Everything Is Over

I don't want to write these words
because I don't want to think these thoughts
but how can I not think? when it surrounds me
everywhere I go

I can't stop feeling it
the pain and the love exist
And such little time ago
It seems so long, long ago
I held what I loved in my hand
but it slipped through the spaces, never to come back again

Everything is over
It's done for
It's gone

Everything that is, now was
in the past
and I can't go back

Everything is over
It's done
I'm finished for the end

Everything is over
How can I relive a touch, a feeling?
It's done, done
And I can't go back

It will happen all over again
Fall apart all over again
Experience the happiness,the joy,
then the love,
followed by pain
here to choke me down

It will happen all over again
all over again
The same thing, the same thing
But I'm better off in the end

How can you tell me I'm better now? than before
Everything in pieces on the ground
How can you tell me I'm better now? than before
Better now, now broken
on the floor

I get what I want but I never wanted this
I get what I want but I never wanted this
I get what I want but I never wanted this

I think you did a good job but when I read it I could see it happen but I couldn't really feel the emotion like other writers do with there work. I hope you practice alot. No hard feelings, just an honest opinion. (:

What was it you never wanted? Because this is a song I could sing to myself over and over again... If only I knew the tune.

This is beautiful - Keep Writing More!! :)
