Coverdale•Page – Over Now Lyrics

You said you’d give me love
Instead you caused me pain
You made me curse and slam the door
And hang my head in shame

But it’s over now
It’s over now

You talked to me of virtue
And sang a song so sweet
But all I know is I could smell
The perfume of deceit

And it’s over now
It’s over now

You told me of your innocence
And I believed it all
But your best friend is your vanity
And the mirror on the wall

It’s over now

I turned away from what I heard
And everything I saw
But now I see the light of day
I release the dog of war

So what ya gonna do when the truth pays you a call
How you gonna feel when you finally lose it all
How you gonna look standing up against the wall
What ya gonna do, what ya gonna say when you feel the hammer fall
I’m gonna see you crawl

You took your pills and washed them down
And then you talked for hours
I tried to build a garden
But you trampled all the flowers

And it’s over now

Wanting this, needing that
Always after more
Now that it’s all over
I release the dog of war
Release the dog of war

So what ya gonna do when the truth pays you a call
How you gonna look, standing up against the wall
What ya gonna do, what ya gonna say
When you feel the hammer fall

What ya gonna do, what ya gonna say
Standing up against the wall
So what ya gonna do, what ya gonna say
Mamma, when you feel the hammer fall
So what ya gonna do?
