Like That, It’s Over

LIKE THAT, IT’S OVER – Written by Carroll Bryant

 

You stepped into the picture and you smiled at the camera

But when it was developed, your eyes were devil red

I put it in my album and placed it in my dresser

A meaningless suggestion and it became officially dead

Like that, it’s over

Like that, it’s in the past

I did discover

That promises don’t last

And if I never dream again of true love to come true

Like that, I’m laying it, laying it all on you

 

You walked into the kitchen and you gave to me a recipe

But I when tried to make it, you threw it in my face

I got a towel to clean it but you took it in an instant

Then you left the premises before it got too late

Like that, it’s over

Like that, it’s cut and dry

I did discover that feelings can soon die

And if I never love again like I use to do

Like that, I’m blaming it, blaming it all on you

 

Have you never wrestled with the notion not to care?

I bet you never did, I bet you never will

Have you never wrestled with the tangles in your hair?

I’ll place a bet on this that you never did

And you never will for as long as you live

 

You walked into the bedroom and I opened up the covers

To let you in to love me but you left me there to cry

I fell asleep too easy between the sheets so cold and clammy

Just to be awakened by the time that passed me by

Like that, it’s over

Like that, it’s dead and gone

I did discover my pain was your pure fun

And if I never close my eyes and hope for something new

Like that, I’m laying it, laying it all on you

 

Like that, it’s over

Like that, it’s in the past

I did discover that promises don’t last

And if I never dream again for true love to come true

Like that, I’m blaming it, blaming it all on you

 

Like that, it’s over
