About It's Over

"It's Over" is a 1966 song written and originally performed by Jimmie Rodgers. He released it as a single in 1966, with "Anita, You're Dreaming" on the flip side. Elvis Presley recorded a live version of "It's Over" at his January 14, 1973 televised comeback concert Aloha from Hawaii. The recording was first released on the LP Aloha from Hawaii. He also had recorded the song live (for RCA and MGM) in April 1972. Another live recording, from February 17, 1972, was released in 1995 on the box set Walk a Mile in My Shoes: The Essential '70s Masters. Jimmie Rodgers recalled: I was with Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass at Carnegie Hall in New York, and there was a girl there at the show. She was standing outside crying and we began to talk. She had just broken up with her boyfriend. I asked if she was okay. She said, "No, my boyfriend and I broke up today and it's over." I went back to my room and wrote "It's Over." I never had Elvis in mind to do it when I wrote the song. The song has also been covered by Glen Campbell (in 1967) and by Dusty Springfield.

If time were not a moving thing 
And I could make it stay 
This hour of love we share would always be 
There'd be no coming day
To shine a morning light 
Make us realize our night
Is over

When you walk away from me there 
Is no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes against the sun 
That rises o'er the land
I watch you walk away somehow 
I have to let you go now 
It's over

If you knew just how I really
Feel you might return and yet
There are so many times that people 
Have to love and then forget
Though there might have been a way 
I have to force myself to say 
It's over

So I turn my back and 
Turn my collar to the wind
Move along in silence 
Tryin' not to think at all
Send my tired feet before me
Walk the silent street before me 
It's over 
It's over
