  • Well, you were there when the wall came down
    A baby king with a grown man's crown
    And we played in the sun as the curtain was crumbling

    Well, I was young and I could not see
    That if you go, won't you please take me'
    And you told me that I would forget you eventually
    (And I nearly did)
    Yeah, yeah

    I thought it was over but it's not
    I thought it was over but it's not
    I'm spinning in circles, I can't stop
    I thought it was over but it's not

    I'm in love with a fool
    And you don't know what you've lost
    It hurts from the bottom to the top
    I thought it was over but it's not, yeah

    Another year and the job was done
    The old republic was dead and gone
    And the new way of living would be a reality

    But it's a while since you shut that door
    I lie awake, ain't asleep no more
    Though the nightmare is gone now I don't have a dream
    (I don't have a dream)

    I thought it was over but it's not
    I thought it was over but it's not
    I'm spinning in circles, I can't stop
    I thought it was over but it's not

    I'm in love with a fool
    And you don't know what you've lost
    It hurts from the bottom to the top
    I thought it was over but it's not

    Does anybody know
    Does anybody know
    Does anybody know
    Does anybody know

    I thought it was over but it's not
    I thought it was over but it's not
    I'm spinning in circles, I can't stop
    I thought it was over but it's not

    I'm in love with a fool
    And you don't know what you've lost
    It hurts from the bottom to the top
    I thought it was over but it's not Writer/s: CIARAN JEREMIAH, DANIEL SELLS, KEVIN JEREMIAH, PAUL STEWART, RICHARD JONES
