I sat myself down Tuesday
Wrote myself a song
Just things I want to say
About what is wrong
But all of my complaining
Well, it comes to no avail
And things I really need to say
I’ve yet to learn myself

Ah but, I won’t cry, no
And I won’t wail, no
I’ll tell myself that you never fail
Until it’s over
And when it’s over, it’s over

So, I wrote myself a letter
And I sent it off to you
To make myself feel better -
I tried to tell the truth
I wrote a song for Jesus Christ
And one for Noah’s Ark
I sang a song for morning light,
And I still sat in the dark

But, I won’t cry, no
And I won’t wail, no
I’ll tell myself that you never fail
Until it’s over
And when it’s over, it’s over

So I accept I can’t do nothing
Do nothing at all
I see myself, a big long road
And I build myself a wall
I dig myself a tunnel
So I could get on under
And join the rest of the human race
Just ask why and wonder

But, I won’t cry, no
And I won’t wail, no
I’ll tell myself that you never fail
Until it’s over
And when it’s over, it’s over
And when it’s over, it’s over
It’s over, it’s over
