  • Hey, Orpheus!
    I'm behind you
    Don't turn around
    I can find you

    Just wait until it's over
    Wait until it's through
    And if I call for you
    Oh, Orpheus!
    Just sing for me all night
    We'll wait until it's over
    Wait until it's through

    You say it's not me, it's you

    Hey, Orpheus!
    De l'autre côté de l'eau
    Comme un écho
    Just wait until it's over
    Wait until it's through

    And if I shout for you
    Never doubt
    Don't turn around too soon
    Just wait until it's over
    Wait until it's through

    It seems so important now
    But you will get over
    Seems so important now
    But you will get over
    And when you get over
    And when you get older
    Then you will remember
    Why it was so important then

    Seems like a big deal now
    But you will get over
    Seems like a big deal now
    You will get over
    When you get over
    When you get older
    Then you will discover
    That it's never over

    Hey, Eurydice!
    Can you see me?
    I will sing your name
    Till you're sick of me
    Just wait until it's over
    Just wait until it's through

    And if you call for me
    This frozen sea
    It melts beneath me
    Just wait until it's over
    Wait until it's through

    Seems like a big deal now
    You will get over
    Seems like a big deal now
    You will get over
    And when you get over
    When you get older
    You will remember

    He told you he'd wake you up
    When it was over
    He told you he'd wake you up
    When it was over
    Now that it's over
    Now that you're older
    Then you will discover

    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)

    Sometime (Sometime)
    Sometime (Sometime)
    Boy, they're gonna eat you alive (eat you alive)
    But it's never gonna happen now
    We'll figure it out somehow

    Sometime (Sometime)
    Sometime (Sometime)
    Boy, they're gonna eat you alive (eat you alive)
    But it's never gonna happen now
    We'll figure it out somehow

    'Cause it's never over
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)
    And it's never over (it's never over)
    It's never over (it's never over)

    We stood beside
    A frozen sea
    I saw you out
    In front of me
    Reflected light
    A hollow moon
    Oh Orpheus, Eurydice
    Its over too soon Writer/s: Jeremy Gara, Regine Chassagne, Richard R Parry, Tim Kingsbury, William Butler, Win Butler
