch her forever
He wants to know every secret she keeps
He wants to know what it is that keeps them together
He doesn't know what is real anymore
He tries to read the reflections from her eyes
He never stopped to think about love and direction
He only took the truth from his paranoid lies

Sometimes the beauty starts to die
When it's over
Torture yourself by asking why
But it's over

She watches him as he is leaving
She waits all night till he comes home
She fabricates another reason to stay
She's always so afraid of being alone
She doesn't know what is real anymore
She tries to read the reflections from his eyes
She never stopped to think about love and direction
She only took the truth from her paranoid lies

Sometimes the beauty starts to die
When it's over
Torture yourself by asking why
But it's over

    General CommentIncredible song. Sounds like it's about a couple who really should seperate but they both want to hold on to something that isn't as it was before.

    General CommentTo me it sounds like a controlling boyfriend. "He watches her while she's sleeping" "He wants to know every secret she keeps" he assumes she wants to leave so he tries to contr things by trying to make her stay. He lets it get the best of him and he begins to be kinda mean to her. "She watches him while he's leaving" he's going to work, and she imagines losing him and don't want to leave him cause she loves him, but something about him has changed. "She fabricates another reason to stay." She tries to think of reasons why leaving would be a bad idea. Then she tries and tries to find the hood but can't as he gets more paranoid, she starts to get paranoid about him leaving. What if one another was cheating. They both get suspicions of each other. They know it won't last. But they try to pretend like it will. "Sometimes the beauty starts to die when it's over" the relationship is over and now the beauty is starting to die. The affection is fading, the beauty, the love, the closeness. "Torture yourself by asking why, but it's over." They keep asking themselves why it's not working out. They start to blame themselves but don't know who did the wrong. Really it's just a love ruined by suspicion, or cheating. They can't find there love anymore so before the break up. It's over. Before it's offically over. They know it's over.

    That's what I think... I know it's about a break up. There music really does paint a picture for you <3 TBM

    General CommentWOW. Another great TBM song. I'm starting to really like them. So yeah, basically this song is just about a couple and having no trust in a relationship and they should leave each other, yet they stay together.

    General Comment" He watches her while she is sleeping
    He wonders if he could watch her forever"

    every guy i think, has been in this position

    to me it's like the guy is the one that has no trust within her lol

    "He wants to know every secret she keeps
    He wants to know what it is that keeps them together
    He doesn't know what is real anymore "

    he feel's he's being lied to , perhap's he feel's she's cheated on him?,or going behind his back about thing's.and the more he think's about it the more paranoid he get's causing his to not know what is real anymore is it truth? is his paranoiad dillusions?He doesn't know wha tkeep's them together it's as if by him feeling she is lying to him and him not having any trust he doesnt feel the same as he did and doesnt think they should be together.

    "She fabricates another reason to stay
    She's always so afraid of being alone"

    to me this is her always coming up with some excuse as not to leave being of her fear of being alone,feeling that if she doesnt take this chance although she doesnt really want it ,she may never have this oppourtunity again to be with him, and of course he is feeling the same way,Both caught up in Paranoid thought's about wha tthe other one is doing behind each other's back's lack of trust perhap's this could have been solved by better communication between the two? lol

    "He/She tries to read the reflections from his/her eyes
    He/She never stopped to think about love and direction
    He/She only took the truth from his/her paranoid lies"

    They tried to read the reflection's in each other's eye's,it's like you can always tell what someone is feeling perhaps what they are thinking just by the way they look at you.Depending on how well you know the person i suppose nevertheless this got the couple nowhere they never stopped to think about love and direction..to me that's like they didn't stop and take time to appreciate one another to really Love each other.
    and Taking the truth from paranoid lies is like ..as they are questioning these thing's about one another they start to feel it's really happening thus in their mind making it a reality.

    "Sometimes the beauty starts to die
    When it's over
    Torture yourself by asking why
    But it's over"

    when you know it's over beauty does start to die feeling's weaken thus making it a little easier to part, yet you allways seem to end up asking yourself why only to worry yourself about it and making matter's worse

    "but it's over" - exactly it's OVER so why ask yourself why? hmm?

    General Commentto me, this song is a simple story about a relationship where the love died- but no one wants to admit it. or maybe they were never really in love? either way, they're not completely open with each other, which seems to be the heart of the problem.

    because of that, they can't confront the issues and get them over with. as a result, they continue to live together, as though still in love, when really both of them are silently questioning why they're even together still.

    i just realized i pretty much agreed with everyone else. *yaay* anyway, this song is awesome. it's one of my favorites by TBM.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song atm.
    I love tbm's sound, it really grabs you and paints a picture in your head..
    it seems to basically be about distrust and paranoia in a relationship and a reluctance to accept it's Over.
    ..heh

    General CommentThey're both convincing themselves that one another is cheating in their relationship. They're questioning themselves, and believing their paranoid lies. Also, the lines "Sometimes the beauty starts to die", they're attraction they once had for each other is now fading. What they see of each other is not what it used to be. Perhaps the boy saw her as beautiful, but now that he thinks she is unfaithful, he sees her as ugly, the same goes for the girl.
