When It's Over And Done, Then It's Gone [Bonus Track]

Album: A Coming Of Age [2010]
Author: Andrew Laidlaw

If a tree falls when we’re in the forest and comes down upon us

Like hammer on nail, who will notice

Bat even an eyelid? 

If you knew what I did, then why would you care? 


If the banks burst while we’re by the river and I can’t deliver the things that I said, 

If my heart fails and with it my promise, if we’re being honest, I’m better off dead 


Life can never be all that you long for it to be, symmetry and time ain’t best friends

But I’m reluctant to admit that it’s over, I won’t quit

I’ll hang on ‘til the bitter end 


If the land slides while we’re on the hillside my darling I can’t lie, I knew it would come 

If there’s one thing that’s sure in this lifetime, you’ll get yours, and I mine

When it’s done, then it’s gone 

When it’s over and done, then it’s gone, gone, gone

When it’s over and done, then it’s gone
