"It's All Over Now" as written by Bobby Womack and Shirley Womack....
Well, baby used to stay out all night long
She made me cry, she done me wrong
She hurt my eyes open, that's no lie
Tables turn and now her turn to cry

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Well, she used to run around with every man in town
She spent all my money, playing her high class game
She put me out, it was a pity how I cried
Tables turn and now her turn to cry

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Well, I used to wake in the morning, get my breakfast in bed
When I'd gotten worried she'd ease my aching head
But now she's here and there, with every man in town
Still trying to take me for that same old clown

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

    General CommentThis is actually cleanest songs where I've ever heard the base guitar. I love this song just for that reason.

    My Interpretation"she hurt my eye open"I guess it means that while she was hurting me i could see that she is hurting me
    so that hurts much more/
    knowing that someone you love is hurting you hurts more and...
    who knows who wrote this song?

    General CommentWhat does "she hurt my eyes open" mean? She hurt me so much that it made me realize that she was hurting me? Or realize that my eyes were closed?
