Play Video


  • This song is about a fight between a guy and his girlfriend. He knows he did something wrong, and is pleading with her not to leave. The line, "I lose myself in all these fights, I lose my sense of wrong and right" indicates that he's said something that greatly upset her. Throughout the song, he repeats, "It's not over" in an attempt to convince her not to go. >>
