The War Is Over
by Kelly Clarkson



I watch the days rush by me like a river.
I shouldn't wait, but I'm scared to touch the water.
I let the phone ring
Why won't you believe me?
I wait for silence,
Takes a lot not to answer.

All I have to say is
You don't deserve me,
You don't deserve me.
I'm finally walking away
Cause you don't deserve me,
And you're not worthy.

And I won't let you pull me in
Because I know you're gonna win. (the war is over)
But the war is over. (the war is over)
And I won't fight you anymore.
I've never been so sure. (the war is over)
Cause the war is over.

I used to let you paint a pretty picture.
You got me caught up with your, "You're my girl forever"
So I forgive you,
It felt good when you'd hold me.
Yeah, you owned me
Now you wish you had really known me.

All I have to say is
You don't deserve me
You don't deserve me.
I'm finally walking away
Cause you'll only hurt me,
And you're not worthy.
Yeah yeah.

And I won't let you pull me in,
Because I know you're gonna win. (the war is over)
But the war is over. (the war is over)
And I won't fight you anymore.
I've never been so sure. (the war is over)

This is not my surrender,
I'm not running for cover.
I'm right here, I know you see me.
But you're words no longer defeat me.
In the night, when you're lonely,
You remember how much you miss me.
So you call, but I swear,
You can try a million times
You'll get the same answer

All I have to say is
You don't deserve me,
You don't deserve me.
I'm finally walking away
Cause you'll only hurt me,
And you're not worthy.

And I won't let you pull me in
Because I know you're gonna win. (the war is over)
But the war is over. (the war is over)

The war is over
The war is over
The war is over
The war is over
The war is over
The war is over
