lyrics

It’s Over Now
© 2004 Jason Johnston

Well it’s over now, wish I’d seen it coming
Guess it’s like the train you hear
But can’t understand it’s rumbling

It’s tumbling, like a weed down a dusty path
Guess I could chase it
But it’s slipped beyond my grasp

So I take a long gasp, as I figure out my plan
It’s been a little clearer
Since I took a harder stand

When I take all I can, seems there's one more thing learn
There's a lesson in the fire, and a telling in their words

--- break ---

Though the arrows sting and burn, It's the cost o f honesty
There's another way but it's the truth that sets men free

And the fog is all I see, wrestling with the constant hour
Looking for a minute I can stop and smell the flowers

But all I smell is this here coward, who lets it all just go on past
So I’m left here all alone
Catching tears in an empty glass...
