It's Over Lyrics

by Rod Stewart

The congregation sang
We knelt and prayed
As we stood before God
On that beautiful day
The church bells rang
And the champagne flowed
As our friends gather round
For the wedding photo
But here we are barely five years on
An' our whole world's fallin' apart

All the plans we had together
Up in smoke and gone for ever
Poisoned by the lawyer's letter
It's over
I don't want our kids to suffer
Can we talk to one another
You were once my light, my lover
It's over
Rumours and whispers tear me apart
That I know you better than that

Inseparable were we
With a breeze in our sails
Now I feel a chill wind
On the marriage that failed
And I pray as I divided
They've taken their sides
Now they'll all sit back
And watch the circus arrive
I don't stand here tryin' to focus the blame
But I'm hurtin' deep down in inside

All the pain an' all the grievin'
When did we stop believin'
Too late now to stop the bleedin'
It's over
What's the sense in pointin' fingers
Who's the saint an' who's the sinner
They're ain't gonna be a winner
It's over
Oh, my dear, what happened to us?
Tell me, where did it all go wrong?

What's the use in keep on fightin'?
All the tears, all the cryin'
Why do we keep denyin'?
It's over
In all the time I thought I knew ya
Don't forget our children's future
I would do whatever suits ya
Oh ye-ah!
It's over
It's over
Yeah, it's over
