Over Long Ago
(Markus Rill)

Nothing I wanna look back on in the rearview
nothing but dark clouds ahead
what's been done to me I cannot undo
and I can't forget
that was so long ago, not long enough ago yet

The things that I learned in the nighttime
they ain't the things that you know from being smart
I learned them fearing and hurting and crying
from the man in the dark
that was so long ago, still I'm coming apart

When will all of this be over
when will the past be done, when can I forget?
When will long ago be over
cause I ain't over long ago yet

So I keep the doors locked when I'm sleeping
and I never tell anyone
I just lie with my back to the wall
keeping the lights on
when will long ago be over and these memories be gone

When will all of this be over
when will the past be done, when can I forget?
When will long ago be over?
cause I ain't over long ago yet

No, it ain't over yet
it ain't over yet

Nothing I wanna go back to in my rearview
I'd rather know what's to come
I've tried to deny what I've been through
and I've tried to run
when will long ago be over? It's been going on too long
