it’s all over lyrics – david gray

in the bitter violent night
the stars wear sour grins
in the vastness of the black sky
i? m cradled in your arms
unbridled by alarm
and i know the end is nigh

it’s all over, bar the shoutin’
one thing’s for sure
it’s all over now
it’s all over now

confusion wanders in
strides the evening like a king
chaos and turmoil prevail
bedlam reigns, hope is drowned
but strangely we settle down
resigned to the sinking ship on which we sail

it’s all over, bar the shoutin’
one thing’s for sure
hey, it’s all over now
hey, all over now

our love’s just smithereens
too much beer in my head
another night is getting late
i don’t know which way to go
there’s just this long white road
and i can’t think straight

no, i can’t think straight
no, i can’t think straight
no, i can’t think straight
no, i can’t think straight

it’s all over, bar the shoutin’
it’s all over, bar the shoutin’

it’s all over, bar the shoutin’
one thing’s for sure
hey, it’s all over now
hey, all over now

go, go go go

hey, all over now
oh, it’s all over now
bar the shoutin’, now
well, that’s the glory, now now
don’t let it fall
don’t let it fall
