"I Thought It Was Over" as written by Daniel Sells, Paul Stewart, Richard Jones, Ciaran Jeremiah and Kevin / Jeremiah....
Well, you were there when the wall came down
A baby king with a grown man's crown
And we played in the sun as the curtain was crumbling

Well, I was young and I could not see
That if you go, won't you please take me'
And you told me that I would forget you eventually
(And I nearly did)
Yeah, yeah

I thought it was over but it's not
I thought it was over but it's not
I'm spinning in circles, I can't stop
I thought it was over but it's not

I'm in love with a fool
And you don't know what you've lost
It hurts from the bottom to the top
I thought it was over but it's not, yeah

Another year and the job was done
The old republic was dead and gone
And the new way of living would be a reality

But it's a while since you shut that door
I lie awake, ain't asleep no more
Though the nightmare is gone now I don't have a dream
(I don't have a dream)

I thought it was over but it's not
I thought it was over but it's not
I'm spinning in circles, I can't stop
I thought it was over but it's not

I'm in love with a fool
And you don't know what you've lost
It hurts from the bottom to the top
I thought it was over but it's not

Does anybody know
Does anybody know
Does anybody know
Does anybody know

I thought it was over but it's not
I thought it was over but it's not
I'm spinning in circles, I can't stop
I thought it was over but it's not

I'm in love with a fool
And you don't know what you've lost
It hurts from the bottom to the top
I thought it was over but it's not

    General CommentIt looks to me as if the song is (at least in part) about the fall of Communism in Germany. The first lines are blatantly about the fall in 1989 (references to the wall and the curtain) and then the second verse "another year and the job was done..." refers to the disappearance of East Germany a year later.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are pretty straightforward in this song. He was in love a long time ago and though he thought he had moved on, he's still in love and that hurts him. Awesome song, by the way.

    General CommentOk, I've figured out what the choir sings in the two verses:

    I could not see
    Said please take me
    Told me
    And I nearly did

    I shut that door
    I sleep on more
    Nightmare
    I don't have a dream
