  • I ain't playing no games
    'Cause I've got nothing left to lose
    I'm so tired of circular motions
    They leave me dizzy and confused
    My heart, oh no, is not your revolving door
    I get stuck spinning and spinning and spinning
    Oh, 'til I collapse on the floor

    But every time that you touch me
    I forget what we're fighting about
    Oh, you come and you leave
    Shame on me for believing every word out of your mouth

    Tell me it's over
    If it's really over
    'Cause it don't feel like it's over whenever you're closing the door, no
    So tell me it's over

    Darling you
    Oh, you taste so bittersweet
    Can't get you off of my lips
    You're dangerous when you take me like a thief

    Oh and I
    I should let this go
    I try and I try, I try
    But why, why won't you leave me alone?

    Tell me it's over
    If it's really over
    'Cause it don't feel like it's over whenever you're closing the door, no
    So tell me it's over
    If it's really over
    'Cause every time you come over it doesn't feel over no more
    So tell me it's over

    I keep on leaving the light on
    Hoping to find something else, oh
    I've played the fool for the last time
    I just can't do this myself

    Tell me it's over
    If it's really over
    'Cause it don't feel like it's over whenever you're closing the door, no
    Tell me it's over
    If it's really over
    'Cause every time you come over it doesn't feel over no more
    So tell me it's over Writer/s: Avril Ramona Lavigne, Johan Jens Erik Carlsson, Justin Gray, Melissa Bel, Ryan Frank Cabrera
