Lyrics

I must have brought the bad weather with me
the sky's the colour of lead
all you've left me was a feather
on an unmade bed

it's always me whenever there's trouble
the world does nothing but turn
the ring it fell off my finger
I guess I'll never learn

it's over it's over it's over
I'm getting dressed in the dark
our story ends before it begins
I always confess to everyone's sins
the nail gets hammered down
it's over let it go

so don't go and make a big deal out of nothing
it's just a storm on a dime
I've always found there's nothing
that money can not buy
I've already gone to the place that I'm going
there's no place left to fall
there's something to be said
about saying nothing at all

cause baby then it's over and it's over
it's done forgotten and through
story ends before it begins
I always confess to everyone's sins
the nail gets hammered down
it's over let it go

you got to let me go
I wanna let it go
