Lyrics

The party's over now
Over your shoulder now
And claiming that we could defy gravity
Was never a sensible policy

The morning after hurts
Feeling the bubble burst
To find we've been living beyond our means
To see we bought into a powerful dream
The party's over now

And did you believe it would last forever now?
Did you believe we could stay in the air some how?
And do you believe that we've reached the bottom now
Or is it going to get worse?

The party's over now
Of this there is no doubt
We don't need to wait till the figures come in
You know by the pain what a mess we are in

We should have looked ahead
We could have hedged our bets
Well hindsight, they say, is a wonderful thing
But I disagree cos it carries a sting
The party's over now

And did you believe it would last forever now?
Did you believe we could keep it together some how?

And the ones who brought us down
Are the ones we cling to now
We seek security
In those good memories
When they say stick with me
Ain't that an irony?

Yeah isn't it strange how we still feel indebted somehow?
And did we believe it would last forever now?
And do we agree that we've reached the bottom for now
Or is it going to get worse?

The party's over now
