It's Over
Alexandra Burke Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Time is held, I can't catch my breath.
Been fighting so long I just ain't got nothing left,
Are we done....Cos I can't take it anymore. I just can't take it.
Been so long since I was close enough to smell your smell.
Telling me the love was still if it is boy I can't tell.
Are we done....Cos I can't take it anymore. Said I just can't take it.

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore.

Say I'm trippin' when I tell you that we've changed,
that your friends, my friend and everybody saying the same thinng.
Are we done....Cos I can't take it anymore. Said I just can't take it.
I've been noticing the way you get dressed up to go to the store.
It's right around the corner, but you be gone an hour sometimes more.
I ain't the one and I can't take it anymore. Said I just can't take it.

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.

I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore. (Just can't take it anymore)

We can be honest, we have no reason to lie.
(Baby we don't have to deny)
Whatever happens we can't say we didn't try.
(Nothing for us to do now but say goodbye)

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore.

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,




I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Alexandra Burke's song It's Over depicts a relationship that has reached its breaking point. The opening lines convey the feeling of exhaustion and hopelessness. The singer is worn out from fighting for the relationship for so long and feels like there is nothing left to give. The image of not being able to catch her breath highlights the tension and stress that has been building up in the relationship.


The song describes a couple that has grown apart, and the singer can no longer deny the signs that something has changed. The line "Are we done, cos I can't take it anymore" is repeated throughout the song, emphasizing the singer's desperation to end the relationship. She can't smell her partner's scent, and she is not sure if he still loves her, which highlights the emotional distance between them. The line "I think it's over" is repeated frequently in the chorus, symbolizing the realization that the relationship has run its course.


The song ends with a sense of finality, as the singer acknowledges that they have tried to make things work, but they have reached the end of the road. They agree to be honest with each other and admit that there is no denying the love has died. The singer has no more tears to cry, and the final repetition of "I think it's over" underscores the resolution that the relationship is ending.
