It's All Over but the Crying Lyrics

Everything you think you know, baby
Is wrong
And everything you think you had, baby
Is gone

Certain things turn ugly when you think too hard
And nagging little thoughts change into things you can't turn off
Everything you think you know, baby
Is wrong

It's all over but the crying
Fade to black, I'm sick of trying
Took too much and now I'm done
It's all over but the crying

Do you really think I'm made of stone?
Baby, c'mon
That we only love the things we own?
Baby, you're wrong

Certain things just happen when you make no plans
And love can really tear you up and it can break you down
Everything you think you know, baby
Is wrong

It's all over but the crying
Fade to black, I'm sick of trying
Took too much and now I'm done
It's all over but the crying

Baby we're done

If I could I would
I'd change everything
Cause I can't forget you though you don't believe me
Now I can't walk back
I can't leave behind
Where does it go all the light we had?

Everything you think you know, baby
Is wrong
And everything you think you had, baby
Is gone

Baby, we're done

I reckon it's definitely about the end of a relationship...they've tried and tried, and cried and cried...and now it's all over...except the crying, of course. It's finally admitting the relationship needs to die.

Beautiful song.

This song is basically about a relationship gone bad...

"Certain things just happen when you make no plans And love can really tear you up and it can break you down " Relationships fall apart when they're aimless, and love- love is so harsh. It tears apart your insides with a simple goodbye.

"Everything you think you know, baby Is wrong " Everything you think about your relationship, all the dreams for the future you have, may never come true. Lost, meaningless dreams.

"Fade to black, I'm sick of trying Took too much and now I'm done It's all over but the crying " She's been trying so hard, but it's just pointless, the relationship is going nowhere. Everything about the relationship is over, except the tears, which never seem to diminish.

Pretty straight forward song, as I see it. But so sad...

this song is really pretty.. i really like it sooo much .. i agree with killstar on their meaning of the song.. so many things in this song i can relate to... you want to turn back time... but you can't...

---"Everything you think you know, baby Is wrong ..And everything you think you had, baby Is gone " This part makes me this that... she's in a relationship .. and you know when you think everything is perfect... and then you get a slap in your face, and everything just hit rock bottom... and what you had is gone. so many she was sick of her bf or cheated on her .. or she cheated on him...

"And nagging little thoughts change into things you can't turn off " not so sure about this part ... but it could be like.. the "what if" factors... you know when you want to make a decision you always have the what if toughts like.. what if i did this or that would it make things better.... or maybe it's the nagging thoughts that like.. what she's or he's done.. and she just wants to hide from the fact that it's happened

It's all over but the crying Fade to black, I'm sick of trying Took too much and now I'm done It's all over but the crying ---this part is so self explanitory... like you try so hard... but in the end, you realize that theres no point anymore, and the only things thgat is left is the tears and pain that remain ...

sometimes you try so hard to make things perfect... or you think things are a certain way... and then you realize one day that everything is a mess.. and lost.. except for the tears .. and pain...

My (ex)boyfriend broke up with me two weeks ago and this song ireflects my throughts and feelings so well. A year ago things were perfect and we had this great thing but over the past few months something had changed.

"Certain things turn ugly when you think too hard And nagging little thoughts change Into things you can't turn off Everything you think you know, baby Is wrong "

This reminds me of the times over the past couple of months where I kept thinking about breaking up but I didn't want to. I was afraid of what might be coming, but I didn't think it would really happen. I thought we could make things better but it didn't work like that. He didn't want to be committed anymore. He finally ended things and it ended pretty bitterly.

"If I could I would I'd change everything Cause I can't forget you Though you don't believe me Now I can't walk back I can't leave behind Where does it go all the light we had?"

These are exactly the thoughts that were going through my head. Maybe I could have changed things, I have all these memories and things that remind me of him so I can't forget what was--that "light"" we had. The happiness, love and joy we saw in eachother that dissipated into short tempers, annoyance and tears. Something changed between us that caused things to crumble.

"Fade to black, I'm sick of trying Took too much and now I'm done It's all over but the crying."

This represents the end [of the relationship] for me. The light rescinded to black loneliness and sadness.

I wish I had this album two weeks ago. This song would have been perfect for my week as the human sprinkler.

I've been a Garbage fan since the beginning but no lyrics ever hit me like those

--beautiful garbage =)

An error occured.

It describes life at it's lowest ebb (in this case, when Shirley's relationship has failed). I've been a garbage fan since Stupid Girl came out. I was only 5!

Yeah, this song is beautiful. It's one of their very best songs. I love Garbage!!! These lyrics are just so powerful and sad.

this song is my favourite from the blm cd, especially the lines; Do you really think I'm made of stone? Baby, c'mon That we only love the things we own? Baby, you're wrong

i actually think it doesnt have to do with a relationship. its about unrequited love.

this girl believes that her crush loves her back. she thinks she has a chance and even though shes shy shes trying to show affection. then she finds out that he has a girlfriend and all her hopes die but her love doesnt die. shes depressed and cries because she wants to get over him, knowing she doesnt stand a chance.
