"Over"

Music and Lyrics by Rachael Yamagata

From the album TIGHTROPE WALKER out 9/23

 

YOU WENT ONE WAY I HAVE GONE THE OTHER

WATER SHAPES THE STONE AND AIR IS FREE

WE KNEW WE WEREN’T QUITE RIGHT FOR EACH OTHER

BEST TO KEEP OUR DISTANCE PEACEFULLY

 

THIS IS OVER OVER OVER

THIS IS WHO WE HAVE BECOME

THIS IS OVER OVER OVER

THIS IS DONE 

THE DREAMS WE HAD WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

 

LATELY I’VE STOPPED LISTENING TO VOICES

URGING ME TO OPEN UP THE DOOR

THANKFULLY I DON’T REGRET MY CHOICES

HISTORY HAS BROUGHT ME BACK BEFORE

 

BUT THIS IS OVER OVER OVER

THIS IS WHO WE HAVE BECOME

THIS IS OVER OVER OVER

THIS IS DONE 

THE DREAMS WE HAD WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

 

IT AIN’T EASY BUT IT’S RIGHT

WE HOLD SO VERY TIGHT

WE HOLD WITH OUR LIVES

 

LET IT GO - LIKE CHANCES WE ALL TAKE

WE ALL KNOW – NO SUCH THING AS NO MISTAKE

LET IT GO - LIKE CHANCES WE ALL TAKE

TAKE THE BROKEN PIECES BACK TODAY

LET IT GO – THE CHANCES WE ALL TAKE

WE ALL KNOW

TODAY BEGINS ANEW

YOU WENT ONE WAY I HAVE GONE THE OTHER…
