"It's Over" as written by and Jimmie Rodgers....
If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This love we shared
Would always be
There'd be no coming day
No morning light above
To make me realize our love
Is over

And now you walk away from me
And there's no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes
Against the sun that comes to warm the land
I watch you walk away somehow
I have to let you go now
It's over

It's too late to tell you how I feel
Our love was real
And yet, there are so many times
That people have to love and then forget
Though there might have been a way
I have to force myself to say
It's over

And so I walk away and turn my collar to the wind
I walk along in silence trying not to think at all
I put my feet before me
Walk the silent street before me
It's over

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This love we shared would always be
There'd be no coming day
No morning light above
To make me realize our love
Is over

It's over
It's over
It's over

    General CommentI'm so surprised no one has commented on this fantastic song. The way Dusty sings it, shes brings it to life and puts so much feeling into it. This song is about letting someone you deeply care and love for walk away. You have to let them go. In the song dusty continues to sing "Its over" in the chorus as if she is almost trying very hard to convince herself. Making yourself let go of the love you have for someone is possibly one of the hardest things to do. But it is a must if the other person does not feel it too, or sees other things as more important. So that is why we have this song, to try come to terms with that missing piece we will always feel. On a lighter note, A good way to look at this is that you are teaching the person a lesson. The next time someone really cares about them, they shouldn't simply walk out on the person who cares so much. And one day in time they'll realize that they may never ever have it the same.
