Over it now

kiss me quick
before I turn into a pumpkin
nearly sick
on the wall of death
but then you held me hard
cigarette on the ghost train
and for a while
I was someone else

I’m over it now {ah-hah}
yes I’m, I’m over it now {ah-hah}
I was falling in love
falling in love with love
but I’m over it now {ah-hah}

the boy who takes
the money on the waltzers
winked at me
I said “keep the change”
and then I smiled at you
a second-hand holiday romance
and for a while
you were someone else

I’m over it now {ah-hah}
yes I’m, I’m over it now {ah-hah}
I was falling in love
falling in love with love
but I’m, I’m over it now {ah-hah}

don’t worry baby, you don’t have to save me
don’t worry baby, you don’t have to save me

– acoustic guitar lead

I was falling in love
falling in love with love

but I’m, I’m over it now {ah-hah}
yes I’m over it now {ah-hah}
I was falling in love
I was falling in love with love
but I’m over it now
{spoken:} I’m over it!
{falling in love with love}
