My tears run down like razorblades.
I know I’m not the one to blame.
It’s you, or is it me?
And all the words we never say come out,
and now we’re all ashamed.
And there’s no sense in playing games
when you've done all you can do.

But now it’s over.
It’s over.
Why is it over?
We had the chance to make it.
Now, it’s over.
It’s over.
It can’t be over.
I wish that I could take it back,
but it’s over

I lose myself in all these fights.
I lose my sense of wrong and right.
I cry,
I cry.,
shaking from the pain that’s in my head.
I just wanna crawl into my bed
and throw away the life I lead,
but I won’t let it die,
but I won’t let it die.

But it’s over.
It’s over.
Why is it over?
We had the chance to make it.
Now, it’s over.
It’s over.
It can’t be over.
I wish that I could take it back.

I’m falling apart.
I’m falling apart.
Don’t say this won’t last forever.
You’re breaking my heart.
You’re breaking my heart.
Don’t tell me that we will never be together.
We could be over and over.
We could be forever.

I’m falling apart.
I’m falling apart.
Don’t say this won’t last forever.
You’re breaking my heart.
You’re breaking my heart.
Don’t tell me that we will never be together.
We could be over and over.
We could be forever.

It’s not over.
It’s not over.
It’s never over,
unless you let it take you.
It’s not over.
It’s not over.
It’s not over,
unless you let it break you.
It’s not over.

    General Commenti think it's about how you just can't let something go, and no matter how hard to try to tell yourself somethings over it doesn't work, cause you can't grasp the idea of it being over.

    General Commenti think its about regreting something that you let go but you cant get it back because it says "i wish that i could take it back. but now its over." but then i might be wrong but yeah thats what i think.

    General CommentWow, I just found this dude on myspace and I totally balled my eyes out when I heard the song.

    It's so emotional and I haven't been this moved by a song in a long time.

    It's truly a masterpiece and I love it!
