I Know It's Over Lyrics - Jeff Buckley

Review The Song (5)



(Morrissey/J.Marr)
Originally performed by The Smiths. Jeff performed it several times, usually in medley with Hallelujah or with Kangaroo.

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head,
And as I climb into an empty bed,
Oh well, enough said,
I know it's over still I cling,
I don't know where else I can go,
Over.
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head,
See the sea wants to take me,
The knife wants to slit me,
Do you think you can help me,
Sad veiled bride please be happy,
Handsome groom give her room,
Loud loutish lover treat her kindly,
Though she needs you more than she loves you,

I know it's over - still I cling,
I don't know where else I can go - over; Over.
I know it's over and it never really began,
But in my heart it was so real,
And you even spoke to me and said,
"If you're so funny, then why are you on your own tonight?"
"And if you're so clever then why are you on your own tonight?"
"And if you're so very entertaining then why are you on your own tonight?"
"And if you're so very good looking, why do you sleep alone tonight?"
I know,
Because tonight is just like any other night,
That's why you're on your own tonight,
With your triumphs and your charms,
while they're in each other's arms,
It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate,
it takes strength to be gentle and kind,
over and over and over.
It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate,
It takes guts to be gentle and kind,
Over, over.
Love is natural and real,
But not for you my love,
Not tonight my love.
Love is natural and real,
But not for such as you and I my love,
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head,
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head,
Ohhh-ohh,
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head.

Jeff shows his creativity with this song and uses his power to make every lyric extremely emotive. I have listened to this song hundreds upon thousands of times and it still brings out deep memories in me. Thank you Jeff

Excellent choice not to put any name or initials to that review. I wouldn't want opinions such as those you've expressed attributed to me, either. To characterize Buckley's performance as "whiny" brings into question the proper functioning of your auditory system. I feel sorry for someone who fails to observe and enjoy the passion and beauty Buckley brought to this song.

The sycophantic slags all say... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/27/09

Your opinions, although interesting, are irrelevant. Make no mistake: I am very fond of the late Mr. Buckley and actually quite fancy his cover, but the original version is still far superior. In comparasion with The Smiths' resigned majesty, Jeff Buckley sounds like a self-indulgent whiner, cluelessly faking his way through the song with exaggerated emotion. With that said, I really do think that it was well-intended, and I actually discovered The Smiths through this cover, so despite all faults I cannot help but somewhat like it.

Hauntingly Beautiful | Reviewer: Kirsty | 1/7/08

The Smiths are a hard band to take on at the best of times, but Jeff Buckley's rendition of I Know Its Over is in my humble opinion, far better than its predecessor: simply amazing.

Jeff moves Carmie | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/29/07

So moving! Such a sad song that Jeff as usual takes to another level - I sat crying the first time I heard it as it has eerie & poignant references to himself - "See the sea wants to take me" - how chilling - even sadder that the great voice is no longer here to fill our ears & hearts with it's beauty!
