"Over When It's Over" as written by Luke Robert Laird and Eric Church....
It's over when its over
Ain't it baby, ain't it
Rips ya like a dagger,
Can it baby, can it
Wish we could do it over
Damn it baby, damn it
We had it in the air, we just couldn't land it

Its the first snap, of the last straw,
Where regrets outlast the alcohol
It's a cold sweat, in an empty bed,
And dreams are like a knife,
When you're hangin' by a thread
And no, maybe we can make it if we just play,
The right cards.

Now its over when its over
Ain't it baby, ain't it
Rips ya like a dagger,
Can it baby, can it
Wish we could do it over
Damn it baby, damn it
We had it in the air, but just couldn't land it

It's a white flag,
It's a stop sign,
It's the last long drag, on a Marlboro Light
It's a long night, beatin' up the past
Now when the first lie, is gonna hit you back
This ain't no gone for good drill,
Or no goodbye for tomorrow, its over

Yeah its over,
Yeah its over.

There ain't no better way,
We could make it work
Its a blank page,
When you're outta words.
Yeah its a flat line,
Its a heart attack
Yeah it's too far gone, to be shocked back
It's a one way, with nowhere to turn
It's a no breaks, baby, crash and burn
Ain't no map, gonna ever bring us back
From where we are.

It's just over when its over
Ain't it baby, ain't it
Rip ya like a dagger,
Can it baby, can it
Wish we could do it over
Damn it baby, damn it
We had it in the air, and just couldn't land it
