​It's Over

This song is by Lisa Loeb and appears on the album The Purple Tape (1992) and on the album Tails (1995).

Sorry sir, I stole your money.
Sorry sir, I feel,
But it's so, so twisted,
So unreal.

It was what I'd heard of,
And what I didn't have,
But I cannot give what I do not have,
And I cannot take what I do not have.
I can't take it.

Don't stultify
Don't hold me high.
Don't stultify
Don't hold me high.

Too many things held precious,
Too many things held dear;
That's what I hate,
And that's what I fear.
Too much to ask for
May leave me feeling lonely.
But too little leaves me nothing, nothing.

The drone in your voice and the fly on the wall said,
"It's over, it's over, it's over, it is."
What do I wish for you, what do I wish?
It's over, it's over, it is.

Are we still solemn and bleeding?
Are we still swimming to water that was wet?
You can't give away certain things that you get.

From the outside,
To the inside.
I couldn't tell you how it really was.
There has to be more on one hand,
Keep your head above water on the other, the other.

The drone in your voice and the fly on the wall said,
"It's over, it's over, it's over, it is."
What do I wish for you, what do I wish?
It's over, it's over, it is.

Are we all still solemn and bleeding?
Are we still swimming to water that was already wet?
I can forgive, but I won't forget.

I'll wish for you.
I'll plead and I'll steal.
Hold me precious, hold me dear.
I'll wish for you,
I'll sing and I'll feel.
Don't stultify
Don't hold me high.

Like a Gothic staple, a last goodbye,
One way to float is if you die.
And it's over, it's over, it's over.

It's over, it's over, it's over,
It's over, it's over.
