It's Over Now

I am the 80, she is the 20
But you chose her anyway.
Why did your heart go astray?
I loved and cherished and cared for you
But if it wasn't enough, it's all I could do.
Why does love turn men into fools?

But it's over now,
It's over now.
Gotta move on somehow
Cause it's over now.

You wasted my time and made me think
That I was the one and this was it,
When I knew something didn't fit.
Now I'm starting to hate you
Grown weary of your lies
You say you love me but it's not in your eyes.
I've cried a thousand times.

But it's over now,
It's over now.
Gotta move on somehow
Cause it's over now.

I can't believe this love we had
Has failed the test of time.
But I'll move on, I'm strong, I'll be fine.
Together forever is what we said
I guess the marriage and kids were all in my head.
Now a part of me is dead.

Cause' it's over now,
It's over now.
Gotta move on somehow
Cause it's over now.

I'm still in disbelief that this love is done, over, and gone.
What went so wrong that we have drifted away from the sun?
My heart is aching, breaking, shaking,
Dark, and shattered, and torn.
But now I can see that you and me were not meant to be one,
Not meant to be one.

I hope you realize what you lost
I was the best you ever had.
I'm moving on, it's ok, I'm glad.
This situation showed me about myself
I'm putting everything back on the shelf.
I pray you take care of yourself.

Cause' it's over now,
It's over now.
I'm leaving now,
Cause it's over now.
