“Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over” is the 1st single from Amy Macdonald’s second album and was released on March 1st. 2010.

Song info:

Macdonald told Contactmusic.com (Source Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over Songfacts) : “As with all of the songs I have tried to come up with a meaning for it, but the way I look at it now is that it’s a song about dong something because you want to, and not because you think you have to. The example I use is the global warming issue. I think it’s really important issue, but I also think that people should do something about it because they want to and they feel passionate, not because the government say you must stop driving or you must stop flying. I don’t think that works.”

Lyrics:

Tell me why this world is a mess
I thought you always tried your best
Tell me what I’m out to do
Maybe you should do it too

Tell me why they’re sleeping alone
No house no where to call a home
Tell me what I’m meant to see
Won’t you stop preaching at me

And I wanna see what it’s all about
And I wanna live, wanna give something back
Don’t tell me that it’s over
It’s only just begun
Don’t tell me that it’s over
Or that this song is sung
The song is sung

All the money in the world
Would never slit all the wrongs to right
All the fire in the world
Would never set my heart alive

I dream of a day when it’s all gone away
And the sun is shining bright
I dream of a day when it’s all gone away
But dreams are for night

And I wanna see what it’s all about
