Anything But Over

Music and Lyrics by Mary Ott
Copyright 2001

My mind flashes through pictures,
Taken back in the time.
When you and I were together,
I was your?s and you were mine,
That was back in the time.
Our laughter fills my memories,
How much joy can one heart hold.
I don?t know which makes it harder,
Havin? those memories, or now my bed cold.
Lover, take me with you,
As you journey to the next.
Our time together was too short
The love we shared the best.
I will whisper sweet surrender,
As you whisper, sweet , love you?s
Tell me once again your stories.
Say anything,
Tell me anything
Say Anything
Anything But Over.

Why do we give our love away,
To have it met with a wonderous day.
I wanted years and years with you,
Life give us everything, but only two.
