"When It's Over" as written by and Paul Warren/reno Dean....
When you look into his eyes
Comes to you as no surprise
It's always the same
Every time he's out with you
He tries to tell you what to do
You don't need it that way

Sometimes you think you're playing the fool
He's running around breaking all the rules
Somehow that don't seem fair
There's got to be a better way
You know what I'm trying to say

'Cause deep, deep down inside
You're living in a life in total lies

What did he ever do for you
What's he trying to put you through
I just don't understand

You showed him love and tenderness
Touched him with your sweet caress
Now he's leaving you

So what's the point in working it out
Tell me what it's all about
That's why I'm saying

I hope you're with me
I hope you're with me when it's over
I hope you're with me
I hope you're with me when it's over

You won't be lonely
You won't be lonely when it's over
You won't be lonely (you)
When it's over

It's over, it's over, it's over
It's over, it's over, it's over

And in the morning when he's gone
Please don't sing that sad, sad song
I don't want to hear it

Forget about him
Let him go
It won't hurt what he don't know

What's he trying to say to you
What's he trying to tell you
He don't really care

Face the truth and realize
You don't need his alibi's
No more

I hope you're with me
I hope you're with me when it's over
I hope you're with me
I hope you're with me when it's over

You won't be lonely
You won't be lonely when it's over
You won't be lonely (you)
When it's over

It's over, it's over, it's over
It's over, it's over, it's over

    General CommentDean's guitar really comes out in this one. Awesome vocals. This is probably the most under-rated Loverboy tune.

    General Commentit seems to me that it's about a girl who's with this guy and he treats her like crap and cheats on her, and another guy who's good friends with the girl is telling her "look, you deserve better than this. you should leave him." he also insinuates that she should leave the first guy for him.

    General CommentI knew Loverboy when they were a garage band in Calgary in the 70's. Mike Reno's girlfriend was Laurel Sweet, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who had supported him through all his musical strivings for many years, financially as well as emotionally. I like to think this song was for her. Though she got dumped of course, when the groupies came around.
