I Know It's Over

Song Author Johnny Marr Lyrics by: Morrissey Performer: The Smiths Submitted by: gestny
Oh m[C]other, I can feel the soil falling over my head [Am7]    
[F] a[G]nd as I c[C]limb into an empty bed
oh well, e[Am7]nough said
[F]    [G]I know it's[F] over still I c[G]ling
[F]I don't know where else I c[G]an go, mot[F]her [G]    [F]    

Oh m[C]other, I can feel the soil falling over my head [Am7]    
[F]    [G]see, the s[C]ea wants to take me

the knife wants to slit me
do[Am] you think you can help me?
[F]Sad v[G]eiled [C]bride, please be happy
handsome groom, give her room [Am7]    
[F]loud, [G]loutish [C]lover, treat her kindly
although she needs you mor[Am7]e than she loves you
[F]An  [G]d I know it's [F]over still I cl[G]ing  
[F]I don't know where else I c[G]an go
[F]it's over, it's over,[G] it's over [F]    

I know it's [C]over
and it never r[F]eally began
[G]but in my heart [F]it was s[G]o real [Am]    
[F]and you e[G]ven spoke to me and said: [F]    [G]    

[C]"If you're so funny then why are you on your own[Am7] tonight? [F]    [G]    
[C]and if you're so clever then why are you on your o[Am7]wn tonight? [F]    [G]    
[C]if you're so very entertaining then why are you on your o[Am7]wn tonight? [F]    [G]    
[C]if you're so very good looking why do you sleep alo[Am7]ne tonight?

I kno[F]w   [G] cause t[C]onight is just like any other night
that's why you're on your o[Am7]wn tonight [F]    [G]    
with your tri[C]umphs and your charms
while the[Am7]y are in each other's arms"

[F]It's so ea[G]sy to lau[F]gh  
it's so easy to ha[G]te  
it takes stre[F]ngth to be gentle and k[G]ind  
[Fmaj9]it's over, over, over[G]    

[F]It's so e[G]asy to lau[F]gh  
it's so easy to ha[G]te  
it takes [F]guts to be gentle and k[G]ind  
[Fmaj9]it's over, over, over[G]    

Love is n[C]atural and r[F]eal [G]    
but [F]not for [G]you, my l[Am]ove   
not [F]tonight my l[G]ove  
[F]lo  [G]ve is n[C]atural and r[F]eal  
[G]but n[F]ot for such as [G]you and I, my[Em] love [F]    [G]    

Oh M[C]other, I can [F]feel the [G]soil falling [F]over [G]my h[Am]ead    [F]    [G]    [F]    [G]    
Oh M[C]other, I can [F]feel the [G]soil falling [F]over [G]my h[Am]ead    [F]    [G]    [F]    [G]    
Oh M[C]other, I can [F]feel the [G]soil falling [F]over [G]my h[Am]ead    [F]    [G]    [F]    [G]    
Oh M[C]other, I can [F]feel the [G]soil falling [F]over [G]my h[Am]ead    [F]    [G]    [F]    [G]    
Oh M[C]other, I can [F]feel the [G]soil falling [F]over [G]my h[Am]ead    [F]    [G]    [F]    [G]    

Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
and as I climb into an empty bed
oh well, enough said
I know it's over still I cling
I don't know where else I can go, mother

Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
see, the sea wants to take me

the knife wants to slit me
do you think you can help me?
Sad veiled bride, please be happy
handsome groom, give her room
loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly
although she needs you more than she loves you
And I know it's over still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
it's over, it's over, it's over

I know it's over
and it never really began
but in my heart it was so real
and you even spoke to me and said:

"If you're so funny then why are you on your own tonight?
and if you're so clever then why are you on your own tonight?
if you're so very entertaining then why are you on your own tonight?
if you're so very good looking why do you sleep alone tonight?

I know cause tonight is just like any other night
that's why you're on your own tonight
with your triumphs and your charms
while they are in each other's arms"

It's so easy to laugh
it's so easy to hate
it takes strength to be gentle and kind
it's over, over, over

It's so easy to laugh
it's so easy to hate
it takes guts to be gentle and kind
it's over, over, over

Love is natural and real
but not for you, my love
not tonight my love
love is natural and real
but not for such as you and I, my love

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
