It's Over

It wasn’t really
Too much of a fight
He just broke what was around
Told me I was no good
I kicked the wall
Hard as I could

And I threw down my stars
And I shouted at the night
Still I couldn’t get him
To do me right

So I hung it up
And went to the local bar
And then I drove around and around in my car
I used my smile
To fabricate charm

Now the remnants of my face
Can’t make him feel that way
It’s all that I was hoping for
It’s all that’s given way

What do you do
As your lover drifts away
drifts away

He always told me
I was depressed
My restless confusion
I admit I suppressed it to try to fit an illusion
Like a bird in a net
Trying to jump up and fly

I’m not sorry that I’m angry
I’m not sorry that I’m sad
I’ve got this beautiful fever
That’s needs some love so bad

What do you do
When you love’s done been had
Yeah it's over
It's over
