"It's Over" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
It's not over at all
You're just trying to smile
I know perfectly well
Such are things we both know
And we think we should say
Just to organize the stains
Systems reveal their construction these days
As we escape to drift further away
We know the stars go out one night
But I can't tell you anything you wouldn't know
So nothing has been lost

It's not over at all
If my thoughts could be here
They'd advice you to leave
It's not easy, I know
Making hard things look small
But we're dying to try
You have revealed your conclusion by chance
I have replaced you at little expense
We know the stars go out one night
But I can't think of anything I haven't told
Still, nothing has been lost

When you could use the words reserved for a sad song
You'll find you've spent them up on God and everyone
Like anyone before

It's not over at all
You're just trying to smile
I know perfectly well
It's not over
But oh, if my thoughts could be here
They'd advice you to leave
We will be cold where the lights are all out
But at least we can think without reason or doubt
I don't know much about this world
But I can tell you one thing as I pass you by
Nothing has been lost

    General CommentI think this song is beautiful, even when his subject matter isn't the happiest he always seems to put this "oh well life goes on" spin on his songs. i love his stuff.

    General CommentI love the sound of this song. I believe it is because he recorded himself singing it twice and the recordings overlap.

    Many of his songs seem to be about loss, the past, etc. He does find ways to put an optomistic spin on it, nevertheless.

    General CommentThis song is really interesting to me mostly because of the lyrics...

    i think this song is beautiful and cruel at the same time. it's a (more or less) objective look from his perspective.

    It's beautiful because he doesn't want it to be over (hence "it's not over"), and because he accepts his follies in the heat of the moment ("if my thoughts could be here, they'd advice you to leave" and "at least we can think without reason or doubt"). Yet, remains almost cruel in both the subject, and the fact that he dismisses it ("i have replaced you at little expense").

    nevertheless, one of my favs.
