lyrics

When It’s Over

She was looking for an angel.
He was learning how to fly.
He could not foresee the danger,
In the tears that she had cried.
He thought that he could save her,
And lift her toward the sky.

He could feel the winds beneath him,
As his wings, she did unfold,
And she wrapped him in her blanket,
When she said he made her whole,
But the blanket, it was fraying
And he began to feel the cold.

When he met her eyes he came to realize
That he could not share her soul.
Between the head and heart, the conflict played its part
And the words fought in his throat.

When it’s over you can’t just let it drift away.
When it’s over you must let it go today.
If you hold off until tomorrow, the sorrow will just follow
And your tomorrows will just haunt you… today.

With her blanket wrapped around him,
He could no longer spread his wings.
But he did not want to hurt her,
No, not for anything,
But he was feeling he was grounded
By the weight upon his wings.

When we learn to fly we need to recognize
When to hold on and to let go.
And when the head and heart are tearing you apart,
The answer’s in your soul.

When it’s over you can’t just let it drift away.
When it’s over you must let it go today.
When it’s over there really is no other way.
When it’s over you’ve got to end it right away.
If you hold off until tomorrow, the sorrow will just follow
And your tomorrows will just haunt you… today.

She was looking for an angel.
He was learning how to fly.
