"Now That It's Over" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
Yeah right!

Break down
And shake for me
Nothing ever is the way
You want it to be
Nothing even tastes right
Now that it's over

Break down
And shake for me
Don't write words
Unless you want me to read them
Nothing really matters
Now that it's over

Maybe we can be friends
Now that we're older
We can have fun
Like we did in the early days
Now that it's over

Yeah right!

Break down
And shake for me
Nothing ever seems
The way it ought to be
Nothing ever seems right
Now that it's over

Yeah now maybe we can be friends
Maybe we can be closer
We can have fun
Like we did in the old days
Now that it's over

My bad dreams just don't seem the same
Baby without you
I wish you were willing to accept the blame
Yeah for everything you do

My nightmares just don't scare me now
Baby without you
I wish that I could find the words to tell
In the best way possible
You and your friends to go to hell

Ooh, break up time
Is never easy to do
Nothing ever ends
The way you want it to
Nothing seems to make sense
Now that it's over

Yeah now maybe we can be friends
Yeah now that you're leaving
You can be nice to me
Maybe I'm dreaming
I am a lot better now than just OK
Maybe I am just waking up
In my own way
Now that it's over

Now that it's over

My bad dreams just don't seem the same
Baby without you
I wish you were willing to accept the blame
Yeah for all the shitty things you do
Nightmares just don't scare me now
Baby without you
I wish that I could find the words to tell
You to go politely go fuck yourself
Yeah now that it's over

Now that it's over [Repeat x4]

    General Commentthis song is awesome. It's pretty obvious what it's about. A bad breakup, and now they are not on good terms. It's exactly how me and my ex are right now. The last lines..."i wish i could find the words to tell you to politely go fuck yourself, yeah now that it's over" that's the best. That's how i feel about my ex right now. this song is just sweet :)

    General CommentI agree with KtRu. I got second placed to cigarettes by my ex-boyfriend, and I totally feel this song. It's my newest anthem.

    I wish that I could find the words to tell tou to politely go fuck yourself, Jordan.

    General Commentwhy do you need to be polite about telling someone to fuck themselves? Being inpolite leaves such a stronger message
