"Til It's Over" as written by and Billy Squier....
It's not over til it's over...it's not over til the end
It's not over til it's over...so we struggle to pretend

Hesitation makes you over...we all walk in our own way
Shadows deepen when it's over...through the summer of longer days

Cast in the call of a million smiles blown away
Everytime you fall it's a thousand times torn away
Castles built to fall with the sands of time wash away

No escapin' til it's over...friends will say it's not the same
Memories falter when it's over...some are lost and some remain

Someone take me when it's over...set a lantern by the door
Can't forget you...but I can't hold on...toss the anchor from off the shore

Cast in the call of a million smiles blown away
Everytime you fall it's a thousand times torn away
Castles built to fall with the sands of time wash away
Castles built to fall with the sands of time wash away

...will the moment come again
I still love you when it's over...i still want you to come again

    General CommentI love this song, and think it's one of Billy's best songs. On the surface it sounds like someone is ready to quit life, but I think Billy at this stage could see he'd peaked in his music career. Don't Say No and Emotions in Motion peaked at #5 on the US charts in 1981 and 1982. This album peaked at #11 and the following album peaked at #61. I think cast in the call of a million smiles is faces he'd seen in concert. He was blown away by them. Can't forget you but I can't hold on must have been touring burnout, or perhaps tiredness of the pressure to produce hits. I still love you when it's over sounds like a message to the fans to me, he still wants them to come back later if he continues.
