Written by Bill Mallonee for CyBrenJoJosh (BMI) ©1998

it's all over it's all over too soon
i knew it when you walked in that cold room
sooner or later we all do what we must
sooner or later comes down to trust

it's all over you walked into the night
i've been crying on the inside most of my little life
so those weren't diamonds in your hands
little bits of broken glass on the golden sand

you can conjure up your best spin
you can lie through your teeth
but you can never see the hurt
in the press release
is that me is that you in the faded light
it's hard to see the victims at the impact light
any available witnesses who saw it all with both eyes
is that you is that me paralyzed

it's all over there's no explanation
and all that's left is a messy clean up operation
sooner or later we all become what we chose
sooner or later truth be told

you don't have to say anything
each glance is a chapter
with the verdict written in your eyes
i'll take it at face value
