When It's Over

This song is testimony to how hard it is to occupy two headspaces at once. For the past two weeks I have been trying to write a theory paper for my PhD, which is quite complex and difficult to get my head around, while simultaneously rehearsing for some acoustic solo shows. I'm not sure which task is more difficult, but I know which is more appealing.

Last Friday morning I picked up the guitar just to have a play while avoiding writing the paper, and this rhythm and tune popped into my head. I made up some nonsense words to fill the spaces and they slowly turned into the chorus. I guess I was reflecting on the ups and downs of relationships, and this is what emerged. I added the middle 8 over the next week and will post a recording ASAP ... still not quite happy with it, and I have no idea what the title should be. Thoughts? Suggestions?

It's in C and played with a capo on the 5th fret.


When It's Over

So I say where you going
And you say limousine
And I say where it takes us tomorrow
And you want to know where we’ve been.

And we’re done
And it’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
And we start all over again
It’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
Then we start all over again

So I go where I want to
And you go out in the rain
And I go to a place you can’t follow
And you go slowly insane

And we’re done
And it’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
And we start all over again
It’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
Then we start all over again

Talk to me now, now
Let the silence tell you how
There’s so much to say

Hold me close now, now
We can turn it around
Don’t walk away

And we’re done
And it’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
And we start all over again
It’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
Then we start all over again
And it’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
And we start all over again
It’s over
And we see what it isn’t
And we’re done
And it’s over
Then we start all over again
Then we start all over again
Then we start all over again

Here's a very rough video of me performing it at the Fretfest semi-final in 2007 at QPAC:
