All Over Again

All Over Again

Lori Lieberman

She’ll act as if nothing is wrong
She won’t bend and life will go on
She’ll say that you’re better off gone
Yes she will

And her friends, they don’t know what to say
She’ll tell them don’t stand in her way
And she’ll show you one of these days
What you’re missing

She waits at the schoolyard
Brown leaves are blowing
She cries out for someone
And screams out for something

The days have no light
The nights have no end
She gets up and does it
All over again

She’ll go out but how will she act
Which sweater, the brown or the black
If she keeps movin’ and never looks back
She’ll be fine

And nothing comes from her
No one can change it
Whatever she feels or whatever his name is

Her days have no life
The nights have no end
She gets up and does it
All over again
All over again

She waits there halfway between
What was and what’s not meant to be
Like a moth between the door and the screen
Will she fly

She’ll act as if nothing is wrong
And she’ll do as she likes all night long
And she’ll say that you’re better off gone
And maybe she’ll believe it
