"Done Is Done" as written by and Erik Hans/farm Ohlsson....
You don't know what you're looking for
You're lost in the past
You don't know who you are anymore
How long will it last?

Well, it will last as long as you're gone
In the future or past
There's a crusher ahead
Because you mind real fast

If it was yesterday I would let you go
Are you happy if the answer?s no?
It will soon be the time
To make it so, yeah

what's done is done
You need to set your ways
And that is you
You in your future days

The space is slim
So meet my everyone
So, please, I said
What's done is done

You don't know what you are any more
Just know where you've been
It doesn't matter how it all was before
Let the present begin
Big decision for a man in the daze
To leave the haze, yeah

what's done is done
You need to set your ways
And that is you
You in your future days

The space is slim
So meet my everyone
So, please, I said
What's done is done
What's done is done

Movement is a sign of life
Keep moving forward, life
There is no going back from here
In spite of all your fight

there's no point in blaming yourself
For the wrongs you've done
The game that is really numb
No need to be on the run

what's done is done
You need to set your ways
And that is you
You in your future days

The space is slim
So meet my everyone
So, please, I said
What's done is done
What's done is done
What's done is done

So, please, I said
What's done is done
What's done is done
What's done is done

So, please, I said
What's done is done
What's done is done

    General CommentI personally love this album. Done Is Done is a personal favourite but I think the whole album is one of their best!

    I think this song is pretty self explanatory, what's done is done so just accept it and get on with things, the chorus sums up the whole song in my opinion.

    General CommentI heard this song on the NHL 09 soundtrack so I'm not familiar with the band or their lyrics. I do believe the lyrics here are incorrect. Here is what I hear:

    You don�t know what you�re looking for
    You�re lost in the past
    You don�t know who you are anymore
    How long will it last?

    Well, it will last as long as you�re gone
    In the future or past.
    There�s a crusher ahead
    Makeup your mind real fast.
    If it was yesterday I would let you go
    Are you happy if the answer�s no?
    then its suddenly time to make it so, yeah...

    What�s done is done
    You need to set your ways
    And that is you
    You in your future days
    mistakes and slips
    are made by everyone
    So, please, accept
    What�s done is done

    You don�t know where you are any more
    Just know where you�ve been
    It doesn�t matter how it all was before
    Let the present begin
    Big decision for a man in the daze
    To leave the haze, yeah...

    Movement is a sign of life, keep moving forward, life
    There is no going back from here in spite of all your fight
    There�s no point in blaming yourself for the wrongs you�ve done
    The game that is really numb, no need to be on the run

    So, please, accept
    What�s done is done
    What�s done is done
    What�s done is done


    I could be wrong as there is definitely an accent within the singing .

    I think that while the meaning is obvious, it stretches a little deeper. The person is beating themselves up until they are powerless to move forward at all. The "daze" could be interpreted as drugs or just as the cloudiness of vision that comes with feeling overwhelmed by the troubles of life.

    Either way, its a positive song which speaks many truths. Keep moving forward, don't dwell on the past which you cant' control. We all fuck up, accept that and lets keep moving.
